Short description of the game
At first, you can decide if you want to play individually or in groups. There are at least 2 people in the game, and you can get up to 10 because our tables can be comfortably utilized for up to 10 people.
Do you like roleplays? Then you will enjoy our idea: every guest can „hide behind the face” of famous characters, such as Zeus or Mr. Bean. This situation can be really joyful, and it may help you to get to know better the other members.
The game consists of 7 rounds. Before starting the game, we will introduce you the rules and also tell some basic information about the Hungarian wine regions. It is important because all the tasted wines are selected from the 7 wine region located in Hungary. The chips are distributed for everyone equally. The value of them will reflect the price of the wine casino, so you have the chance to use your money twice during the evening. It sounds great, doesn’t it?
Let’s start the game! We fill the first round of wine, and then players will try to guess the perceived characteristics of the wine listed on the table. During the roulette, we use black glasses – so your vision won’t help you to recognize the color. Actually, participants get to blind-taste the wine poured into their glasses. They can guess the wines’ color, produce date, percentage, and type.
Now comes a little bit excitement: please enter your bet! Chips are provided just like at a real casino! Bets are placed and at the end of all some players emerge victorious and get to leave with a prize. After wagering, the croupier reveals the wine, then she provides interesting information about each wine and delicious snacks are served. Naturally, it is neither a formal lecture nor an exam. So don’t worry, you will not fell asleep because of the boring and long details.
Once the prizes have been paid, the next round is started. Altogether, there are 7 rounds. Our professional and charming croupier guarantees the good mood. The roulette is planned in a way which can be enjoyable for both starters and more experienced wine consumers.
What will happen after you win our Wine Tasting Budapest?
A game cannot exist without a prize. We know this basic rule very well, so don’t worry: the winner can win his/her prize. And what is it actually? Well, this is yet a secret until the prize is awarded! It is important to note that this roulette is primarily a game, and it is not about money: the chips do not have the value of the money.
However, it is worth to collect your chips industriously, and we would like you to reward your skilled tasting. You won’t get money for them – but you can buy a bottle of good wine for the rest of the evening. We have further good news: if you were so successful that you doubled the number of your original chips, you will receive a 10% discount from the price of the bottled wine’s prices. You can buy wine either individually or with any of the participants.
During the roulette, you can order from the bar. And do not forget about snacks – they are essential parts of every ’drinking programme’. Their role is naturalizing the taste of the previous one. So the former experience won’t disturb the tasting of the next type. We recommend you to taste our snacks between the tasting rounds. This tasty finger food will be served between two glass of wine. We also tell you which snack is matching best with the current wine to strength up the aroma. This information may be useful if you eat out next time at an elegant place!
