You could travel to the wine regions on your own to sample Hungary's famous wines or you could take one of the wine tours offered by this new company. Each day's tour heads to a different part of the country, for example the fairy tale Lake Tour of North Balaton is currently on Thursday. The cost of 25,000 Ft includes transportation by air-conditioned vehicle, a trained guide, tours and tastings in four cellars of the region where four wines are tasted at each as the wine maker divulges some of its attributes. Snacks are provided, but lunch is on your own. If you don't have the time to travel even for a day, Wine Time also offers virtual tours or wine dinners right here in Budapest. A five-course dinner is carefully prepared with wines to accompany each course; be sure to visit their website with English, for times of events.
