Tokaj is part of the World Heritage Sites, as well as Hungary’s best-known wine region, famous for its dessert wine the Tokaji Aszú. Tokaj’s microclimate provides the ideal conditions to produce this world-class wine. The south-facing slopes, the nearby Tisza and Bodrog rivers and the warm summers, and long, sunny autumns all play a part in the proliferation of botrytis (nobel rot), giving the wine its unique taste. The grapes are harvested late in the season when they are covered with botrytis, making their skin thinner to produce this unique wine with high alcohol, acid and sugar content. The most famous wine of the Tokaj-Hegyalja region is the Aszú, well liked by many artists and dignitaries. Louis XIV famously called it the "Wine of Kings, King of Wines". Grape varieties:
Furmint is the key player, followed by Hárslevelű and Sárgamuskotály (Yellow Muscat). Tokaj wines:
Seas the day 🚤 Had the BEST time out on the water with my girl @byhilaryrose and her fiancé today! It was 80 degrees and sunny and we had such a blast on the boat just hanging, singing, dolphin watching, and taking in the beautiful views of Charleston 🌴🐬 Hope y’all had a great Sunday! #EDSFTG#vineyardvines@vineyardvines

Congratulations to this lovely couple who got engaged last weekend! To @ryanmacleod92 and his beautiful fiancé, the Cuvaison Team is wishing you many years of happiness! Cheers 🥂💍
We started this week in fantastic spirits as our Sauvignon Blanc was harvested early on Monday morning. 🍃
Though it has been a later vintage than usual we're pleased to tell you that the grapes are looking wonderful. We expect to see a crisp wine with white stone fruit, lime and sugar snap pea on the palate. Some time in our French oak barrels will then lend to a more savoury finish. We look forward to sharing it with you!
sometimes things take great sacrifice to get to the result you are after. you can never truely determine if it’s all going to work out, however, you can control the choices you make and the opportunities you create for yourself in order to ensure that everything aligns to flourish. do not be disheartened of the time it takes, or the multiple setbacks that are going to come your way. instead, embrace the process and use it as a learning curve so that in 10 years time when you are where you want to be, you can help others navigate the path from real life experience. when the time comes, we are capable of more than we ever thought possible. believe in your path✨
Spring at @cristomwine (📸)
Exciting things happening this spring at Cristom - including the expansion of our beloved Eileen Vineyard! Here you can see our vineyard team straightening prospective rows and marking where Mt. Eden Pinot Noir clones will be planted.
Ōhau is a new #nzwine sub-region, situated in Horowhenua in the lower North Island beside the Tararua mountain ranges. For centuries the Ōhau River has been laying down deposits of gravel creating the stony, yet fertile soil, that produces unique and elegant aromatic wines.

First Ladybug of the season.
Happy First Day of Spring! .
Our assistant Winemaker has put a lovely Italian flag to mark Madeline Merlot. We would love to have you pose and post some photos if you would like to stop by the winery and watch her magically transform during the seasons of the vineyard.
