“The wine of kings, the king of wines”. This is how King Louis XIV of France described the sweet wine of Tokaj. A cult wine that demands to be tasted at least once in a lifetime. The Oremus winery was acquired by the Alvarez family in 1993 with the noble intention of retrieving this delicious historic wine of Hungarian origin which is even mentioned in the country’s national anthem. The Alvarez family undertook the mammoth task of restoring Oremus’s ancient galleries dating from the 12th and 13th centuries. The winery, which features classical Austro-Hungarian Empire architecture throughout, has now been restored to its former glory.


Very bright, alluring, golden yellow with a straw coloured rim.


Great aromatic quality. It is mellow but very floral. Hints of apricot, quince, melted butter and very light smoky notes.


Very fat, pleasantly fruity and exotic. Excellent acidity makes the wine absolutely sublime. Never-ending finish.


Although in recent years there have been countless wines displaying the Tokaj name on their labels, only wine which comes from the region can claim to be this unparalleled Hungarian sweet wine. The Oremus 6 Puttonyos is a shining example of the amazing quality of these almost magical wines. Its extreme sweetness combined with excellent acidity make it almost never-ending on the palate. Honeycomb with ripe exotic fruit melted in the glass. An experience that should not be missed, enjoyed either on its own or accompanied by any number of desserts. So great is the range that we will leave you to dream up the ideal food pairing
