We offer a memorable wine tour in the Etyek Wine Region, the nearest wine region to Budapest which is famous for its old white wine producing traditions. The village of Paty is located close to the Budapest-Zsambek line. Its hilly location in the Zsambeki basin lays less than 20 kilometres from Budapest. The hills and valleys of this area create a beautiful environment. We will have a short break here to see the romantic Cellar Hill with its atmospheric centuries-old cellars. We will also have a look on the Varady castle’s building from outside, which was built in the 19th century in classicist style. Continuing our trip we will travel toward a neighbouring town, Zsambek, which is located only 10 kms from Paty. Zsambek has been inhabited since the Paleolithic times. It has had Celtic, Roman and Avarian populations throughout its history, according to archaeological findings. A Celtic mail coach’s remains were found here as well as a bronze trumpet. We will pass the town’s Baroque castle, which served as a border fortification in the 14th and 15th centuries. Then we will visit the fabulous, amazing ruins of Zsambek Basilica. The Turkish Fountain and the only Lamp Museum in the country are also worth a visit. Within a half an hour journey we will reach our final stop, our place for resting, wine tasting and having a fine 3-course lunch, the town of Etyek. In one of the town’s pleasant, traditional cellars you will have a traditional 3-course lunch, taste the region’s excellent wines, hear about its viticulture and traditions and enjoy the beautiful view of the Buda Hills. After the program we return to Budapest.
