The Etyek-Buda Wine Region, often named Budapest’s vineyard is only a 20-minutes drive from Budapest. I’d be pleased to introduce you to one of the newest and fastest-growing Hungarian wine regions, where you can meet charming and smiling locals, you can taste the best local white wines and traditional cheese, sausage, and cakes, too. Join my private Etyek Wine Tour to have some fun around the vineyards and the wine cellars!

In its present form Etyek is one of the country’s newest wine regions, although the first document of wine production is from the 1100’s. Etyek’s fast development started in the 1800’s when sparkling wine producers started to source their grapes in the region. Local grapes are ideal for sparkling wine production as the climate and the soil are very similar to those of Champagne in France.  Actually, a French nobleman from Champagne started to produce grapes for sparkling wines as early as 900 years ago.

I’d like to show you around the unique cellars carved in limestone which also are the landmark of Etyek. We’ll visit several winemakers at three different locations. We start our walk at the Old Hill, its small, family wine cellars are adorable and have a very unique atmosphere. We’ll continue at the circle of cellars where we’ll visit boutique wineries. We’ll finish our tour by visiting the New Hill, so that you can get familiar with the young generation of winemakers. I’ll also show you around the cellars of a family-owned winery.

The tour includes other tasting options, too. Trying local cheese, sausage, hand-made bread and pastries will surely not disappoint you.

Tour Reviews

Our group hired Julia for two days, the first being the Danube Bend, which I already reviewed, and the second day touring Budapest and vineyards outside Budapest. Again the attention to our interests and her dedication to see that even the smallest request were not only met but exceeded make for an unforgettable experience. Julia is knowledgable, personable, and yet open and an instant friend. Wonderful guide, highly recommended. Thanks again, Julia. You made our trip.
