1. From Budpaest: Páty Wine Village Tour with Tastings
Experience the perfect wine tour for those who wish to venture outside of Budapest and discover the wine regions of Hungary. Start the tour by getting picked up from the meeting point in central Budapest and set off for the small wine-producing village of Páty, which is just a 20-minute drive outside of the city. Here, find a variety of old, astonishing cellars, which were built as early as 1880. These typical cellars can be found only in this region and have the feel of the Hobbit burrows in the Shire from the Lord of the Rings. On the way to Páty, listen as your guide gives you an introduction to Hungary's 1000-year-old wine tradition. When you arrive in the region, visit at least 2 wineries, one of which is known for making organic wines. Meet the winemakers and head to their cellars for a tasting of at least 4 glasses of wine at each location. Enjoy an interactive tasting experience where you will have many opportunities to ask questions and get to know the local producers. At the final wine cellar, the host will prepare a tapas plate of olives, ham, sausages, and different cheeses all produced in the region by local farmers. After the program, return to Budapest and get dropped off back at the meeting point where your memorable day will conclude.
