Tokaj winegrowers seek help to protect name

Winegrowers in Hungary's Tokaj region expect the government to take firm steps with regard to use of the Tokaj name, local winegrowers association head Ferenc Marcinkó told MTI on Friday after reports Slovakia had registered the name for wine grown in its own part of the region.

Slovakia registered “winegrowing region of Tokaj” as a geographical indication in the European Union's database of wines with protected designation of origin.

Earlier, the EU agreed to comply with a request by Hungary under which the Slovak name “Tokajska” would be used to refer to Slovakia's portion of the Tokaj wine region. (MTI-ECONEWS)
