Dobogó was founded in 1869 in the heart of the Tokaji wine region in the northeastern corner of Hungary. However, in its current form it was established in 1995 by Izabella Zwack, the youngest member of the Zwack family who make Hungary's famous Unicum liqueur. The name Dobogó literally means “clip-clop”, and refers to the sound horses’ hooves made on the cobblestones as they pulled carts to and from for the vineyards. At Dobogó the centuries-old heritage and traditions of Tokaji are combined with the innovative ideas and approaches of young winemakers. 5 hectares are under vine spread through 28 different vineyards around the village of Màd, in the first growth areas of Szent Tamàs, Betsek and Uràgya, planted with the indigenous Tokaji grape varieties of Furmint, Hàrslevelú and Sàrgamuskotàly on volcanic soils. These are some of the best sites in the Tokaji region and are farmed organically. Tokaji is one of the world's greatest sweet wines, and Dobogó produce a range of rich and golden lusciously concentrated sweet Tokaji, and also some aromatic minerally dry wines from Furmint.
