Winemakers from the country’s notable wine regions — where in many cases the harvest is under way depending on the grape variety — confirmed that based on their experiences so far, this year’s would be an exceptional vintage. In Tokaj, producers have already harvested 70-80 percent of early varieties such as furmint and hárslevelű.
Miklós Prácser, chairman of the Tokaji Wine Region Council, told MTI that the processing of the famous sweet Tokaji aszu variety had just begun and if the weather is favourable, then this year’s harvest would be both great in terms of quantity and quality.
