0

Tokaj has received seven medals, three golds, two silvers and two bronzes at this year's Challenge International du Vin. Sárazsadány's only internationally recoginsed producer Porgányi proved the most successful, winning a gold and a bronze, which no longer came as a major surprise after his successful debut at the competition last year. The best dry wine, a Furmint, came from Hercegkút-based Portius, while up-and-coming Budaházy-Fekete Kúria grabbed a silver for a their dry Sárgamuskotály of 2014.

One of Europe's most prestigous wine competitions, Challenge International du Vin has been held since 1976. This year, the tastings took place on 1st to 2nd April, and the results were published online on 8th. Below is a summary of Tokaj's results. (The state-run wine company's new name, Grand Tokaj, is used alongside the old name, Tokaj Crown Estates, for clarity.)
