Let's pay a visit to a winemaker! We drive you to the wine region and bring you back to Budapest
Plan a whole day for the trip
From 400 euros for two persons
There are 22 wine regions in Hungary, more than in France! Thanks to its advantageous location and climate, Hungary produces bone-dry, mineral white, and sparkling wines, as well as aged and tannic ones. There's a lot to choose from.
There are both traditionalists and modernists among Hungarian winemakers, including the now trendy adherents of biodynamics who are promoting biodiversity and sustainability. Some of them age their wines to classical music, while others use amphorae.
We love adventure, so we don't just go tasting, we go stomping grapes with our feet, riveting barrels in a cooperage workshop, or picking famous aszú grapes berry by berry.
Transfer from Budapest
A car will be provided based on your needs and the size of your group
Visit 1-2 top wineries in the region
At each of the wineries, we will be met by a winemaker himself and will have a wine tasting
We know the best restaurants in the Hungarian province
Depending on the season, we like to complement our wine tastings with grape stomping, cooperage visits, quests, jeep rides, or boat rides
Where shall we go?
Below are our most popular (but not the only) destinations
The world-famous wine region doesn't just make sweet white wines. There are also wonderful sparkling, bone-dry white, and even red wines. And what is the secret of "Tokaj Aszú", the favorite wine of royal families around the world?
We will tell you and show you everything. During autumn, it is also possible to join the harvest and pick grapes ourselves.
There are six wine regions around Lake Balaton, and each of them is worthy of attention. Mostly white mineral wines, rosé, and sparkling wines are produced here – a perfect choice for hot summer days.
We combine our tastings at Balaton with boat, bike and jeep rides, visits to the country's largest farmers market, and dinner by the legendary Hungarian chef who cooked for royals and presidents.
The Szekszard wine region is a 1.5 hours' drive from Budapest and is a perfect destination if you like red wines.
In Szekszard, we stomp grapes with our feet at a family winery, drink pet-nat, take jeep rides through the vineyards, and taste the truffle menu at a restaurant (ppsss, don't tell anyone, but Szekszard is also a truffle region!).
If you don't have much time, the optimal solution is to go to Etyek, the closest wine region to the capital, Budapest. Here the country's best sparkling wines are produced, as well as craft cider, and light white wines.
The aszú grapes for the famous sweet Tokaji wine are picked in late fall berry by berry, and every year we master berry-picking skills in a cheerful company, like this one:

It seems to me that everything in Hungary is within Maria's power. I would call her the Budapest Sorceress as every wish, request, and question was solved as if with a wave of a magic wand. Maria opened for us wonderful restaurants, where you can taste the best Hungarian dishes and wines.... Now I can easily say that Budapest is one of the best places for gastronomic tours.
Maria, she's not just Maria. Our crew has worked with many wonderful people around the world, but never before have we had the desire to take a specialist (guide, interpreter, local customs expert, etc) with us. Amazing competence, wonderful character, and enviable efficiency. She knows everyone, and everyone knows her.
She walked for miles with us, ate and tasted... early in the morning picked strawberries and elderberries for us... introduced us to the most interesting Hungarians and non-Hungarians, "puzzled" over Rubik's puzzles, translated from Hungarian (it turned out that she was also learning Chinese!) - And all that in just three days... Maria, next time I will definitely go with you again!
Masha is a person who turns everything she touches into beauty. She is a journalist, gastro guide, and taster of Hungary's most delicious food and wine. I would say, an extremely useful acquaintance :)
We enjoyed our tour with Masha. The trip was competently organized, and we had no minute wasted. Everything was accompanied by fun conversations and laughter, but I took away with me a huge bundle of knowledge and impressions (and of course, many pictures too). Therefore, I am looking forward to the next tour, and to those who have not yet joined, I advise visiting Masha's gastronomic tours!
