About This Winery
Affinitàs Winery is made up of a few boutique wineries that are located in the Tokaj region in Hungary. It also has the world's oldest classification system which started in 1730, several decades before Port wine and 120 years before Bordeaux. Tokaj Aszú was one of the Sun King Louis XIV’s favorite wines; he famously called it the "King of Wines, and Wine of King's". Tokaji vineyards are located near the border with Slovakia and Ukraine, this area stretches over 85km long and 4km wide. The Bodrog and Tisza rivers dominate the plain and create the ideal conditions for the varietals Furmint and Hárslevelü to ripen and develop perfectly. Tokaj vineyards are blessed with a wide variety of volcanic soil types which not only retains heat beautifully to ripen grapes evenly, but also develops the rich fruitiness in the final wine and impart a remarkable mineral character. This combination of fruit and minerality is the ideal combination to make exceptional wines with a good aging potential.
