Essentials of Hungarian Wine Tasting (with Cheese and Charcuterie) in Budapest

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your sommelier-guide in the early evening at a boutique wine shop in central Budapest, and be introduced to the rest of your small group of wine enthusiasts.
    Head inside the cozy venue where a wine counter and tasting tables await. Take your seat and listen intently as your sommelier offers an absorbing introduction to Hungary and its winemaking heritage: a history that stretches back more than 1,000 years to Magyar times.
    As you listen, enjoy generous samples of eight varietals of wine, all carefully chosen to provide you with a balanced overview of Hungarian wines, from classics to the latest new trends. The wine you taste is bought direct from the producers and considered some of the best the country has to offer.
    Sip on each wine and make your own mental notes as the sommelier puts each one in context, telling you how it’s made and the terroir and microclimate of its home region.
    Learn about the distinctive notes and aromas of each varietal, share your thoughts with your companions, and jot down your observations on the supplied wine tasting sheets. There’s also a wine map showing the different wine regions and a cheat-sheet that gives fascinating insights into each wine.
    After your 2-hour tasting, you can purchase any of the wines at a discounted price.
