The Tokaj region lies 240 kms north-east of Budapest, Hungary, situated in the Zemplen Mountains at the confluence of the Tisza and Bodrog rivers. The soil is largely clay or loess with a volcanic substratum. Tokaj enjoys long sunny summers, while dry autumns and the early morning mists, created by the meeting of the two rivers, encourage the development of noble rot on aszu berries.
The Botrytis Cinerea makes the berries dry and shrivel, thus concentrating the compounds and developing the Aszu berries. All of these characteristic elements give the Tokaji wineries their own distinctive and unique terroir
