What you'll do

Are you visiting Hungary but just have some days to spend only in Budapest? You always wanted to visit the wine regions in Hungary but had no time for that? Here is your great chance to do that during only one day. We will travel to Badacsony, which is the most iconic wine region around Lake Balaton. Badacsony is called the Valley of Volcanoes, where the soil and sunshine meet with the water surface of the lake and the Mediterranean climate. During on our way to the lake we will give you a introduction to our hundreds years old wine tradition. In the wine region we'll visit 2 wineries, where you will meet with the local winemakers and taste their wine in their cellars. At each location your will taste 4 glasses of different local wines, up to 8 glasses total for whole program. We will taste very rare grape/wine varieties , which can be found only in Badacsony in Hungary, such as Budai Zöld, Kéknyelű, and Rózsakő. As this is an interactive wine tasting, you will have lot's of opportunities to ask questions and to get familiar with our friends in the region. At the last winery our host will prepare a home cooked meal for you. After the program we take you back to Budapest.

Miklós

Hi we are Miklós and Erika and both are wine lovers! I am not only a wine lover but also a wine judge and wine journalist. I am doing this since 2005. I also visited many wine countries and spent some time there such as USA (Oregon), Italy, France, Spain and Israel. I also had my own wine store and was the retail director of the second biggest wine trader company in Hungary. Wine is my passion but to see the whole picture you also have to know the winemakers. Fortunately, I know most of them in person. Telling their stories to you makes this event memorable.

What's included

Food
Hungarian home made lunch and finger foods from the winemakers.
Drinks
Wine tasting, 4 different wines in each winery (up to 8 different wines)
Transportation
Transportation from Budapest to Lake Balaton (Badacsony) and back to Budapest

Where you'll be

We are going to visit 2 family owned small wineries in Badacsony, at north part of Lake Balaton. We have 7 partners in the area and we take turns to pick the 2 winery we are going to visit on a particular day. This is necessary because these businesses are run by family members and they have many things to do and are not always available for guests. The hosts will present their wines, their property and their approach to wine making.
