Highlights of This Tour

Eger is Hungary’s northernmost red-wine-producing region. Though better known for its reds (including its flagship “Bull’s Blood” blend), it also produces many whites with high minerality. The region has a fascinating system of cellars, some of which are still being discovered under the town. Many of Eger’s best wineries are located in villages outside of town, but the town of Eger itself has played an important role in Hungary’s history, and is worth taking some time to explore.

What is Included

The tour includes visits to three wineries, wine tasting with 6 to 8 wines at each winery, lunch (either homemade or at a local restaurant owned by a winery), a generous plate of artisan cheese and charcuterie at one of the wineries, and a great day spent with other wine lovers. By the end of the day, you’ll have a good understanding of Hungarian wine making as well as of the wines you tasted and the Eger region. The tour also includes transportation and hotel pickup and drop-off. This tour is also offered as private tours.

Why I Recommend This Tour

If you are a wine-lover and also want to learn more about Hungary beyond Budapest, then I highly recommend that you book a wine tour. These tours offer a unique way of visiting some of the most beautiful parts of the country while also exploring some wonderful vineyards and wineries. Since these are full-day tours, you’ll get to visit several wineries, taste many different wines and also enjoy a delicious lunch.

Organizing such day trips on your own would be quite demanding as it’s not easy to get in touch with the wineries, arrange transport, lunch and more. These tours offer a stress-free and comfortable way of visiting the best wineries in the various regions with a knowledgable wine-specialized guide.
