Estate

Disznoko spreads over 250 acres at the south-west entrance of the Tokaj region. Tokaj is thought to be the first vineyard region in the world to have adopted a classification system and, incredibly, the entire Disznoko estate was classified as a first growth property in 1772 at the time of the initial classification by royal decree. The estate's vineyards today are still wholly classified as first growth.

Vineyard

Made from 70% Furmint, 20% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu the aszu grapes (shrivelled grapes affected by noble rot and shrivelled on the vine) are collected manually one by one over the course of several vineyard passes in a total of 5 wooden hods of 55 pounds and poured into a vat of 136 liters of must wine, according to the method established in the 17th century

Vinification

After a maceration of several hours, the "Aszu dough" obtained is filtered. The collected liquid is then racked into barrels where it ferments slowly before being aged 2 years in oak barrels.
