Hungary is a magical meld of new and old – archaic architecture frames the boulevards of thriving bars and contemporary art installations. Woven through this rich cultural tapestry lies an often-overlooked thread – Hungary’s wine industry. With nearly 100 varietals and 22 wine-growing regions, it is believed that Hungary’s wine industry may predate even the Roman Empire.
French King, Louis XIV is said to describe Hungarian wine as the: “Wine of Kings, King of Wines”.
Despite such history and adulation, Hungarian wine is so often elusive and difficult to come by. As always, Golden Eagle Luxury Trains blend adventure with luxury to design an exclusive itinerary that we are sure King Louis XIV himself would have enjoyed. Aboard our Hungarian Fall Colours voyage, not only will you have the opportunity to taste this lauded delicacy – but you will also visit the very vineyards and cellars from which it was made. On this new tour for 2024, you will journey to the Tokaj region. The region, nestled within the foothills of the Zemplen Mountains, hides a labyrinth of wine cellars. There, amidst the captivating musk of oak barrels, rests some of the world’s most famous wines. In a Golden Eagle Luxury Trains exclusive, you will enjoy a private tour of these mystical cellars and an extra-special tasting experience.
