The Crown Estates of Hungary is a wine-making company based in the Tokaj region of Hungary. The company has a long history dating back to the Middle Ages, when the region was under the control of the Hungarian royal family. The Crown Estates of Hungary was established in the 18th century as the official wine supplier to the Habsburg court.
The Tokaj region is known for producing some of the finest and most sought-after sweet wines in the world, made from a blend of furmint, hárslevelű, and muscat blanc à petits grains grapes. The unique terroir of the region, characterized by its clay and limestone soils and cool, humid climate, is well-suited for the production of sweet wines.
In the 19th century, the Crown Estates of Hungary was modernized and expanded under the guidance of Count Antal Esterházy, a prominent Hungarian nobleman. The company continued to thrive in the 20th century and is now considered one of the leading wine-making companies in Hungary.
Today, the Crown Estates of Hungary produces a range of high-quality wines, including sweet Tokaji Aszú, dry white wines, and red wines. The company is known for its commitment to tradition and quality, and its wines have won numerous awards and accolades.
