Steven Spurrier Stuns the Wine World Once Again!


Steven Spurrier, the founder of the memorable 1976 Tasting of California (Napa) wines vs. their
French counterparts, has organized yet another major wine event, under the auspices of VINCE Magazine in Budapest, Hungary in March 2012.

In a blind tasting, “ a Hungarian National Team “ of the best eleven wines was chosen to compete
against some of the finest eleven wines of the world. The “score” was 8 to 3 , in favor of Hungary.

We are pleased to announce that Tokaj Classic Aszú 6 puttonyos (2006) not only received the nomination for the Hungarian “ National Eleven”, but attained the highest score of all twenty-two participating wines.

The New York Times writes about us in “The Pour” section:

Still, in an Indian restaurant I managed to find a 10-year-old bottle of dry Furmint from Tokaj Classic, and its delicate floral flavors complemented the spicy food beautifully.

The New York Times writes about us:

The big surprise for me, though, was a dry white Hungarian wine, a 1999 from Tokaj Classic. It was made from the furmint grape, which is better known in Hungary’s lusciously sweet tokays, but this was delicate, floral and just right with a tart chicken curry dish.
