There are almost 140 grape varieties making up 22 historic wine regions. The more than 200 wineries at the Wine Festival represent all Hungarian wine regions, and most varieties. Thanks to our themed wine routes, those who are less confident in their knowledge of Hungarian wines can find their way around, too. It is our goal to help our guests explore as many tastes and flavours as they can during the festival.
What’s the secret of Tokaji Aszú? What goes into Bikavér (bull’s blood), a special red blend produced in Eger and Szekszárd? Where does the scent of Cserszegi Fűszeres or Irsai Olivér come from? What’s the difference between a light and a full-bodied Furmint? How is rosé, a definite summer favourite, made? These are the questions that will be answered at the Budapest Wine Festival, where guests from all over the world gather to learn about Hungarian wines from our best wine makers and producers.
Of course, to provide and exhaustive list of Hungarian wines in impossible for such a festival, that’s why we’ve decided to offer a quality selection, to showcase the wines that won medals at VinAgora wine competitions.
Look for our brochures at the cashiers of the Wine Festival, as they will help you learn more about these unique Hungarian wines, or about the value and peculiarities of Hungarian wine culture.
