Leora and David about the wine route of Baraka

Since opening Baraka in 2001, we can say that our concept has changed over the years. We are constantly learning about the business, our customers, and how Budapest’s culinary scene is evolving. One of the most important things lately that we have learned is, even after all these years, how much we still have to learn.

Wines with honest – Interview with Péter Kovács, head sommelier at Baraka

Peter Kovács has recently returned to his homeland of Hungary after several incredible years of honing his wine skills abroad in Aspen, Colorado. He has developed a broad knowledge of International wines and has brought his years of sommelier experience back to Budapest, and quickly joined Baraka’s team. He searched for a fine dining establishment that would allow him to use his expertise in international wines and at the same time explore the exciting developments with the wine scene here in Hungary. His passion and wide knowledge for wines from around the world help Baraka create some of the most interesting wine pairings that work wonderfully with our eclectic menu.
