István Wine Museum

The National Wine Museum

Dating from 1789, this wine cellar system is dug into the rhyolite tuff 14 m below the hotel, and consists of 4 different wings stretching for about 250 metres.

Visitors can view wines from all 22 wine-making regions of Hungary, as well as displays of traditional and contemporary tools of the wine-making trade.



The cellar system can accommodate groups of up to 150. There is a tour provided of the cellars and the museum and, of course, wine tasting is laid on too. 

There is also the possibility to listen to traditional live gypsy music and watch a performance by a Hungarian folk ensemble.



The museum and cellar are not far from the town centre (see map below) and are well worth a visit if you have the time.

Groups should contact the cellar before they arrive in order to ensure there is space for them (see contact details below)
