Wine Tours (Private and Small-Group) Details
Taste Hungary’s private and small-group wine tours explore the best Hungarian winemaking regions, and are led by wine-specialized guides. Trips can be as short as a day trip from Budapest, but can extend for as long as you’d like and can be organized for individual travelers and small groups. The tours are full-day experiences, which will leave you with a great deal of knowledge about Hungarian wine (and wine in general, if you are new to visiting wineries). No matter what your level of wine knowledge is, Taste Hungary can customize the tour for you.
You can expect plenty of beautiful scenery, delicious local food, good company, and many new wines. Lunch will either be at a winery or a carefully selected restaurant. Three winery tours/tastings (each with generous pours of between 5-8 wines) are included, and whenever possible, tours are led by the winemaker or a member of the family. Taste Hungary likes to show a mixture of the traditional, the experimental, and the modern, in order to give you a complete picture of the state of Hungarian wine. There will be time to sightsee in the nearby villages/towns, as well as for a walk in the vineyards to see firsthand where and how the grapes are grown. The final tasting includes a cold plate of local products (cheese, meat, etc.) to fortify you for the ride back to Budapest!
Not sure which region you should tour? Let Taste Hungary know and they will help you decide which might be the best fit for you based on your interests and wine preferences. The great thing about Hungary’s compact size is that every part of the country can be visited on a day trip, and so can regions in Slovakia and Austria. If you have several days to spend, you can combine visits to a few regions to get an even more complete picture of the region’s wine, cuisine, and landscape.
Private Wine Tours can be taken to any Hungarian wine region, including: Tokaj, Eger, Etyek, Villány, Szekszárd, Lake Balaton, Pannonhalma, Somló, Sopron (and Burgenland, Austria).
