The main theme of the event this year is wine and healthy lifestyle, sports and other experiences we can enjoy together. There are several Hungarian winemakers, who play sports in their free time, so sports and healthy lifestyle became part of their everyday lives. At the festival, you can meet these winemakers, too.

The guest country of the 23rd Wine Festival will be Italy, so there will be several Italian wines to taste, too. If you like Brunello, Chianti, Asti, or some new wine types, you can taste these here. The representatives of gastronomy will also offer some Mediterranean goods, but if you arrive here to taste traditional Hungarian food, you will have the chance to do that, as well. After that, you can try different types of cheese, taste truffles or the supply of the well-known Hungarian Gerbeaud Confectionary.

The guests of the festival can enjoy not only gastronomic pleasures, but several other programs, too. There will be for example family programs, creative ideas for children and adults, wine auction for charity, and different concerts, folk music and folk dance programs. You can enjoy the colourful festival, and share your experiences with friends at once, owing to the free internet connection we all can use at the Wine Festival.
