A beautiful wine experience
We were collected from our hotel by Tomas and after collecting a couple more guest we headed out to the region of Etyek. We went to three winemakers. A vineyard called Debreczeni & Ferenczi. Amazing vineyard, lovely people and great nibbles to pair with the wines we tasted. The next was a vineyard called Nadas. Run by a wonderful young couple who had a quaint little shop and they made us feel very welcome. The third was Vertes. A bit more off the beaten track but just as lovely. We had a meal here of soup and bread. Definitely a trip we will never forget and we got some fantastic wines along the way.
More for the white wine, rose and bubbly wine drinkers but we did get to try a couple of really great reds too.

An experience not to be missed...
This experience was absolutely fantastic and a must for anyone who is visiting Budapest. We had a fantastic time visiting the vineyards and sampling the wine in the Etyek region.

Our guide, Thomas, was incredibly passionate about Hungarian wine and extremely knowledgeable. He did not just talk about the uniqueness of the wine varieties but also the history of the country.

A must when visiting Budapeste
Wonderful tour guided by Thomas. The Etyek region is just around 30 to 40m away from Budapeste which is quite convenient.
Our guide was quite knowledgeable of the country’s history, and was able to give us a nice picture of the wine region we were visiting.
The local landscape and people are extremely pleasant. The visits and tasting went wonderfully. Nádas winery is located in the old side of the hills and the tasting gave us a glimpse of the various wines produced at the estate with a variety of local and international casts.
We then move to the new side of hill for a typical Hungarian lunch at Debreczeni Pince. The host tailored the wine tasting to the menu and guided us through the tasting alongside the food which really enhances the experience. The estate is truly beautiful.
Would recommend to anyone visiting Budapest.

Great wine with a wonderful guide
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 friendly!
