tokaji-szepsy

The Szepsy family started winegrowing in Tokaj-Hegyalja already by the end of the 16th century. István Szepsy, who is one of Hungary´s most important winemakers (Winemaker of the Year 2001), developed his winery continuously, after his father lost the major part of his vineyards after the World War II. István Szepsy´s wines are amongst the best in the Tokaj region. He focuses on radical limitation of harvest (maximum 400 litres of Aszú per hectar). Not only the aszú berries, also the berries for the base wine are manually selected. Today the winery owns 63 hectares of cultivated area at premium sites such as Kiraly, Danczka, Urágya, Betsek and Nyulas.
