The fun wine and cheese experience great for solo female
Amira_D
, Jun 2022
I thought it was a great experience and good value. The wines and cheese selection were great and I was provided with alternative meat preferences based on my request which was great. The wines tasted great. I went alone and felt comfortable and they accommodated me arriving late. I felt comfortable with the others around the table the wine helped of course. The selection of wines were great. The only slight criticism would be the host could provide a bit more information on how to taste the wine and what exact ingredients are in the wine. I learned a lot about the regions but can’t say I remember this info. The location is nice and cosy. There is a toilet also.

We had a great time hearing about Hungarian wines &tasting the cheeses paired with the white wines, then the charcuterie paired with 2 red wines. The last was a dessert wine with some blue cheese - all delicious. No hard sell of wines at the end but there was a shop opposite the cellar where you could buy if you wanted.

We are not wine buffs by any stretch of the imagination but this was a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours being acquainted with the history and geography of wine production in Hungary while sampling some delicious charcuterie (and I was accommodated as a non-meat eater as well). Tomas is very experienced and worldy-wise regarding both his native and international wines and it was a lovely group to be with for the afternoon, highly recommended and in a very attractive, historic part of the city. Five Stars!

Really knowledgable and friendly manager, the group size was small enough that we felt looked after individually and not just as a group. Really interesting facts about wines and the country in general! Would definitely recommend as this has encouraged me to do more wine tastings on other holidays in the future.

This is a MUST do for any wine lover, absolutely loved it. The owner and his wife have a cute little cellar spot that added to the experience. And he has extensive knowledge of the wines of Hungary. Great wine, great food, and made new friends from the UK. Don't miss this spot!!!!!

We highly recommend this event if you are in Budapest! Intimate gathering, great wine and charcuterie boards for each guest. The host was personable, funny, and well educated on Hungarian wines. We liked the wine so much we purchased a few bottles before we left. Memorable experience. Booking through Viator was easy!

We had a fantastic time at the Hungarian Wine Tasting. Tamas was very welcoming and friendly, his knowledge was second to none on the history of Budapest/Hungary whilst also always relating it back to the wine. We both learnt a lot and enjoyed the wine along the way. My partner isn’t a wine drinker normally, but came away now really liking dessert wine and bought a bottle. It food was an added bonus if you like meat and cheese. The homemade bread was delicious. There were only 4 of us on the tasting as it was the mid week afternoon session but for us that made it more personalised. It was a really good activity that we would recommend to anyone.
