Full description

Get an introduction to the increasingly wonderful world of Hungarian wine with an annotated wine and cheese tasting experience in Budapest. Sample five top-notch Hungarian wines, paired with a selection of Hungary’s best artisan cheese and charcuterie,

The sommelier-led tasting features a carefully curated selection of five great Hungarian wines, which together will give you a broad overview of Hungarian wine, including the history, the major regions, the important varieties, unique characteristics and styles, and promising trends.

The final wine in the lineup will be a glass of sweet Tokaj aszú wine, one of the world’s greatest sweet wines (and an essential part of Hungary’s wine story).

The tour's focus on indigenous Hungarian grape varieties and unique local styles means that you may taste wines that you have never even heard of before, and may not easily find elsewhere.

The cheese and charcuterie are proudly sourced directly from producers. You will taste things such as Mangalica pork sausages, free-range water buffalo salami, smoked duck breast, grey beef sausage, and various styles of cheese.

One of our favourite experiences in Budapest! We had a fantastic host who explained about the history of wine making in the country, as well as the specifics of grapes and wines from different regions in the country. They put on a delicious spread of meats and cheeses too - all locally produced and paired brilliantly with each wine. Would highly recommend and will definitely be doing a wine tasting during future trips

This was so worth it!! I never knew about the Hungarian wines and this was amazing. There was this cheese which was aged and I loved it, I so want to know the name of it! But it’s so worth it. I asked silly questions and they answered it with a smile and one of the best experiences of Budapest.

This was everything that Get Your Guide said it would be. Easy to find in central Budapest. Easy public transportation access. It took place in a very quaint tasting room of a local winery. Everyones their own charcuterie board and a flight of wines to taste...5 in all. The daughter of the family that owns the winery told us about each wine we were tasting from different wine regions in Hungary. They were very accomodating to my wife who cannot drink red wines and gave more white wine substitutes to her. Very friendly and well worth the cost. The charcuterie selection was excellent! Highly recommend.
