Full description
You will begin your full-day wine tour with a pick-up from your central Budapest hotel. From here you will meet your wine-expert guide before heading to Villány, a scenic wine region in southern Hungary.

As you travel, you can listen to fun facts about Hungarian wine and discover why the beautiful wine is often hard to find outside the country. Listen, too, as your guide explains how Villány’s sub-Mediterranean climate is key to producing its robust red wines, and how it centers on 11 wine making villages that produce red wine from cabernet franc grapes. Upon arrival in Villány, you can admire the vine-coated landscapes, and throughout the morning and afternoon, visit three wineries carefully chosen to give you a balanced picture of the region’s traditional, experimental and modern wines.

You can then take a vineyard walk to see the grapes close up, and at each winery, sample between 5-8 samples of wine, including cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and portugieser reds, and whites such as olaszrizling. As you sip, gain fascinating insights into each wine with your winemaker host, who will explain the origins and characteristics to you. Between wineries, you can see some of Villány’s wine villages, including Villány itself, and view traditional wine cellars, many of which are still in regular use.

Around midway through your tour, you will stop at a local restaurant for a 3-course lunch. The venue and its menu may change, but lunch typically includes staples such as a hearty broth and a roast followed by strudel. At the last winery, complement your tastings with tasty local cheese and charcuterie, before you are returned to Budapest to be dropped off back at your hotel.
