Highlights of This Experience
This is a great experience if you want to get a quick overview of the Hungarian wine regions and the wonderful wines that are being produced in this country. The 2-hour tasting will give you a great opportunity to enjoy some wonderful Hungarian wines along with delicious artisan cheese and cured meat, straight from the cheesemakers and farmers. You’ll taste 5 different wines in total, paired with the best mangalica pork sausages, free-range water buffalo salami, smoked duck breast, and grey beef sausage. If you have any questions during the tasting, you can always ask the local in-house sommelier.
During this tasting, you’ll be seated at communal tables, which will also give you the chance to meet and mingle with other travelers or local wine lovers.
This tasting includes 5 local Hungarian wines and mineral water and a generous platter of local cheese, charcuterie. Vegetarians are welcome. Please indicate during the booking process if you have any dietary preferences, allergies, etc.
Why I Recommend This Tasting
I recommend this tasting to anyone who wants to learn about and taste Hungarian wines without signing up for a formal presentation or class. The 2-hour tasting will give you the chance to take a break from sightseeing and to meet other travelers and locals in a relaxed and cozy wine shop in the center of Budapest.

A fantastic experience
“We booked the cheese, wine and charcuterie tasting session and we weren’t disappointed. Gergely was an excellent host. A great experience and we sampled some beautiful wines. We enjoyed it so much we’ve had a case of Hungarian wine shipped home! Can’t recommend this experience enough.”
Terrific Tasting Table
“Two hour slot of Wine, Cheese and Charcuterie tasting hosted by the knowledgable and lovely Anett is something that you should not miss. It is a terrific way to get to know a little and enjoy Hungarian wine in a relaxing atmosphere in this wine cellar shop.”

Wine tasting in Budapest
“This was a real find – all authentic Hungarian wines, cold cuts and cheeses. The staff are truly knowledgeable about wine in general, having studied in London and elsewhere, and Hungarian wines in particular. Very relaxed, not rushed, and very flexible to try different things and go off the standard tasting menu.”
