Most of the medals were won from the Tokaj region. The “Hungarian Sweet”, “Aszú” and “Tokaj Trophy” were awarded to “Royal Tokaj 2011 6 puttony Aszú”. The Tokaj Essencia Trophy was given to “Tokaj Essencia 2007” from Tokaj Trading House (Kereskedőház).

The recently released Juhfark 2013 of the Tornai Cellar not only won a Gold Medal, but also took home the prestigious “Hungarian Dry White Trophy”, which was reserved or the best wines from Hungary. Perhaps this is the highest award ever granted to a Hungarian wine originating from the Nagy-Somló region.
