    Our host Mikki was great: he knows his stuff, open to questions, very friendly and makes you feel welcome all the time. The wines were amazing and for us it was a truly enjoyable learning experience. Would recommend to everyone who wants to more know about Hungarian wines. It was one of our highlights during our stay in Budapest. And we were so much inspired we kept trying Hungarian wines throughout the rest of our stay. We even bought a nice little book called The Philosophy of Wine by Bela Hamvas, which is a treat to any wine lover out there and shows the deep attachment Hungarians have to wine.

    Miklós was super friendly, funny and obviously very knowledgeable about Hungarian wines :) Even as a Hungarian there were tons of new information for me and the rest of the group (Belgians) also enjoyed it tremendously. I would recommend this experience to anyone who would like to know more about Hungary and Hungarian wine and to have a special evening in Budapest.

    Couldn't ask for more, one of the best experiences we've done in Budapest. Miklos (the wine expert) was great - a perfect mix of in-depth wine knowledge, passion for Hungarian wine and interesting stories. The wine itself (and range got to taste) was incredible - to the point that after everyone in the group went to a wine bar recommended by Miklos to keep drinking more Hungarian wine for the rest of the evening!
