Dereszla Winery is Famous for its Dry Wines & Champagnes
Surrounded by scenic landscapes, Dereszla is a historical wine estate perched in Tokaj’s grand crus classés wine region. The winery has a one kilometer long and five levels below-the-vineyards cellar, originated six centuries back that offers an excellent cradle for unique mold – Cladosporium Cellar – and a surface area covering sixty hectares. The estate is well-known for its Aszú flagship wines, along with fresh, fruity, dry wines created with a reductive process.
Since 2016, the Estate Continue to Operate Under Hungarian Ownership
Several families between 1406 and 2016 owned Dereszla Winery. In the 1450s, it was owned by a famous Hungarian king, Mátyás Hunyadi, later acquired by Habsburgs during the Turkish invasion. Over the years, many princes, barons, and Jewish merchants had their bases in the ancient estate. The present cellar was dug in the early 19th century and became the largest French cooperative property, CANA. Later, the D’Aulan family became its owner in 2000, renovated the cellar, and introduced modern winemaking techniques. Concerning nature, Dereszla cultivates different grapes, including Furmint, Hárslevelű, Yellow Muscat, Kabar, and Sauvignon Blanc.
Well-Furnished Farm and Bar for Private Events
By the end of March 2017, Henye Wine Bar and Event Center is built in the Henye Winery, a part of Dereszla Winery. Boasting the picturesque setting, the spacious bar is an excellent place to organize wine tasting, wine dinners, weddings, corporate meetings, and more. Next to the bar, there exists an estate-owned guesthouse with five well-equipped double apartments and a 10-seater room for visitors, made more functional with a large flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, and more.
