Considering the calamities this region and the people living and working here went through, it is a miracle that grapes still grow on these slopes. Let’s just go through it without being exhaustive: foreign oppression, protective tariffs, armies pillaging the region, grape phylloxera, nationalization. Yet, somehow the Tokaj wines managed to revive again and again. If there is anything that deserves standing ovation, now this is it!
