The House of Hungarian Wines (known locally as Magyar Borok Háza) is a shop-museum near Buda Castle and St Mattias Church. In the maze of aisles, you can find over 80 types of wine to sample. The most famous is Tokaij Aszu, ideal for a dessert wine. Producing it involves two processes: first, grapes affected by the Botrytis cinerea are removed, and the remaining grapes are harvested and processed to make the base wine. Then the affected grapes are re-added, making the final product sweeter and more expensive. Beware that price can vary significantly between different bottles.
