    Stop At: Tokaj Wine Region, Hungary

    Begin your private tour with a pickup from your Budapest hotel. Travel by private minivan to the picturesque Tokaj region, the world’s oldest classified wine area. Learn how winemaking began here, thousands of years ago, and hear about Tokaj’s wine cellars, carved from volcanic rock. Pass through Tokaj's villages and vineyards and, after around 2.5 hours, arrive at the first winery — one of three chosen to provide a balanced picture of the region's traditional, modern and experimental wines. Meet the winemaker and taste between five and eight wines, discussing the flavors and learning about the local furmint and hárslevelu grapes. Visit two more wineries and sample some of Tokaj's newer dry whites and sweet aszú wines. Taste five to eight wines at each stop, and tour a cellar system and vineyard to discover more about local winemaking. Have lunch at a local restaurant (or a winery). At the last winery, pair your tastings with cold local snacks such as cured meat and artisanal cheese.
