On Makár mountain in Pécs, Hungary, in between the wine growing regions of Szekszérd and Villány, the founders of Tokaj Classic had been cultivating a small vineyard for generations. Due to the difficult political and economic situation after WWII, production of high quality Hungarian wine virtually ceased for a period of 30-40 years. The stagnation of the wine-making industry also took its toll on the winery. The scale was reduced, and wine was only produced for private consumption as well as for family friends. The musicians, who were widely traveled and had tasted a variety of wines from different countries, came to the unanimous conclusion that this old winery was a diamond in the rough, just waiting to be polished, and decided to take its future into their hands. With great care, they modernized and refurbished the entire operation. Oak barrels were replaced, new vineyards in the best locations were purchased. For the musicians wine making become a passion. Treating and handling grapes as well as wine is comparable to teaching music students. Talent is recognized and promoted, Redundant growth is contained and brought to shape, whereas character is brought to light and emphasized. Attention is paid to the slightest detail and new interpretation is always sought. As in a duett, the partnership of the grape varietals is finely harmonised. Each vintage is its own composition, maintaining its individual character. As for Tokaji its unmistakable composition is handled with traditional methodology.
Deliciously sweet dessert wine with a creamy texture and flavours of apricot, orange marmalade, honey and ginger. Carefully selected grapes are blended in the winery in Mád.
