“Drink wine to be healthy”.

Cyprus’s wine capital Lemesos lives up to its reputation as a party town with a wine festival that it hosts every year.

The Priorat county celebrates its annual Wine Fair usually during the first weekend of May. It is dedicated to the two wine appellations of the county, the DOC Priorat and the DO Montsant. The wineries involved offer tastings of their wines in exchange for tasting tickets which can be purchased at the fair in the information tent.

Every September tens of thousands of people visit Buda Castle to celebrate wine at Hungary's greatest wine festival. In the unique setting hundreds of exhibitors showcase their wines from all around Hungary and even from a few foreign countries. Even if you are not the wine expert, the ambience and the programs guarantee an unforgettable time spent in Budapest!

 

In the preceding years, the Zalaegerszeg Wild Game Stew and Wine – Zala Specialities Festival was signed as Downtown Harvest in the event calendar of the town. The gastrotheme of the festival is the unique and inimitable forests of Zala, the game and the area of Göcsej.

 

Good wine accompanied by good music: nourishment for body and soul! This is all you need for a “gastro-jazz” jamboree. The 2016 installment of the oldest continuous annual jazz festival will pair up with the most popular wine festival of the Northern Alföld region to feature 33 jazz bands and 50 top-ranked Hungarian wineries to enchant jazz buffs as well as wine lovers. 

Every year more than ten thousand people attend this charming event, held among the Baroque and Secessionist buildings of the Main Square of Veszprém. 

This year fresh Rosés, Rieslings, fröccs (froech - Hungarian speciality: wine with sparkling water) and of course fresh Jazz musicians provide refreshment to lovers of gastro-cultural pleasures. The event is part of 13th VeszprémFest.

Ice cooled wines by the best Hungarian producers await visitors along the Tagore Promenade at the Vince Balaton Wine festival in Balatonfüred. Selected gastronomic delights and free concerts will add a bit of magic to the summer nights. But something is happening on the lake too; the legendary Blue Ribbon, the most prestigious around the lake sailing competition will be taking place concurrently.

From year to year more and more vineries check in the Wine Festival of Szeged, which became the biggest wine festival in Hungary. Apart from wonderful festival locations, there is a wide range of concerts and other music programs: headliner band Quimby, famous hungarian pop stars Charlie, Csaba Vastag,  Andrea Szulák, Laci Gáspár and Freddie from the Eurovision Contest.

Between 9th and 11th September 2016, spend a couple of days at the feast of wines and organic meals in Hajdúszoboszló, the spa town of the Great Hungarian Plain!
