Winetasting in Budapest

Winetasting in Budapest

Hungary is known for their wines, and in the nation 22 winedistricts can be found. They all produce wines special for that area, and they all differ in taste and feeling. That is why it is a great thing to participate in one or more winetasting programs while in Budapest and in Hungary.

We arrange winetasting for all kinds of groups, some presenting a mixture of all kinds of wines, while other are more specific presenting upper class wine produced in Hungary. Not all programs take place in Budapest, so some of the programs can be a great chance to visit cities and areas outside Budapest, while tasting delicious wine.

  1. The winetrip to Etyek was very good. Good wines, nice hosts, good food and an interesting story. Besides this the staff spoke very well english. For sure a trip to be recommended.

  2. I enjoyed the five course dinner with six glasses of wine. It was an enjoyable evening, the food was great and the wines were nice. The restaurant was a nice wine restaurant in the center of Budapest, close to Ferenciek square.
