0

The Research Institute for Viticulture and Oenology (RIVO) put up a temporary grape exhibition outside their 18th-century Rákóczi House in Tarcal on 9th September. 73 varieties were on display, including mostly pre-phylloxera varieties, to showcase the diversity that had existed in the Tokaj region before the devastating blight of the 1880s. The bunches came from a vine nursery of close to three hundred varieties, variants and clones that the Institute had set up in the Murat-völgy Vineyard on the south-facing slopes of Tokaj Hill back in April 2014.
