English-Language Wine Course, 10 – 12 May
Invitation from the organisers: First of all, we recommend this wine course to expats who live in Hungary and would like to get to know wines more precisely, but of course those Hungarian citizens are more than welcome who want to gain knowledge about wines in English.

During the course participants can gain insight into the most important topics related to wines and they can acquire useful skills to build on them in their professional life.

During this course emphasis is put on the theory and – more importantly – the practice of modern wine tasting, since this activity cannot be acquired through written materials only.

The main topics are the essential grape varieties of Hungary and the Carpathian Basin; while detailed presentations are held about the characteristics and wine styles of the 22 Hungarian wine regions.

A separate presentation is about the Tokaj wine region, its authorized grape varieties and wine specialities.

We apply the principles of systematic approach to tasting when it is about to make comparative analyses about 35 different wines in the course.

Via these systematic wine tastings, course participants can get to know better their own senses and their functioning and also the fundamental wine styles as well as by the end of the course they will be able to complete solid wine descriptions.
