Essentials of Hungarian Wine Tasting

From £48 pp

What You'll Do

Enjoy learning about and tasting some of Hungary's best wines. At this tasting a sommelier will teach you about the rise of Hungarian wine and what makes it so special.

This sommelier led tasting consists of eight carefully chosen great wines. We hope this will give you a good overview of Hungarian wines including the history associated with them, the main regions, the unique characteristics and styles as well as the promising and upcoming trends.

All the wines selected are bought directly from local producers so you know that not only are you going to be tasting some amazing wine, but also helping the community. This tasting is for anyone, you can be a wine expert or know absolutely nothing, we’re sure you’ll still have an amazing time.

The wines will also be accompanied by a selection of local foods including meats, cheeses and breads. The final wine in the lineup will be a glass of Tokaj aszu wine, which is one of the world’s best sweet wines and the perfect way to finish off the evening.

This tour begins at 6:30pm.

Your Local Host:

Carolyn and Gábor

Travel has been a part of our lives together from the time we met working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean more than two decades ago. We share a special passion (and an appetite) for the food and wine of Central Europe, as well as the people, places, and stories that make this region so fascinating.

We founded Taste Hungary—our Budapest-based food and wine tour company—in 2008, and ever since have loved doing this deep dive into the foodways and wine culture of Hungary. After spending years researching and writing Carolyn’s culinary guidebook to Hungary—Food, Wine, Budapest (Little Bookroom, 2008)—we started Taste Hungary with the intention of sharing their passion for Hungarian food and wine with like-minded travellers who want to experience the region’s authentic flavours and experiences.

At our independent wine shop and tasting cellar in Budapest’s Palace District, The Tasting Table Budapest, our team of sommeliers leads daily wine tastings, introducing wine lovers to the (often unknown) treasures of Hungary.

Location Information

Budapest is Hungary’s vibrant bustling capital. The city is bisected by the river Danube and there is a chain link bridge connecting the hilly ‘Buda’ area with the flat lands of ‘Pest’. It is a colourful city with arts, history, thermal pools and incredible markets, along with some of the best bars in the world! Over recent years Budapest has evolved into a wine and foodie capital where traditional and modern methods fuse in dramatic style.
