Day tour to Tokaj or Villany wine region with a wine-specialized tour guide


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

Visit TOKAJ if you prefer whites.
It is a World Heritage Site, as well as Hungary's best-known wine region.
Tokaj's microclimate provides the ideal conditions to produce this world-class wine, it is a medicine, a real nectar. The south-facing slopes, the nearby Tisza and Bodrog rivers and the warm summers, long, sunny autumns all play a part in the development of noble rot, giving the wine its unique taste.
Its the most famous for its dessert wine called Aszú but besides Aszú and other late harvest wines more and more emphasis have been put recently on making dry whites, mostly Furmint.

If you are red wine drinker and like full bodied reds then VILLANY is the region for you to visit.
It is the most southern Hungarian wine region and has a sub-mediterranean character hot summer, mild winter with a lot of sunshine that is why the wines from Villány are full-bodied and spicy and of the highest quality. The treasures of the region include the protected streets of cellars of Paloknya, Villanykovesd and Villany
