If you’re looking for a place to stay and sip, there are options ranging from small, family owned pensions to countryside estates to cutting edge, eco-friendly hotels. Read on and find out more about wine hotels in Hungary!
Have you ever had wine that was forged in the soil of an extinct volcano? Well, now’s your chance! The Kreinbacher Estate is located in Somló, on the rocky hillside of Witness Mountain. Come here for highly-mineral wines famous for their longevity (try the Olászrizling).
The hotel is equally sleek and eco friendly, giving visitors the opportunity to stay close to nature while tasting some of Hungary’s most award winning wines.
Badacsony is a tranquil lakeside haven for wine lovers in Hungary, and Hotel BonVino helps you take advantage of that. It’s located right next to Római út--the main street lined with family owned wineries and cozy wine bars.
If you’re wanting a spa day you can take a dip in the pool or steam your cares away in the sauna, or a refreshing massage. The room price at Hotel BonVino includes a 3-course wine tasting, so you’ll arrive equipped with a great way to sip your way through the weekend. But trust us--after tasting Badacsony wine, you won’t want to stop at 3!
Sleek and modern but in harmony with the natural surroundings, Kristinus Wine Estate is a boutique hotel close to Lake Balaton. Kristinus offers a modern way to relax in the countryside, where visitors can stroll through the vineyards, learn more about the winemaking process, or even catch a film at their private cinema.
If you’d like to be more active in between wine tastings, Kristinus can arrange bike rental or even horse or carriage rides!
If you book a room at Crocus Resort and Wine Spa, you’ll have the chance to stay at one of the most popular Hungarian wineries! Nestled in the southern wine region of Villány, Crocus opens up the door to a close up experience of the A. Gere wine.
The resort is also home to the lauded Mandula Restaurant, which prides itself on giving guests a gastronomic experience true to the Villány region.
For a smaller and more intimate taste of Hungarian wine, make your way to the Borbély Family Winery. Tucked away in the middle of the vineyard in the Badacsony region, this is the place to go if you want to pair wine with the simplicity of staying in the countryside.
The accommodation consists of one guest house that holds up to 8 people, so this is the perfect spot for a family weekend or a friend’s getaway!

If you’re a lover of wine, you’ll feel right at home at Borbáratok--Borbáratok means “friends of wine”, after all! This small pension is located just a stone’s throw from Lake Balaton, in Badacsonytomaj. It’s an intimate space of only 6 rooms, and this closeness allows you to really feel the family-owned vibe.
Perhaps the biggest highlight is that it’s connected to its own source of classic Hungarian wine: Fata Winery! Wine tastings start from 3500huf/person, so there’s nothing stopping you from sipping your way through a relaxing weekend!
At Liszkay Vineyard Estate, you can have a getaway in the Tuscany of Hungary. Midway down the north shore of Lake Balaton, the mansion boasts 8 rooms, a pool, and one beautiful view. If you’d like a peaceful place to sip on Hungarian wines while relaxing poolside, this is the place for you!
The family owned Boch Winery has made a name for itself as a place for wine and relaxation. This family owned Villány winery takes great pride in its wines, and indeed, Boch wines are some of the most popular in Hungary.

If you’re planning a wine tasting, a weekend getaway, or even a wine tour, you can see there is no shortage of wine hotels in Hungary. Take your pick, and enjoy!
