wine and food tour in Lake Balaton (Balatonfured-Csopak and/ or Badacsony) region


If you come to Budapest for more than just a couple of days make a trip to one of our wine regions and enjoy an unforgettable day, experience history, culture and taste some of the still undiscovered wines.
During these wine tasting tours one can get acquainted with the history and character of the wine regions of Hungary see the countryside and that of the international and local grape selections and the different wines produced from these grapes.

During the day you can visit two or three wineries - you will get the chance to discover and taste wines in small and medium size family cellars where you will have the opportunity for wine tasting with the winemaker who will show you the cellar and talk about his/her wine. But we can include a bigger one too. During the day we can also tour the wine growing land.

I am wine enthusiast as well and a WSET Diploma holder (Wine and Spirit Education Trust).

Itinerary

I recommend to go to Lake BALATON area If you like white wines and would like to combine wine tasting with beautiful landscape and great views.

The wines of BALATONFURED are full-bodied, more warming, their alcohol contents is higher - while the wines of CSOPAK are more modest, lighter, slimmer, and they are richer in fragrance and bouquet.

The basalt slopes rising around BADACSONY on the northern shore of Lake Balaton offer the pleasant combination of breathtaking view and delicious local wines.

If you want we can also visit a vinery on the southern shore of the lake since they have more reds there.

There is a possiblity for sailing on teh the lake - just let me know if you are interested in.
