You’ll also learn about the compelling urban legends surrounding them, the past and the future of Hungary’s wine regions and the most important Hungarian wine- and table-phrases. Through this experience, we want you to gain a deep understanding of the role of Hungarian wines, and how they shaped the culture, art scene and history of Hungary.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
This exceptional culinary experience goes far beyond ordinary wine tasting. While tasting six of the best Hungarian wines, ourexperienced sommelier, Réka, will brief you about the various characteristics of the Hungarian grape varieties and wine regions. Apart from the most famous ones we will introduce you to unusual grapes and wines that are mostly unheard of outside of the country but are well-worth the appraisal.
Since we want you to gain a true understanding of Hungarian wine production, we’ll further introduce you to the unique and ancient technology behind the world-famous sweet dessert wine “Aszú” of Tokaj as well as the latest trends of the Hungarian wine-scene.
By joining our tasting, we’ll also teach you the most important Hungarian culinary- and table phrases and will show you how the world of wine has shaped our culture and history. Ever heard of the so-called wine songs? Indeed, there is a whole genre of Hungarian folk music and lyric poetry dedicated solely to the enjoyment of wine that we’ll escape to together, if only for a short while.
Since no sip is complete without a proper treat for the stomach, we’ve furthermore prepared the best of Hungarian tapas for you. Get ready for delicious cheeses and salami that are the perfect supplement to this tasting experience.
To make sure that the experience stays as memorable as possible, we have prepared a quiz for you at the end and will treat you with a little special surprise before we let you go.

”Fungarian’s wine tasting was such a fun experience. Wine tastings can be stuffy and even though you learn a lot about the wines, most things are forgotten when you leave the room. Our sommelier Réká told us about the wine, the wine regions, the producers of the wines that we tasted (of which several are friends of her). The Hungarians wines are excellent and there are true gems to be found – and that at prices far below wines from other countries. It became a much more personal tasting than the ones I’ve encountered before. It was a good mix of love for wine and having fun while drinking it.”
