The Aszú of Tokaj, a sweet wine of Hungarians was once cherished by King Louis XIV, Queen Victoria, Peter the Great, Goethe or Beethoven. But the world had since forgotten the noble Aszú; two world wars, the enforced collectivization of the Communist regime and the deadly filoxera epidemic had all wreaked havoc on the vines.
Three men: István Szepsy, the scion of a great Hungarian wine-making family, András Bacsó, managing director of Oremus, and László Alkonyi, a once successful stock broker who fell in love with wine-making and moved to Tokaj. 
One shared obsession: to return the Great Wine to its place at the top tables of the world.
The men set the bar high: they would make the world’s best, 100% naturally produced sweet wineBattling nature’s whims, competing with global powers: could they better the grandest international wine producers and restore the Aszú to its former glory?
