This was an awesome wine tasting! We did the afternoon option and there was just the two of us. Greg was great-very knowledgeable and gave a good introduction to the wines, grapes and regions of Hungary. Some of the wines we had here we later had at a Michelin star restaurant-talk about quality! There was no pressure to buy anything, but we ended up getting 2 bottles and they bubble wrapped them for us. It was a very enjoyable experience that we would highly recommend!

We chose the afternoon tasting rather than the busier early evening one and received individual attention as we were the only party. It is held in a atmospheric cellar room which was just right for the experience and Angela gave us an insight to the wine producing regions of Hungary. We tried 5 different wines and these were accompanied by a good size and typical Hungarian platter of meat, cheese and breads. Afterwards there is the opportunity to buy wines if you wish, however, there was absolutely no pressure to do so. We would recommend this experience.

Fantastic introduction to Hungary's wine, cheese and Charcuterie. Our guide (Gary) was brilliant, he explained all the wine producing regions and the history behind each delicious wine. The 'Bullsblood' was sensational!

This is the perfect introduction to Hungarian wines and wine regions while visiting Budapest. The tasting is held at a gorgeous subterranean wine cellar called the Tasting Room, very centrally located on the Pest side of the city. Our host spoke perfect English and the hour and a half flew by,and my husband and I were the only people signed up for our 3 PM slot. We first tasted a delicious Kreinbacher sparkling wine from the Somlo region, followed by a riesling and two lovely reds Bull's Blood and a red blend, all from different Hungarian wine-growing regions. We then were served an incredible cheese and charcuterie plate - WAY more than we could eat and all fabulous. We ended with a fabulous tokaj which was the perfect treat! This was an awesome experience and a highlight of our time in Budapest.

i highly reccommend this if you are a wine lover. The host is quite knowledgeable about the wines from different regions of Hungary. After tasting the wines of the different regions, you will be served a board of assorted meats and cheeses. He will explain about these also. A delightful experience was had by those who attended.
