The Tokaj region lies in the north-eastern corner of Hungary. It is indeed famous for their sweet wines, but there is a new generation of winemakers drawn to the region’s complex variety of volcanic soils now focusing on producing high-quality dry wines. Royal Tokaji was co-founded in 1990 by wine writer Hugh Johnson and has quickly become one of the most well-known wineries in the region.
