A very interesting way to discover Hungarian tastesCLARAontheroad, Rome, Italy, January 24, 2018

“I took part to the "Essentials of Hungarian Wine" tour, and it was such an interesting experience! I had the chance to taste different Hungarian wines and to discover their origin and peculiarity. The staff is well qualified and the Tasting Table location is beautiful. The experience was amazing and I absolutely recommend it!”

Highlight of our trip!Hannah F, January 23, 2018

“I can't recommend this place highly enough. We were in Budapest for only a few nights, and there were so many wine tastings/ bars to choose from. We went here and had the best time! Very friendly and not pretentious, plus the wine and the charcuterie was excellent. We had 8 generous glasses of wine and an informative guide through the tasting, which for the price was very good indeed. If you want to try a range of Hungarian wines in a cosy setting with nice people, this is the one. Enjoy!”

Lovely and tasty wine tasting sessionJanuary 11, 2018

“I participated in Taste Hungary's essentials of Hungarian Wine tasting session, and paired it with a platter of meat and cheeses. We were a group of six, just the right size in my opinion. Tasted three whites, three reds and had a glass of Tokaji. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and eager to tell us about Hungary as a wine making country. Had a very pleasant experience and brought home two bottles. I would definitely recommend joining this tasting session whether you're a wine expert or just interested in wine in general. If you come from a country where Hungarian is not that widespread, this is a good chance to try some good wines and maybe bring some home with you.”

Learned about Hungarian Winesalpinum, Nyon, Switzerland, November 13, 2017

“My friend and I did the Experience Hungarian wines tasting. It was fabulous, learned about all the different regions and a few of the many wines Hungary offers. This was our first foray into Hungarian wines and the Tasting Table was great at explaining the history as well as where they want to head in the future. The staff was wonderful, both at explaining the wines and helping us pick what to take home with us. Definitely will be back!”
