Tokaji wines received 14 awards at this year’s VinAgora Wine Competition. A Champion award, along with a Gold, went to Sajgó's (Tolcsva-Bor) 2013 6-puttonyos Aszú, while Szent Tamás's single-vineyard Nyulászó Szamorodni took home a Grand Gold. Bodrogkisfalud-based Bodrog Borműhely's sweet Mesés (meaning Fabulous in EN) not only won one of Tokaj's 8 Gold medals, but also the Best Furmint Varietal Award.

The ratio of dry/off-dry to sweet Tokaji was 6 to 8, with 7 of the 8 gold medals being awarded to sweet wines and 5 out of the 6 silvers to dry ones. Tokaj's 14 winning entries came from 9 producers.

VinAgora is one of Hungary’s two most important wine competitions and a truly international event, having attracted 503 entries from 18 countries including Australia, Germany and Spain this year. One of the key criteria of the VinAgora Awards is that a maximum of one-third of all entries may be awarded.
