The world's first botrytis wine, Hungary's Tokaji won an enviable reputation centuries ago, but never before have the development of its wine types and the story of its ups and downs in fame and prestige been presented so fully in English. Relying on an array of Hungarian source materials, author Miles Lambert-Gócs sets the information out in encyclopedia fashion, with easily digested, A-to-Z entries that discuss the people, places, vineyard-tracts, grape varieties, and wine-making associated with this wine. Besides being an outstanding reference work, Tokaji Wine is sprinkled with fascinating notes and bacchic humor that make it a delight to read.
