On the wine tasting list, find the "Unpronounceable Grape" called Cserszegi FűszeresHárslevelű, or probably the best-known grape of Hungary, Furmint. Taste red varieties such as Kékfrankos, Kadarka and a wine known as "Bull's Blood". Enjoy some tapas plates of olives, ham, sausages, tomatoes, and cheeses from farms outside the city. 

    It was our last evening in Budapest. It was just 2 hours before activity started when we decided to book it. We were happy that it actually happened. Explanation about wineries and tastes were very interesting, Miki has a lot of knowledge about wine producing. He was happy to hear our questions. Atmosphere as very easy and open, time was flying.

    Overall it was an excellent experience, the best we have done in many cities. The host / owner is very knowledgable and professional but at the same time it was a very relaxed at ease experience. The wines were very nice (proper full glasses), especially the desert wine and the cheese and meat platter was done with a lot of thought and care and was very tasty. I no rush experience and we were actually there for 2 hours. You can also purchase the wines, oils and cheeses are available soon.
