“Dobogó literally means "clippity clop", the sounds that horse's hooves make on the paved streets of the little town of Tokaj. This is what we found out when we bought the winery, an abandoned house dating back to 1869 with underneath it a magical cellar so typical in the region for it is where the wines would be hidden from the marauding armies that often would ravage through on their way to battle. I thought it was a legend until I spent the first night at the winery and woke up to that beautiful sound.” says Izabella Zwack, founder of Dobogó Winery. Nowadays the house has a special Mediterranean atmosphere with oreganos, basils, figs and a 45-year-old lemon tree in the garden and plenty of Italian furnishing inside.
