The Budapest International Wine Festival
TOUR | On request for 2017 | 3 days 2 nights
Buda Castle hosts one of the most spectacular wine festivals each September. Taste one glass of Olaszrizling from Lake Balaton, a Cabernet Franc from Villány or a Tokaji aszú. Admire the buildings of the Royal Palace or that of the National Gallery in the world heritage site and get a breathtaking panorama of the Danube with the Chain Bridge and the Pest side of the city.
The Budapest International Wine Festival is a great opportunity to get an overall impression of Hungarian wines, taste some local grape varieties and get to know the winemakers themselves within a short period of time. We put together this program for wine enthusiasts for that particular weekend, in a form of a city tour, giving as many impressions of wine and city as possible. Beside the wine festival visit, which is the heart of the program, you will have gourmet wine dinner and a light lunch at a Market Hall.

We meet in your hotel or a downtown pick-up point late in the afternoon and depart to the Buda Castle District for the Wine Festival. We take a tram than a funicular. We visit the winemakers together and taste selected wines of the various regions. We learn the wines of Hungary step by step, starting with some sparkling and fresh light ones, followed by the very popular rose wines. We will not miss red wines either, checking on the last vintages of Villány, Szekszárd and Eger producers. You will have some free time for dinner on site. You might wish to try some sausage, stuffed cabbage, “Töki pompos” (a kind of potato bread with topping) or “túrós csusza” (pasta with cottage cheese and sour cream).
You will have the morning for yourself with our suggestion or have an optional sightseeing tour in Budapest. The optional tour ends in the Vásárcsarnok (Market Hall) around lunchtime. We will taste some typical Hungarian specialties for lunch, like the "Lángos" (fried Hungarian flat bread), than have some free time to stroll along the fruit, vegetables, spices and meat booths. Váci Street connects the Central Market Hall with Vörösmarthy square with the famous Gerbeaud Café, where you might like to have a coffee break. The second Wine Festival day meet-up will be at 6 p.m. in an agreed downtown pick-up point. We continue our exploration of Hungarian wines with other regions and producers. Mostly reds will be tasted today followed by dry and sweet Tokaji wines. VIP dinner will be served on site during our tasting tour.
