Wine chats: On Tokaji, the rare sweet wine of Hungary
Knowledge gleaned from conversations with winemakers and educators.
Bill St. John talks with Ben Howkins, co-founder of Royal Tokaji, Hungary.



"In the 17th and 18th centuries, high sugar content in a wine was considered a health restorative. Tokaji was the only bottle that was allowed at the bedside of the pope!'

Bill St. John states ‘In my line of work, I meet winemakers and winery owners from allover the world. Their conversations with me pass on so much about wine - what it means to them, what they themselves have learned about it, and how better to appreciate it. I'd like to share some of these conversations, passing on to you what these folk first gave to me.’
