A leading global wine publication, the Wine Enthusiast, published its Top 100 List of 2017 yesterday and ranked Chateau Dereszla's 2009 5 puttonyos Tokaji Aszú in 20th place with 95 points.
The winery stated in their announcement that this recognition is not only for Dereszla Winery but also for the Tokaj Wine Region and Hungary's overall winemaking success. This is the third time that a wine from this winery has been ranked in a world-renowned list of the world's top 100 wines. Most recently, another wine produced by Winemaker Edit Bai- the 2007 vintage 5 puttonyos aszú was ranked in 20th in the top 100 listing by the Wine Spectator, another leading worldwide Wine Magazine.
The Dereszla Winery currently has about eight thousand tonnes of grapes from 130 hectares in two locations. Besides the aszú wines, the production of dry and sparkling wines is becoming increasingly important. The winery sells 80 percent of its wines abroad in more than 40 countries, most notably France, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Scandinavian countries and Poland.
