Disznókő is one of the most famous wine estates in Hungary and has a long history. Since 1732, these wines with their origins from the Tokaji region have been certified as "grand cru". The wines have their own style; legendary, noble and Hungarian sweet. The Disznókő vineyard is one of the most appreciated and reputed vineyards for Tokaji Aszu wines. The high-lying vineyards are located in the warmest area of Tokaji and therefore enjoy the best terroir in that region. It is one of the few estates that consists of one whole and where the winery is located in the middle of its own vineyards. Moreover, Disznókő only uses its own grapes, which means that the concentration of knowledge about the winemaking process is optimal. The estate was first owned by several noble families. In 1992 Disznokő came into the possession of AXA Millesimes: a group that includes a number of prestigious wineries such as Chateau Pichon-Longueville Baron in Bordeaux and Quinto do Noval in Oporto. This group is part of the French AXA Insurance.
Laszlo Meszaros has been active as a winemaker on Disznókő since 1995. He has studied in France and Hungary. From 2000, he has been in charge of the winery and Disznókő wins prestige. In and outside Hungary, Laszlo is an advocate of a fresher style of sweet wines, strongly for the Renaissance of the Tokaji.
