Tokaj-Hegyalja is a historical wine region located in northeastern Hungary.

The region consists of 28 named villages and 7,000 hectares of classified vineyards, of which an estimated 5,000 are currently planted. Tokaj has been declared a World Heritage Site. However, its fame long predated this distinction because it is the origin of Tokaji aszĂș wine, the world's oldest botrytized wine.
