TOKAJ WINE REGION
The village with great history of Tokaj-Hegyalja –a thriving agricultural town already in the 1600s – is located at the geometrical centre of Europe, where churches of the Baroque style and old mansions decorate the scene for enjoying wines. Tállya’s exciting landscape consists of former noblemen’s estate centres and houses, mansions, cellars as well as the vineyards surrounding the village. This is a place where once the countryside’s gentlemen smoked cigars in front of the oak gates of the press buildings, and the wine maturing in the barrels of the cellar labyrinths was enjoyed by emperors, popes and poets – today you find a historically rich environment which is enlivened by a passion for wine, gastronomy and arts. The village is a mere 2-hour drive from Budapest on the motorway, and hundreds of years of wine-making history, rich monumental and cultural heritage, special natural habitat features, the most extended wine cellar labyrinth of the wine region, local traditions, excellent accommodation options and quality culinary treats all come together to mark its outstanding significance.
