You can gather wonderful wine experiences not only by travelling to Hungary’s wine regions, but also within the borders of Budapest. Whether it’s a stroll through wine history or enjoying the sparkling atmosphere of the wine bars or the vibrant wine culture of Budafok, it’s worth taking the time to discover Hungarian wines in the capital too.
Residents and visitors to Budapest are in the best possible place to get a full picture of Hungarian wines, with wine bars, wine restaurants and wine shops listing wines from every corner of the country.
What’s more, the doors of atmospheric wineries and sparkling wine manufactories are open to visitors in Budafok, the 22nd district, and the only district of the capital where quality still and sparkling wines are still produced today. It’s no coincidence that the country’s largest sparkling wine producer is also located here, and its interactive museum is an excellent introduction to serious sparkling wine tasting.
