Hungary, Tokaji

The name Diszn贸k艖 - the rock of the wild boar - was first recorded in 1413 and refers to a large rock sat atop a small hill overlooking the vineyards. Listed as a "first growth" as far back as 1732, this 150ha vineyard in the south west of the Tokaji region has long been regarded as one of the region's finest.

As with much of Tokaji, Diszn贸k艖's fortunes suffered under nationalisation during the Communist era. But, in 1992, it was purchased by AXA Mill茅simes (owners of Ch芒teau Pichon Longueville and Quinta do Noval, amongst others) who have reinvigorated Diszn贸k艖 and put in the love and investment required to return it to the top rank of Tokaji estates.
