Károly Ats: Winemaker of the Year 2012
The Grand Tokaj winery boasts the largest cellar in the Tokaj and East-Central Europe as a whole. The winery built the cellar into the Hatalos Hill on the edge of the villages of Szegi and Szegilong, converting a series more than five kilometers of 400-year-old rock mines. The vast cellar system is used for the storage and maturing of wines, its temperature providing excellent conditions for maturing Aszú and Szamorodni wines in wooden barrels. The cellars can accommodate several thousand such barrels.
