“Very Unique Wine Tasting Tour”:
This tour wasn't your typical wine tasting tour . . . but began with an amazing walk through the caverns where wine is stored in the wine barrels deep into the hillside of this remote village outside of Budapest. These caverns are hundreds of years old and are still used today as a holding place to age the wine before bottling. During the tour the process for making and storing the wines was discussed. Adding the tour of the caverns along with the traditional wine tasting event created a very unique experience. We highly recommend this tour !!!!! Linda & Steve
“Amazing glimpse of centuries old wine cellers that promise to form the heart of a vibrant future wine community.”
Our private tour of one of the many underground wine caves, was followed by a relaxed (and plentiful!) wine tasting. It was the highlight of our trip to Budapest, and we would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about Hungarian vitaculture. Our guide was prompt, knowledgeable, and introduced us to a side of Budapest that most people never get to see. Our tour lasted nearly 4 hours, and is not to be missed!
"Quality time excursion for those who love wine & cultures!"
When we arrived at the wine cellars a nice lady took us through the underground cellars and she let us taste many kinds of great Hungarian wine. I didn't know before that the Hungarians have such a good wine, but at this tour I found out!
I can definitely recommend this tour if you like wine and cultures.
