István Szepsy won the “Les Seigneur du Vin” honor on World Wine Symposium.
Perhaps no one correct me if I say he is the most prestigious member of the Hungarian wine makers, who justly won this award. I met him first in a tourism conference a few years ago, where he talked about Tokaj wines as hungaricum. I heard his voice and saw his stature for the first time, but I never forget. A tiny figure man with long winemaking history, and engaging personality. I said before about „autenticitiy” what is the most important for me in wine, and this is why I like the whole world of wine making. Well, if somebody doesn’t know what I am talking about, listen to how he yarns about Tokaj and Mád.
About this award: The World Wine Symposium, created by François Mauss, president and founder of the Grand Jury Européen, was born from the simple desire to create a global forum of reference for the principal actors within the world of fine wine: producers, suppliers, distributors, négociants, journalists, politicians and connoisseurs. This event is hallmarked by wine Godfathers like Aubert de Villaine (Domaine de la Romanée-Conti), Angelo Gaja, Egon Müller, Pablo Alvarè (Vega Sicilia). “Wine is not simply a commercial commodity, rather, it is a product infused with historical and cultural dimensions that must be protected and defended.”
