Some History

 

Tokaj Kúria was built sometimes around year 1900, as a small family mansion of noble hungarian family.  

In this mansion was born a woman called Tokaji Nagy Ida. Her family was called Tokaji as our wine region. One of her ancestors – Ferenc Tokaji – was a chieftain of kuruc rebellion against Habsburgs in 1697 in Hegyalja. In 1st of July he conquered a Tokaj castle with 500 soldiers, but his rebellion was not supported nor with biggest rebel against Habsburgs – Ferenc Rákóczi. In the beggining of August the Habsburgs defeated him, caught him and killed him in Vienna.  

Tokaji Nagy Ida was married with a man from another noble family – Géza Nátafalussy. The last person of this family, who lived in this house was their son – Elemér Nátafalussy – he died in 2014. The family Natafalussy was a noble count family of Zemplín county since 13. century. We know about few of Elemér’s ancestors. In 1219 Adam Nátafalussy owned a small village called Natafalu (by this village was called the whole family). His son Gregor became a king Gregor IV. He owned a several properties and a castle Tubul. The king Béla gave him another properties and also a Zemplín county. In 1473 the family of Nátafalussy hosted a king Matyás and in 1526 in battle near to Mohács, Benedek Nátafalussy was lieutenant of Zemplín county.  

In 2018 we bought the building and started with reconstructions. During renovations we found lot of photos, books and functional furniture which you can find in every single apartment.

Wine Cellar

Historical Cellar n. 17 

 

Area of historical Tokay cellars is located in village Veľká Tŕňa. Currently there are 33 portals where are several cellars. In one portal can be more than one cellar. Our winery owns 2 cellars in portal number 17. One is serving us like archive and other is for wine tastings for our customers.  

These cellars were digged probably since 13. century, when Tatars came on this land. Tatars killed lot of people and destroyed lot of vineyards, what caused stoppage in winemaking and keeping of vineyards.  

We don’t have any written recordings when the cellars were started to digging out, but we know that during Turkish raids, the cellars were already digged and people were hiding there. We assume that people started digging out the cellars after Tatar raids.  

After that, people found out that cellar has beneficial impact for wine aging. Especcially the fungi Cladosporium cellare Persoon, which is addicted on presence of wine. This fungi lives from steam of wines in cellar.  

The cellars are digged into a vulcanic rock called tuff. It is settled vulcanic ash from prehistoric times.  

The cellars were digged to 1960s, after this year digging new portals was stopped. Our cellar from portal number 17 is probably one of the oldest cellars in area of Tokay cellars in Veľká Tŕňa. We assume that because this portal is very close to a village and that idea says that people started to digging out a cellars close to village. The second aspect is that fungi Cladosporium cellare is getting darker in its aging, and color of fungi in our cellar is almost black. Also there is another aspect, and that is that in our cellar are scratches after digging with pickaxes so there was no technique used.  

We offer you a wine tasting in our cellar. It cost 20€ per person and in this wine tasting you have 6 wines to taste. From sparkling wine to stilled, from white to red, from dry to sweet. It depends on current menu. The wine tasting took 2 hours. Every single other wine, which is not in current tasting menu you can taste, but you pay for whole bottle. 

 

You can reserve your wine tasting on this number: +421 908 999 626
