Gróf Degenfeld

Basic Info

Count Imre Degenfeld was a founder of the famed Tokaj Region Wine Producers Association, established in 1857. His family followed in his footsteps, purchasing 250 acres of Tokaj vineyards in the 1990’s and reestablishing the century-old cellar that initially housed the Royal Vintners’ College on the property. As of 1999, Grof Degenfeld Winery has switched to organic wine production on a total of 88 acres in Tarcal and Mád. The former Royal Vintners’ College re-opened as the four-star Castle Hotel in 2003, expanding the estate’s reach. Degenfeld wines’ high quality is guaranteed by the family name and the selective application of traditional winemaking techniques by well-educated, forward-looking vintners.
