This was a great way to experience Hungarian wine and learn about the wine regions of Hungary and why the wines taste like they do. The glasses of wine and the charcuterie were plentiful and the explanation of the wines were fantastic. The only thing that could be improved

Well worth taking the time to learn about the wine regions of Budapest. Great time and the wines were amazing.

Five superb wines, and the food paired with them perfectly. Christian knows his stuff and there's a good balance of information vs. time to chat. The cellar it's in is pretty cool and full of tempting purchases. Recommended!

This was a great thing to do in bad weather. By the second glass of wine you've made six new friends! The wine is amazing, food lovely and host brilliant. Highly recommended.
