The Essentials of Hungarian Wine - Wine Tasting Class Details
Taste Hungary’s wine tasting classes are ideal for wine-lovers looking for a crash course on the increasingly fabulous wines of Hungary. The guided tastings feature a carefully-curated selection of eight Hungarian wines. Together they will distill the wide range of Hungarian wine into a comprehensible story. Over two hours you will get a good overview of Hungarian wine, including the history, the major regions, the important varietals, unique characteristics and styles, and promising trends. By the session’s end you will have a good understanding of Hungary’s place in the world of wine, and plenty of good wine in your belly. This fun, interactive, and informative tasting is held in a tasting room located in the heart of Budapest. Taste Hungary can also create custom tastings revolving around different themes, regions, or varietals.
