The highest number of lots to date were bid for at the sixth Great Tokaj Wine Auction on 21st April 2018 held in London, with Tokaji wines bringing a total hammer price of over 60,000 EUR. Bidding was live-streamed from London Wine Club. Though the majority of the wines are from recent vintages, a 5 puttonyos Tokaji Aszú 1963 went under the hammer for a record 450 EUR a bottle.

The three-day event is organized by the Confrérie de Tokaj. "This year was special in several respects: the 2017 vintage gave us outstanding quality wines, the number of lots broke previous records and the highest number of producers to date bought a total of 33 wines with a total hammer price over 60,000 EUR", said Istvan Szepsy, president of the Confrérie. The Confrérie's income from the Auction will be invested in the historic wine region in development projects promoting areas such as tourism.

The wine auction brings an array of exceptional wines. Lots offered are both wines still in barrel and some already bottled and cover the range of Tokaji wines from Furmint and Hárslevelű, late harvests, sweet and dry Szamorodnis, and the noble sweet 5 and 6 puttonyos Tokaji Aszú.

The most unusual lot was a dozen bottles of 1963 Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos from Grand Tokaj which went under the hammer at a record lot price of 5,500 EUR, that is over 450 EUR per bottle.
