Tokaj wines are ideal as an aperitif and accompaniment to most main dishes of fish, meat and vegetables. These wines are harmoniously combined with mature cheeses, desserts, fruits and nuts in chocolate.
The first mention of the appearance of Tokaj wine dates back to 1550. In 1606 in Moscow for his daughter's wedding with Falsdmitry Jerzy Mniszech brought 30 beautiful Tokaj wine barrels. There had to taste the wine and the Hungarian wines to drink now became customary as the court and in the nobles. And in 1745, Russia had even organized a special commission on purchases of wines from Tokaj, which bought those wines which enjoyed the highest reputation. The modern method of wine production has been developed chaplain Rakoczy family. In 1703, the founder of the economy Oremus, Prince Rakoczy, sent a batch of wine to the king of France, Louis XIV, who now called Tokay wine "Royal". These wines have always been considered a treasure, their loved outstanding face of world politics, the world of art and science.
In 1993, Vega Sicilia, one of the greatest wineries in Spain, saw great potential in the region, the estate acquires Oremus, located in the heart of Tokaj. Thus, the identity of the family Alvarez added to the historical traditions of the region. Pablo Alvarez, managing director of Vega Sicilia, is also responsible for the project. Respecting local traditions, the family Alvarez has made significant investments in Tokaj Oremus, ensuring the current level of equipment to produce the best wines.
