dnczka

The Danczka hill stands apart from the hills that comprise the Zemplén mountain range. It is shaped like a breadloaf and has a long southern slope. Heavy clay soil allows the vines to easily obtain water and essential nutrients, helping the berries reach full maturity. Rolling fogs out of the Bodrog and Tisza rivers contribute to the over-ripening of the fruit stimulating botrytis development, adding necessary sweetness and roundness to the wines. The name Danczka refers to the owntime ownership by the Baltic port city of Danzig (Gdańsk, Poland). Although the town was largely German, and mostly consumed wines from German lands, its position as a port city resulted in a strong interest in Tokaji wine as a good to be shipped across the Baltic Sea to Russia and Sweden. Also the town of Eperjes (Prešov, Slovakia) had a vineyard here in 1672.

Just Said ...

„Listen then, your grace; his majesty the King of Sweden -
I beg pardon, the Count Haga
I should have said - drinks nothing but tokay.” - „Well, am I so poor as to have no tokay in my cellar? If so, I must dismiss my butler.”
from „The Queen's Necklace”

Alexandre Dumas
(1802-1870)
