Sixteen out of Tokaj's twenty-four award-winning entries were sweet wines, mostly Aszús, at this year’s VinAgora Wine Competition. The Champion award in the Botrytised Wines Category was awarded to Szerencs-based Chateau Cloche's 2013 Aszú, and the Best Furmint Varietal Award was again scooped by a Tokaji wine, this time Dobogó's Furmint 2015. Three Grand Golds were also won by Grand Tokaj's 2013 6 puttonyos Aszú, Pajzos's 2011 5 puttonyos Aszú and Pauleczki-Vin's Muscat Lunel Aszúesszencia 2007, respectively.

A little-heard-of name on the list, Dula is a family based in the Eger Wine Region and making wines from 35 hectares there. They also have three hectares in the village of Tolcsva in the Tokaj region, from which they produce about 2000 to 2500 bottles of Aszú a year.

VinAgora is Hungary’s leading wine competition and a truly international event, attracting hundreds of entries from over a dozen countries the world over. One of the key criteria of the VinAgora Awards is that a maximum of one-third of all entries may be awarded.
