Tokaj Oremus - Even the Hungarian national anthem pays homage to Tokaj!
Already in the 15th century, the first Tokaji Aszú were pressed, and thus already about 200 years before the Sauternes and a whole century before the great noble sweet wines from the Rhine Valley! When in 1562 the Hungarian archbishop presented the noble sweet wine as a gift to Pope Pius IV, it caused a real euphoria among the greats, tsars and kings of the world.
Vinum regum, rex vinorum
The Vinum regum, rex vinorum (wine of kings, king of wines) written on the label of Oremus Aszú is said to have been proclaimed by Louis XIV, and Voltaire and Goethe also found inspiration in Aszú. At the end of the 19th century, however, the aszú experienced the abrupt (temporary) end of its success: phylloxera, World War I and World War II and the subsequent communist leadership left all production idle until around 1989, when, with the help of foreign investors, the Tokaji region succeeded in awakening from its slumber.
The Oremus Tokaj winery, founded in 1993, is one such cooperation between the famous Spanish bodega Vega Sicilia and the Hungarian state. With great success, Vega owner David Álvarez works in Tokaj with a group of Hungarian professionals for the common goal of continuing the centuries-old tradition and producing the best possible Aszú.
