Are you visiting Hungary but just have some days to spend only in Budapest? You always wanted to visit the wine regions in Hungary but had no time for that? Here is your great chance to do that during only one day. We will travel to Páty, which is a 20 minute drive from Budapest. Here you can find old, astonishing cellars, which were built in 1880. These typical cellars can be found only in this region and really looking like the Hobbit burrows in the Shrine from Lord of the Rings. During on our way to Páty we will give you a introduction to our thousands years old wine tradition. In the wine region we'll visit at least 2 wineries (one of them is making organic wines), where you will meet with the local winemakers and taste their wine in their cellars. At each location your will taste 5 glasses of different local wines, up to 10 glasses total for whole program. As this is an interactive wine tasting, you will have lot's of opportunities to ask questions and to get familiar with our friends in the region. At the last wine cellar our host will prepare some finger foods/snacks for you. After the program we take you back to Budapest.

We are Miklós and Erika and both are wine lovers! I am not only a wine lover but also a wine judge and wine journalist. I am doing this since 2005. I also visited many wine countries and spent some time there such as USA (Oregon), Italy, France, Spain and Israel. I also had my own wine store and was the retail director of the second biggest wine trader company in Hungary. Erika was born in a wine making family in Pest county and she took a main part of her family business. Wine is our passion but to see the whole picture you also have to know the winemakers. Fortunately, we know most of them in person. Telling their stories to you makes this event memorable.

We are going to visit 2 family owned small wineries in Páty, in North of Hungary. We have 5 partners in the area and we take turns to pick the 2 winery we are going to visit on a particular day. This is necessary because these businesses are run by family members and they have many things to do and are not always available for guests. The hosts will present their wines, their property and their approach to wine making.
