TOKAJ WINE AUCTION BACK ON THE UPWARD CURVE

0

The Great Tokaj Wine Auction on Saturday 22nd April closed with a final total of 116,000 EUR (36,083,500 HUF), an increase of 20 per cent on the record to date. This means that the upward trend continues for the Confrérie de Tokaj's major annual event after the 2016 setback. All the twenty lots but one were sold. A point of interest is that one third of the total hammer price was raised by a single lot – István Szepsy's Aszú of 2011 that went for a record 38,710 EUR.

The Confrérie de Tokaj membership includes producers, wine professionals and wine lovers committed to promoting the Tokaj Wine Region. They launched the Great Tokaj Wine Auction as their main annual event in 2013. The venue was the Castle of Sárospatak until 2016 when they moved it to the Tokaj Cultural and Conference Centre in Tokaj town.
