No matter which part of Hungary you visit, you are sure to be close to an area where good wine is made. And it’s not just about tasting the wine. You can also admire the vineyards, talk to winemakers and learn the history of wine and the secrets of wine-making. Going on a Hungarian wine tour is definitely a worthwhile.
If you’re in Hungary, then Tokaj is a must. If you’re in Tokaj, then it has to be Tokaj-Hegyalja. In addition to aszú, a specialty known around the world, it is also worth tasting Furmint, Yellow Muscat and the world-famous Szamorodni, when visiting the rows of cellars. In Hercegkút, you can walk through the “hobbit houses" of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed cellars and taste the locally grown wines, while the winemakers will introduce you to the secrets of winemaking. In addition to the wineries in Mád, visiting the memorial sites of the former Jewish community and the wonder rabbis is also a great experience.
