  • Lovely place, really cosy, would go there again. Szabi, our wine guide is really knowledgeable and humble.
  • All I can say is "wow". Amazing staff (Lilla was terrifically knowledgeable about all the different wine regions of Hungary and was an excellent "guide" for our tasting), delicious and surprising wines that were delivered in a tasting room better than what you'd find in some places in Sonoma/Central Coast/Napa/Temecula/Valle de Guadalupe. Open feeling while still intimate and very approachable. Tasty food (cheese board was delicious!). Will definitely go back for one of their excursions on the vineyards themselves!
  • A delightful crash course in Hungarian wine. Informative, delicious
  • A friend and I did the evening tasting, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Our wine guide, Tamás, was so full of knowledge and clearly passionate about wine. He taught us so much about wine-making and Hungarian wines. The historical and cultural context of our tour was accented with fabulous cheese and meat plates (water buffalo salami, yum!). The wine itself was incredible; who knew Hungary was so great at wine?? (Answer: Hungarians). I would point anyone who is interested in digging further into Hungary or wine to this tasting. Rick Steves was here last week, so hit this place up before it becomes too popular!
  • Great attentive Staff + Great wines
