Hungary is known for their wines, and in the nation 22 wine districts 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 others 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.
