Full description
There is no better combination than good wine and cheese - this tasting brings the two together. This annotated tasting experience features five top-notch Hungarian wines, paired with a selection of Hungary’s best artisan cheese and charcuterie, which will introduce you to the increasingly wonderful world of Hungarian wine.

The sommelier-led tasting features a carefully curated selection of five great Hungarian wines, which together will give you a broad overview of Hungarian wine, including the history, the major regions, the important varieties, unique characteristics and styles, and promising trends. The final wine in the lineup will be a glass of sweet Tokaj aszú wine, one of the world’s greatest sweet wines (and an essential part of Hungary’s wine story).

The tour's focus on indigenous Hungarian grape varieties and unique local styles, means that you may taste wines which you have never even heard of before, and may not easily find elsewhere. The cheese and charcuterie are proudly sourced directly from producers. You will taste things such as mangalica pork sausages, free-range water buffalo salami, smoked duck breast, grey beef sausage, and various styles of cheese.
