Mad Wine in the celebrated Tokaj wine region
Mad Wine is in the Tokaj wine region of Hungary, which is the world’s first closed wine area since 1737. It is present in northeastern Hungary, at the foot of the Zemplen Mountains. Tokaj has a 5500-hectare vineyard area between the Zemplen and Abaujszanto Mountains. The presence of volcanic soil allows the production of mineral and acidic wines. The brand is protected in the USA and EU since 2013 and works closely with local agriculturists. Since 2011, their bottles are closed with Vinolok Crystal Top and have a unique bottle just like Champagne and Bordeaux.
Top-level work ethic at the winery
The winery is modern and elegant and works with great commitment. The yield is low per hectare, but the grapes are of supreme quality. Furmint, Hárslevelű, and Sárgamuskotály are the native grapes grown and used for making white wines. There is no use of chemicals or pesticides, and grapes are brought to the cellar for processing. Gentle pressing is followed by destemming at the cellar. Fermentation takes place under controlled temperatures using a strict yield control.
Numerous awards and a hotel for guests
The wines have a fresh acidic taste and clear fragrance. Before release, wines are aged for many months, and oak barrels are selected after a lot of analysis and research. Mad Wine has won many awards at prestigious events like Decanter, IWSC, and Mundus Vini. The estate houses Hotel Botrytis with 4 double-rooms, 2 single-rooms, and one apartment between the vineyards where you can relax and take part in exciting gastronomic activities and events.
