In 1700, Tokaj became the first European region to have its vineyards classified — its uniquely varied terroirs and climates rated “primae classis, secundae classis, tertius classis,” or “first growth, second growth, third growth,” by Prince Rakoczi II of Transylvania. This classification system is still used in Hungary today. Royal Tokaji’s winery is located on the main square in the village of Mád about 240 kilometers (150 miles) northeast of Budapest in the Tokaj wine region. In honor of Royal Tokaji’s 20th anniversary, the winery was renovated entirely. Designed by the leading Hungarian architect Csaba Bodonyi, it accommodates more than 1,000 oak barrels for aging and has a stainless-steel tank capacity of 2,700 hectoliters (71,325 gallons). It has already been acclaimed as the most important winery in the Tokaji region due to its earth-friendly contributions which range from a green roof to solar panels.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe tasted these wines together on June 10th.
