Get Initiated Into The Fascinatingly Diverse World of Hungarian Wine

Our daily wine tastings are a great way to get to know the basics of Hungarian wine (and taste some great wines in the process), but we want you to take a deeper dive into the wines of Hungary! Our  intensive three-day Hungarian Wine Course includes two days of classes and tastings (which revolve around the major wine regions). The third day is spent in Tokaj, Hungary’s oldest wine region, where you’ll learn about this region in-depth through a master class, winery visits, tastings, and a vineyard visit.
