Recognized as one of the most outstanding sites for the production of Aszú wines in the Tokaj region, Disznókő is a single vineyard, cultivated with local noble grapes and mainly Furmint. According to tradition, the must are added, fermenting different measures (called puttonyos, from twenty kilograms each) of acini aszú, or acini attacked by noble rot and collected one by one. The wine that is obtained is called Tokaji and, depending on the quantity of aszú berries added in fermentation, it reports on the label 3, 4, 5 or 6 puttonyos.

Three Senses

Disznoko has a reputation for producing the most elegant tokens in circulation. These are wines that recall candied fruit, raisins and apricots, preserving a slight taste of noble rot and a high level of acidity.

Acclaimed as one of the most favourable sites for Aszú in Tokaj, the Disznókő estate is a single tract of land, planted with noble grape varieties of the Tokaj Wine Region, mainly Furmint.
Disznókő, declared First Growth in 1732, is one of the most favourable sites for aszú grape development in the Tokaj Wine Region. The arrival of the fungus (the Botrytis) and the shrivelling of the fully-ripe grape result in the aszú grape. Several physical factors ensure that the perfect aszú grape develops:


Cold winters, short spring and long hot summers usually stretch into an extended Indian summer. The warm days followed by cool nights in autumn bring morning mists necessary for the Botrytis. The humidity originates from the nearby rivers Bodrog and Tisza, as well as marshy land on the edge of the Great Hungarian Plain.


The Disznókő estate is among the warmest in the region.

-  heated by constant summer warmth rising off the Great Plain to the south,

-  protected from cold winter winds by the Zemplén Mountains to the north,

It benefits from the predominant east-west air movement shrivelling the aszú grapes.


Plenty of sun on the mainly south, south-west, south-east facing plots of the Disznókő estate.
The characteristic soil within the Disznókő estate is a clay soil, settled on rhyolite and rhyolite tuff, a volcanic rock rich in minerals. It has an excellent structure with an ideal water retaining ability and warms up easily to radiate heat towards the vines. The soil has a neutral pH and a well-balanced nutrition content. The rich mineral content of the volcanic soil adds a unique “fire” to our wines.
