Hungary’s Liquid Treasures, the Furmint, Aszú and Eszencia Released under the Buena Vista and JCB Labels

Dreams to come true by crossing the ocean

...”Under the leadership of Jean-Charles Boisset, Buena Vista Winery has developed a partnership with Vinum Tokaj International LLC (VTI) and its Hungarian partners to import four Tokaj wines jointly labeled for the Boisset Collection, including dry Furmint, Tokaji Aszú and Tokaji Eszencia under the Buena Vista label as well as another Eszencia under the JCB label…

“We are honored to have this great relationship with Hungary,” Boisset said. “This is important to us because Buena Vista Winery—California’s oldest premium winery—was established in 1857 by the Hungarian count Ágoston Haraszthy. Today’s celebration helps us to revive a special relationship and honors one of the great wines of the world.”

Eszencia is thought to have been created in the early 1500s and has excellent health properties with beneficial antioxidants. In the old days, it was used as medicine and served in a small spoon. Due to this ancient tradition, coupled with the fact that the wine is both rare and expensive, it’s often still served in small crystal spoons today. Making their first appearance at the event, small crystal spoons were designed and engraved by VTI specifically for Buena Vista and JCB brands.

“As president of Vinum Tokaj International I consider myself really honored to meet Jean-Charles Boisset 7 years ago and know him only as a devoted, inspiring businessman, but also a great friend of Hungary. We admire his passion for the fine wines, for the way he values his partners and we are especially grateful for all his team’s hard work to preserve and keep alive the Hungarian heritage in Sonoma “ – said Attila Balla.
