About
Visit the wineries and the township of beautiful Eger, Hungary’s northernmost red-wine-producing region on this private day trip from Budapest. With a private wine-expert guide, taste five to eight wines at each of three wineries including ‘Bull’s Blood’ (Egri Bikavér), the region’s most prominent red. Though better known for its reds, it also produces many whites (including native varietals like Leányka and Királyleányka). Several of Eger’s best wineries are located in villages outside of town, but the town of Eger itself has played an important role in Hungary’s history, and is worth taking some time to explore. After taking a spin around town, you’ll be treated to a traditional Hungarian 3-course lunch, and cheeses and cured meats will accompany your final wine tasting.

    Eger
    Stop: 8 hours
    Travel to the Eger, Hungary’s northernmost wine-producing region (about a 1.5 hour drive) in a private air-conditioned minivan. Eger has a 1,000-year wine making history, and is known for its blends, and its medieval cellars, many carved from the local, soft ‘tufa’ rocks and cliffs. You'll visit three wineries during the day, and tour a vineyard to see the grapes close up. At each winery, you'll taste five to eight wines, including some contemporary Bull’s Bloods (which are much improved from the mass-produced varieties of the Communist era). Between wineries, visit the historic town of Eger, once the northernmost point of the Ottoman Empire, known for its Baroque architecture. Explore the cobbled lanes leading to the 13th-century castle and cathedral, and perhaps climb the town’s 16th-century minaret — a reminder of Ottoman rule. Have a 3-course lunch at a local restaurant. At your last winery, complement your tasting with a selection of local cheese.
