Tokaj region is a hidden gem. Beautiful landscapes, amazing wines, friendly people, picturesque little towns and villages with fascinating history. It’s a 4 hour drive from Kraków, and I highly recommend it (I believe it will become a lot more popular in the future as a touristic destination).

My friends and me often travel to Tokaj Wine Region to taste the unique sweet wine, especially the famous Tokaji Aszú or Szamorodni. Last week we spent 3 days in Tokaj and it was really very good. We walked on the bank of the Tisza and Bodrog rivers, went on a boat trip and ate delicious fish meals and drink fine wine. It’s worth to try it.

I have visited Tokaj region several times during the past 10 years. Visited many old timer cellars and newly build vinerys. The quality, from the dry easy drinking Muscat wines thrue the terroir driven high quality dry Furmint to the well deserved exceptional Aszu wines, are rising year after year. The best vinemakers are SZEPSY, DEMETER ZOLTAN, HOMONNA, already reached international recognition. The best internationaly owned vinearys having fantastic facilities worth to visit ( Oremus, Disznoko, Hetszolo, Dereszla, Degenfeld ) are the bigest. The whole region is offering so much entertainement to the wine lovers. This is a MUST see to all. Highly recomended by a simple sommelier, myself!

Excellent sweet wines and very nice restaurants with local Hungarian food. The city of Tokaj itself is worth a visit for a maximum of a few hours. The most-rated places in TripAdvisor are very "touristic" but in the wrong sense. I rather recommend finding a vineyard on the way, in small towns and looking for restaurants for local people. If you have participated in tastings in other places in Europe in Tokaj, you may feel disappointed. Tasting in the city was expensive and after tasting sweet wine you will not feel like doing more. I liked the tasting in a small vineyard in a small town that did not have the tripadvisor rating.

Tokaj wine region is a must when visiting Hungary.
The region of world famous for it's wines dating back many centuries.
Tokaji Aszu, Tokaji Szamorodni and Rieslings are some of the best and pricey.
The Degenfeld vineyard is just one of the many exceptional ones in the region.

Tokaj is a small, quaint town offering visitors a couple of wine cellars and a fistful of restaurants. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. I was let down by the offer of Tokaj's winecellars. Hence, if you really want to explore and experience Tokaj wines you have to venture into surrounding villages. I can recommend Disznoko winecellar where a vistor has an opportunity to visit the domaine including caves, learn about the process of wine production. On the spot you can also taste wines. The prices are reasonable. For a visit (3 people) plus wine tasting (2 people) they charges us €11. We were there on the 5th of May. I would rate their wines as 'average'. Next to the vineyard there is a restaurant offering regional specialities. This restaurant is a bit overpriced and food could've been better.

I visited the Rakoczi-Pince es Udvarhaz wine cellar in down town Tokaj. The cellar was right in the downtown are of Tokaj and the reception was very friendly. I did not make any reservations to visit their wine cellar. They did an informative tour of the cellar and I got to choose from 4 different tasting themes. The theme i choose was the 4 different types of Tokaj Aszui. I enjoyed all 4 different blends that they made at the vineyard. The tour guide spoke in english, and the wine was terrific. This was a 5 star wine cellar and I learned a lot about Tokaj Aszui.

Tokaj is a charming little town. The wine and wine cellars plus selected restaurants along the river are a must. The white Tokaj wines can be had in dry, semi sweet, sweet and other tastes. I prefer to go for the new premium ones: like the Muntean. Do not expect excellent wines for a few euros a bottle but rather spend from euro 7 or 8 and up for the better ones. You may also try magnum bottles since these often preserve the taste better. Careful with transport: simple semi-sweet wines keep better in the car than the more complex ones. Otherwise find a winehouse in your homecountry that is able to bring in good Tokaj wines. Warning: tasting wines is nice but very difficult for amateurs like I am.. take your time. Buy some bottles of preferred wines and taste them on the spot end of day. Hungary has zero tolerance for alcohol when driving!! Spend a few days in the Tokaj region and walk/cycle around and get a guide..Watch out: the Tokaj region is larger than the area around the town of Tokaj. It is being upgraded in coming years by the government..Visit some local wellness baths such as in Szerencs, relatively cheap and not so overcrowded as Miskolc, although that one is spectacular but go off-season there if you want peace.. and really enjoy the cave baths. Main tip: good wine can be less good in a bad year...2013 was ok, 2014 difficult for many Tokaj wines. Off the beaten track: try a wine tasting with the owner of Muntean in Legyesbenye with explanation. Rent a village home and learn some Hungarian: you will be applauded..Try the local sweets in the bakeries..

We didn't have an intention of staying in Tokaj. We were driving through this town on our way to Debrecen from Slovakia. The town seemed so beautiful and romantic that we decided to stay there on our way back. Staying in Tokaj was one of the best of all out trip. We stayed in a guesthouse named Bone Vendeghaz es Borozo. I couldn't find it on TripAdvisor, so I guess it's no here, but it's absolutely amazing. Run by great, welcoming and nice people. They have a wine cellar and offer wine tasting, too.
Tokaj is a small, beautiful town with narrow streets reminding of romantic movies, small cafes and restaurants with delicious food. I couldn't find a better place to celebrate my birthday :)

We visited the Vivamus wine cellar in early June, 2014. The initial greeting with liquer was wonderfully gracious. The cellars themselves are amazing, albeit a bit scary as they were all underground with draping/hanging mold everywhere (apparently gives the wine its special flavor), and many of the overhead lights did not work. Thank goodness for cell phones! At the end of the tour, we were provided a wonderful meal of meat and cheese baked into a huge wheel of bread. Then came the wine tasting! They took us from the dryer wines (my favorite) to the sweeter (and more expensive) wines, that take 9-12 baskets of grapes just to make one bottle. The evening was wonderful for the entire family. Just make sure you have a designated driver!
