This wine tasting tour in Budapest is perfect for all wine lovers and such with an interested in Hungarian wine and food culture. This is not a simple wine tasting in Budapest but you will also be offered a lunch. Hungarian wines (at least most of them) are really of good quality but fairly expensive. That is the result of small wineyards who don’t export wines and just offer it on the local market. To keep the quality up and the name good they ask for sometimes redicolous prices for a bottle of wine. If you take a normal bottle of medium quality red wine you will pay approximately 3 times as much as a same quality wine from France or Italy.
Anyways this tour will give you a very good inside into Hungarian wine making culture and also the Hungarian traditional food. Next to the wines you will get offered a 3 course meal including the traditional Hungarian Goulash Soup. You will see how the food is made and what ingrediants you need to prepare it at home. The soup is followed by another traditional meal which is not fixed and some dessert typically eaten in Hungary. During that time you have the chence to tast a lot of wines from different regions in Hungary such as the famous Villany or Tokaj wines. You will also visit a market to see the local food variety.
