Tokaj is located in the famous Tokaj-Hegyalja wine region, at the confluence of two rivers, Tisza and Bodrog. In addition to its extremely favorable natural features, the city is also world-famous for its ancient grape and wine culture. The viticulture and wine culture of Tokaj-Hegyalja dates back almost a thousand years. The documented history of the wine region proves that grape production has always taken place within the triangle defined by the “three tent hills” (Tokaji Hill, Sátor Hill in Abaújszántó and Sátor Hill in Sátoraljaújhely). In 1737, it was declared the first closed wine region in the world by given a royal decree, as a result of which wine production in this region has since taken place within a strictly regulated legal framework. Thanks to the preservation of the viticultural traditions throughout centuries UNESCO World Heritage Committee added the Tokaj wine region to the World Heritage List in 2002 as a cultural landscape. Tokaj-hegyalja combines Eastern, Caucasian and Western Roman viticultural traditions and cellar building customs. Through the building heritage of the settlements, the processes and historical traditions of Tokaj special winemaking can be perfectly identified. These historical traditions have shaped the formal appearance of the cellars and wineries that also characterize KERN Winery.
