Wine not taste our passion?

Budapest, Hungary

Experience hosted by Miklós

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

"If you live in Rome do what the romans do". If you are in Hungary taste what the locals taste. Did you know that Hungary is considered to be wine drinking nation (rather than beer)? You will have a chance to taste 6 +1 indigenous Hungarian white wines, such as the "Unpronounceable Grape" called Cserszegi fűszeres, Hárslevelű or probably our best known grape Furmint, which is the basic grape of Tokaji Aszú. Among the red you can taste Kékfrankos, Kadarka and Bull's Blood. Besides tasting these wine I will tell you the history of winemaking in Hungary. As a wine journalist and wine judge I know a lot of wine makers in personal. I will also tell some funny stories regarding their wines which we taste. Also do not forget that most of the wines can be only tasted or bought in Michelin star restaurants and top hotels in Budapest.

I have been an airbnb host for many years a and decided to show my passion to you! I am not only a wine lover but also a wine judge and wine journalist. I have been 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 winestore 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 about having an indigenous Hungarian wine tasting in one of the coolest wine bar in Budapest? This is the place where locals go after work very close to the big boulvard where tram No 4. and 6. run just next to Trafó House of Contemporary Arts.

    Wonderful personalized experience. Extremely informative. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Would come back again. Miklós is extremely knowledgeable of the craft of wine making. He has a friendly personality and is an instant friend.

    Mickey did a very good job of keeping our attention for 2 hours while talking about wine. He is a knowledgeable, delightful and engaging story teller. Even managed to keep my non-drinking partner somewhat engaged with vegan food, such is the attention to detail of this fine man. Highly recommend this experience!!

    A fantastic experience! Miklós is a very nice and friendly host and is passionate about Hungarian wines. I didn't know anything about it before coming and didn't know what to expect. It turned out it was an interesting night tasting many wines and listening to some fun stories about Hungary and Hungarian wines. Thank you Miklós and I hope to see you again at another wine tasting :)

    Incredibly informative and fun introduction to Hungarian wine- especially for those of us who had no idea it’s even a thing! Miki is passionate and engaging and the wine is truly unique- a must-do experience in Budapest!

    Miklos was a brilliant host. We had a fantastic evening learning about the regions, history and cultural aspects of Hungarian wine. It was equally fascinating for any wine beginners to any wine experienced tasters with unique and personalised story telling. I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to learn more about Hungarian wine. I can't wait to tell friends and family back home about it all. Its an experience not to be missed.
