Wine Estate and Castle Hotel
The chateau-style estate – a dream made come true by the Count Degenfeld Family – being so unique in the Tokaji wine region has started as a fruitful combination of the castle, the vineyards and the cellar.
The four-star air-conditioned Gróf Degenfeld Castle Hotel is located in the middle of the Theresa Park in picturesque surroundings in the shadows of big old trees, offering 20 double rooms and a suite for guests coming to relax. The cosy and elegant armchairs, antique furniture, old paintings and Venetian chandeliers all bring back the 19th century milieu. Our wines tasted during cellar visits and tours can be purchased at the reception desk.

Gróf Degenfeld Wine Estate and Castle Hotel is located in Tarcal, 223 km far from Budapest, 50 km far from Miskolc and Nyiregyháza between the Great Plain (Alföld) and Zemplén mountains.
In 1994 the Count Degenfeld family successfully revived its wine estate in the Tokaji wine region following their over 150-year-old tradition. Winemaking has always included the love of nature, respect for traditions and all this combined with the modern technology. Our chief winemaker produces all the varietal wines clearly introducing the leading grape varieties of the region – the Furmint, Harslevelu and Yellow Muscat – and making sweet Tokaji wine specialities including the famous Aszú wines.
In the castle restaurant for 60 guests, our chef prepares delicious meals to match our top-rated estate wines in full. The cuisine is international, the raw materials and the tastes are mainly Hungarian, but to achieve a full joy in gastronomy, the chef is always bold enough to find the perfect base material and spices overboard. The menu is constantly revised and during wine dinners we always make sure that the meals are adjusted to match our wines served.
The chapel located on the top of the Theresa-hill was built by Count Antal Grassalkovich in honour for Maria Theresa and her generous donations. Since the Second World War it had been posing mostly in ruins. The Count Degenfeld family refurbished it in 2015, and today it is one of the remarkable stops of the Maria-lane passing through Tarcal. A walking path throught the vineyards leads direct to the chapel from the hotel or you can drive there by car. The chapel with the surrounding green park provides a unique, stunning place for engagements, wedding ceremonies, christenings and other events.
