What You'll Do

Enjoy this tour where you will visit 3 wineries with 6-8 wines at each. Learn about the region with your local sommelier who will teach you what makes the Tokaj area so special.

Join us to experience the Hungarian wine country and experience some stunningly beautiful places, taste some truly unique wines and meet some talented winemakers. 

The wineries you visit will be a mix of the traditional, experimental, and modern. We’ll visit the production areas, wander in the vineyards, and tour the ageing cellars, ranging from 500-year-old ancient hand-carved ones to the ultra-modern ones.

You’ll meet the winemakers themselves and your guide will tell you the story of Hungarian wine so you can put it in context with the greater world of wine. The tour also includes a platter of local cheese or charcuterie with one of the tastings and a slow lunch either homemade at a winery or at a winery-owned restaurant, where you’ll see how the regional food matches with the wine. By the end of the tour, we hope your thirst for Hungarian wine will have grown and you continue to seek it out!

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

Tokaj is one of the most famed sweet wine regions, the first delimited wine region in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Viticultural traditions here date back at least 1,000 years. Everything about Tokaj, from its mixture of loess and volcanic clay soil, its microclimate and its indigenous grape varieties contributes to the distinctive personality of its wines.

Two rivers meet in the heart of the region to provide the right level of humidity for creating the shrivelled, raisin-like berries which are essential for producing sweet Tokaj wine. This magical region is wholly a white wine region. You’ll taste a mix of dry and sweet wines, but don’t expect to drink any reds!
