The guide guided tastings you will encounter in this tour feature a carefully curated selection of 8 Hungarian wines. Together they will distill the wide range of Hungarian wine into a comprehensible story, which is hoped will be just the beginning of your Hungarian wine experience.

Over 2 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. The wine is bought directly from the producers, who your guides have gotten to know well over the years. Every wine you will taste during the course of the tasting will be there for a reason, and 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 tasting is designed for anyone with an interest in wine, who would like to know more about the relatively unknown wines of Hungary. There will be a total of eight wines, beginning with an aperitif, followed by reds and whites (and perhaps a rosé), and ending with a sweet botrytised Tokaj aszú wine.

An excellent experience. Carlos was extremely knowledgable and engaging. He was generous with the wines and we were there almost an hour longer than scheduled while we continued to chat and taste additional wines. The cheese selection was almost as good as the wine too! Next time a trip to some of the Hungarian wine regions will be on the agenda.

Carlos was an excellent host with great knowledge of the country and its wines. Totally un pretentious so no need to be a wine expert to enjoy - but knowledgeable enough to entertain someone that can taste weird and wonderful things in a Cab Franc. We really appreciated this experience - thank you
