Overview
Exploring Hungary’s Etyek wine region from Budapest in half a day is nearly impossible unless you rent a car. This guided tour visits selected Etyek’s family-owned cellars, with four tastings at each included. With round-trip transport, a meal, the opportunity to see Hungary’s countryside, and a chance to learn about and purchase (own expense) Etyek’s wines, it lets you enjoy your tastings stress free. This tour is ideal for wine enthusiasts who are pushed for time.
Highlights
  • Get generous tastings of four wines at each of the family-run wineries
  • Explore with a guide for the full rundown of Etyek’s history and wines 
  • A 2-course meal and option to buy wines direct offers a great value
  • Group limited to 12 people for a more personalized, calmer experience
What to Expect
Book your time slot and after pickup at your central Budapest hotel, make the journey into the Etyek-Buda wine region by air-conditioned minivan. Admire the rolling vineyards as your guide tells of Etyek’s white wines, commonly grown from sauvignon-blanc and pinot-gris grapes. Stop at two or three (depending on departure selected) family-run wineries, and sample four wines at each, alongside Hungarian snacks, and including a tasting of a local Törley sparkling wine. As you sip, learn the secrets behind each varietal from the winery owner and winemaker. In between the wineries, see Old Wine Hill, a beautiful hillside dotted with disused wine cellars, while learning about the local soils. Finally, savor a traditional 2-course Hungarian meal at a wine estate, enjoying it with additional wines at your expense. Your Etyek wine country tour concludes with a drop-off at your Budapest hotel.

It’s a 30 min ride from Budapest and you will go to about three different wineries. Every winery has about 3-4 different wines that you can try and make in the last winery dinner will be served. The service is great, as the guide speaks English quite well and is also very very

We had a great time! I believe we were the last tour (unfortunately) due to the COVID-19 shutdown but at least we had a great last evening! I enjoyed each of the locations we went to and Peter was very informative. This was one of our best experiences in Hungary!
