WINE TASTING

 

Take part in wine tasting by visiting famous vineyards and wine cellars throughout Budapest and Hungary. Discover the creative power of wine! What a fantastic experience! Wine has always been considered and respected as the purest and most useful drink (even purer that water). You may have heard what the famous Greek playwright Aristophanes said 2400 years ago: „ a glass of wine will hide peoples’s luck, business success and friends’ joy”. Or what Louis XIV, who was a great admirer of Hungarian Tokaj wines, said about wine „king of the wines, wine of the kings

Yes, that’s true: it was the powerful sunshine, Hungary’s favourable climate and geographical posititon, as well as the expertise and know-how of wine specialists that made our wines world famous even 1000 years ago.

It may not be Hungary that would cross Your mind when you think of wine, but it is undoubtful that both Tokaj asszú and the Eger Bull blood are of international fame. Nowadays, tasting wines is an elegant and very sophisticated hobby, a nice way of spending your leisure time and it is becoming more and more popular. The annual wine festival organised in Budapest is attracting more and more visitors to the Hungarian capital.

Whatever wish You may have, maybe as an average tourist having a nice evening out in a cosy restaurant with the supper including tasting wines, or being an ardent wine fan or even a wine expert who would like to know more about Hungarian wines, we are more than happy to help You find the proper venue, either being a restaurant, a wine cellar or a specific wine.
