The Tokaj legend has grown and grown in its four-hundred years of history, but it was not until 1630, when the greatness of Oremus vineyard was first spoken of. Today, it is the one with greatest universal acclaim. The Tokaj region lies within the range of mountains in Northeast Hungary. Oremus winery is located at the geographical heart of this region.

The production of Aszú wine (teardrop wine) is a meticulous process only possible in exceptional vintages and under unique conditions which enable the development of “Botrytis cinerea” or noble rot. For hundreds of years it has been made by adding 5 panniers (puttonyos) containing 25 kg of noble Aszú berries to a “Gönc” barrel (136 litres) of base must. Aszú berries are macerated for two days until swollen, followed by a gentle press. Fermentation takes place in new Hungarian oak barrels; a slow process which can last up to two months.
The ageing process is completed in 136 and 200-litre barrels for two to three years and bottled for an additional year.

Good stock

Oremus is one of the most well-known wineries in Tokaji. This is in no small part due to its proprietor, the Palacios family, synonymous with Vega Sicilia, who together with the government acquired the estate in 1993. I visited their winery in the village of Tolcsva, where their 115-hectare vineyard is located. This includes prestigious first class parcels that belonged to the Rakoczi and Szirmay families in the 18th century. And there was a sense of opulence at Oremus that I rarely encountered elsewhere in Tokaj. It not only infused their impressive portfolio, but was translated in their splendid tasting room, furnished with plush antique furniture more suited to a Bordeaux chateau. Of course, that has no bearing on the wines themselves, which are generally top quality and some of the purest Tokaj wines that you will find in the region."
