    Really good! We have received a great introduction to the history of Hungarian wines. Our wine expert Miki mentioned every relevant anecdote about important wineries and the origin of the wines that you try. A rose, three white wines, a dessert wine and 2 red wines are tried. The two hours have flown by. I recommend everyone who is in Budapest and wants to expand their wine horizon!

    Miki is a wine journalist with a lot of inside information about the wine. It was a joy to answer his trick questions, taste the wines and the time just flew by. It's very genuine and not pretentious, which is the Hungarian way. I'd recommend this to anyone who's in Budapest (single, couples, etc). The wine cellar location is filled by locals and a walk away from the touristic districts, so even after you have your wine tasting you can go explore.
