Great activity for a couple
Great experience all around. Fun conversation and my wife and I enjoyed learning more about Hungarian wines, cheeses, and other local items. Very casual and just the right amount of wonky information about the wine. Highly recommended!

Private Wine Tasting (Group Price During COVID!)
Sep 2020
My husband and I had a two person wine tasting (given to me as a birthday gift) and we had an AMAZING experience! Because of the COVID situation, private tasting are be offered at the group price and so we had the entire place to ourselves. We tasted 5 wines, if I remember correctly, and were each given our own charcuterie plate to complement the wines. We learned so much about the history of wine in Hungary and the different regions. Highly recommend - was a very special experience.

Everything was excellent. Christian (the owner) clearly has huge knowledge and he was lovely and entertaining. The food and the wine were both the best quality. We left with 3 bottles of our own because we just loved it so much! If you want an awesome wine tasting, definitely book this one xx

Great wines, cheese and charcuterie
Jul 2019
Had a fabulous tasting experience during my visit to Budapest in 2018. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, and appreciated my poor Hungarian language skills. The fellow tasters were super friendly; I was travelling solo. I have recommended a visit to all of my friends headed to Budapest. I would definitely go back when I return to Budapest.
