There is a small village in the Etyek-Buda Wine District, which rightly deserves the name of Budapest’s vineyard, it is the wine district’s eponymous village, Etyek. Start the day at the German Nationality Country House and then discover the secrets of cheese-making at the Etyek ‘Sajtútállomás’ (Cheese Station).
Then visit the Ham Master, where you can learn about the mysteries of ham making and, for dessert, taste some chocolate or participate in a chocolate-making workshop at the village’s chocolate manufactory. If you still feel like some lunch after tasting this cavalcade of flavours, there are independent restaurants or food options at wineries in various parts of the village. In the afternoon, it’s worth arranging a visit to the Korda Film Studio, where there is not only a permanent exhibition but also other interesting events and presentations, so make sure you find out about them in advance.
Then wander around Öreghegy, Újhegy or along the Sóskút cellar row and taste Etyek’s still and sparkling wines, increasing numbers of which are being made not only here but in the wine district’s other villages.
