Crown Estates of Hungary, formerly the Tokaji Kereskedóház Rt, is the only major wine company in the region that is in 100% Hungarian ownership. The company owns 80 hectares of vineyard which include the former Royal Estate ‘great First growth’ Szarvas, Kirárly in Mád, and Szentvér in Tolcsva, whose brown forest soils produce wines with high acid and extract which can be kept without deterioration for many years.

The Company makes Sweet Aszú wines which are made using winemaking techniques dating back to the 1630’s. A base wine is made in September from sound grapes. From mid October raisin-like, sugar rich Aszú grapes are hand picked into ‘puttony’ tubs and are lightly crushed. 3, 4, 5 or 6 ‘puttony’ (25 kg) of Aszú grapes are then added per 136 litres of base wine which then undergoes a maceration and second fermentation. The wine is then aged in small oak barrels for a minimum of 4 years and a further 9 months in bottle before release. Aszú Wines are delicious drunk on their own or with nuts, foie gras, blue cheese and most desserts – particularly ‘tarte tatin’ or pear or almond tart.
