A very interesting way to discover Hungarian tastes

“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!

“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!”

Learned about Hungarian Wines

“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!”
