Wine Club Membership

How does the Taste Hungary Wine Club work? What do I get as a member of the club?

As a member you’ll get a curated collection of three wines shipped to you every month. Each shipment comes with our educational packet, which includes tasting notes, information about the regions, a recipe, and other information to help you learn about the wines, varietals, and regions.

We hope the wine inspires you to travel to Hungary to taste it (and other wines) from the source! Current club members will receive a 20 percent discount on all of our tours and wine tastings in Hungary.

There are no membership fees, and no commitment. You only pay the recurring subscription fee for the monthly wine shipments.

How do you choose the wine in each shipment?

Our team of sommeliers and wine professionals in Budapest choose the wines. We’ve been active in wine for more than a decade in Hungary. We spend lots of time researching and, organizing tours, running tastings, and selling wine at The Tasting Table Budapest. During this time we’ve met with so many small wine producers who sell affordable, unique, and high-quality wines, and we will continue to do so!

Are there membership fees?  What’s the commitment?

There are no membership fees, and no commitment. When you sign up for a membership we will continue to send you a box of three wines every month until you cancel your membership. Your credit card will be automatically charged monthly. You can cancel at any time before the next charge to discontinue your membership.

Wine Ordering

I visited the Tasting Table and want to buy some of the wines I tasted there. Can I do that?

Sure! Drop us an email and we’d be happy to put together an order for you based on what we sell at The Tasting Table.

I visited a small producer in Hungary and fell in love with some specific wines! Can I buy them from you?

We can try! If you like a wine or a certain producer, let us know and we can try to get the wines for you!

I am planning an event and would like to make a large order of wine. Do you offer discounts?

Of course! For larger purchases please contact us and we’d be happy to give you a customized offer.

Can I re-order wines I liked?

If you love a wine that was included with your club selection, send us an email at tastingtable@tastehungary.com and we'll let you know if we have some available (or if we can get more).

Can I buy the wine as a gift for someone?

During the checkout process simply make a note that this is a gift in the “delivery notes and instructions” field, and let us know if there is a special message you’d like us to include on a personalized note in the box. Your recipient will receive the first shipment at the time of the next automated club shipment following their enrollment.

If you think you have a defective bottle of wine, please drop us an email and we’ll look into it. Though we aim to provide top quality products, sometimes faults happen.

What if my wine arrives damaged or broken?

In the rare case that your package is damaged, please let us know within three days of delivery so we can make arrangements to send you replacements. Please also notify the shipping compony upon delivery.

What if the shipment is lost or damaged?

Lost shipments are rare, as all packages have tracking numbers. However, please email us as soon as possible if you have a problem so we can get to the bottom of things! Once you receive the package, it is important to check that there is no damage (no broken or leaking bottles) to the products, and that you have the correct items before signing the delivery acceptance form. If something is not right with the order (and the products are not in perfect condition), please do not accept the package and the shipper will return it!
