I love wine so what better way to spend my first night in Budapest than tasting local fine wines. Even though I arrived 40 mins early I was warmly welcomed and shown to my seat. Before I had even sat down I was poured a glass of wine and offered some very tasty bread and oils. They very kindly charged my mobile phone as it was almost dead. The tasting was superb. Our guide was very knowledgeable, you could see his passion for wine. The cheeseboards that accompanied the wines were expertly picked. I was offered a discount and took home two of my favorites along with one of the oils, they bubble wrapped my purchases to ensure they arrive safely back to my destination. There was absolutely no pressure to buy anything. I just loved what I tasted. All in all a beautiful evening

This was one of the best wine tasting experiences I have had (thanks, Tamas!). Tamas talked continuously for almost 2 hours while the three of us sampled what I think it was 7 wines, including a sparkling white wine. He went over the history of Hungarian wines, the various regions, the types of grapes they produce, the methods of production and more. It was everything you ever wanted or needed to know about Hungarian wines but didn't know what to ask! With some sample cheeses and meats, the wines were magnificent. I felt so much more knowledgeable, but not overwhelmed by the presentation. It was quite satisfying, and when I went on two other wine tours, it helped me understand the context of Hungarian wines. This tour is sponsored by the Tasting Table, which I highly recommend. Try to do this one upon arrival in Budapest so you can enjoy the right kind of wine with your dinner.

Absolutely a highlight of my time in Budapest. Our guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about wine, we learned so much and drank so many different types I felt I understood the different regions in Budapest by the end. The food was also great. All in all, a perfect way to spend 2 hours in Budapest.

We had a private wine tasting in for 4 people which lasted for 2 hours. We tasted 7 wines and has in depth explanations of all the wine growing regions of Hungary, The wines were good to excellent especially the sparkling wine and Cabernet franc
And the teacher was extremely well informed and answered all our questions. It takes place in a wine cellar with lots of character.
If you are at all interested in Hungarian wines, this is the place to go.

Amazing experience! Wine was splendid! The food too! And what was especially pleasant is that I got personal service. I was the only one to book this tour for this day and they made a dedicated presentation only for me!

A really enjoyable evening! The cellar venue is cozy and intimate and the hosts made us feel extremely welcome and included. I don't know a huge amount about wine, and especially not Hungarian wine, but I found it absolutely fascinating listening to the sommelier talk about the wines, and the wine itself was delicious! There were around 20 people attending the evening in total, and we were sat around 2 large communal tables, which meant that the evening had a friendly atmosphere and by the end we were chatting away merrily with all the other guests. Around half the people there were locals too, which gave it a really authentic feel. It was also a great value evening, as there was a lot of wine included and plenty of nibbles and snacks. Can highly recommend.

This is simply the best way to end a day. I can highly recommend to do this. The evening had a perfect balance between tasting wines, enjoying some delicious traditional Hungarian cuisine and listening to our hosts telling us about the wines. Must do!
