    My friends and I had a wonderful experience with Miki! He was so kind, knowledgeable, and generous. We learned so much about Hungarian wines and he answered all of our questions along the way. None of us knew much about the wines and we all felt like experts by the end of the night. We couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to Hungarian wines. For anyone coming to Budapest definitely consider this experience. We couldn’t recommend it enough.

    It was the best thing we did in budapest! The snacks were lovely and the wine was so varied and tasted amazing! The guide was honestly the best bit though, he was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and really made the experience special. It didn’t feel uptight at all and we had a few giggles, it really showed us how good Hungarian wine really is, I 100% recommend!

    Our host Mikki was great: he knows his stuff, open to questions, very friendly and makes you feel welcome all the time. The wines were amazing and for us it was a truly enjoyable learning experience. Would recommend to everyone who wants to more know about Hungarian wines. It was one of our highlights during our stay in Budapest. And we were so much inspired we kept trying Hungarian wines throughout the rest of our stay. We even bought a nice little book called The Philosophy of Wine by Bela Hamvas, which is a treat to any wine lover out there and shows the deep attachment Hungarians have to wine.
