From 28 April to 1 May, wine lovers and winemakers will once again fill Dobó Square in Eger to taste the new 2021 vintage of Egri Csillag. This is the time in spring when Eger’s winemakers present their latest bottlings in the most popular, classic category.
“The birth of Egri Csillag is a milestone in the life of the Eger wine region. This wine embodies the Eger wine-growing community’s ambition to develope an individual and distinctive white wine that is inseparably linked to the wine region. Launching the project took courage and its execution an unwavering will. Although it is just over ten years since the first Egri Csillag was released, for us it seems as if it has always existed. It is a rich, delightful white wine with a complex character,” this is how Dr György Lőrincz, President of the Egri Wine Route Association, the organiser of the event, summed up what the wine means to local winemakers.
The Egri Csillag category was created in 2010, and the first Egri Csillag Weekend was held shortly afterwards.
Since then, the event has become an essential part of the wine calendar in Eger, and this year, for the eleventh time, it opens the season of the great Eger wine festivals in spring. At Dobó Square, one of the most famous spots in the city centre, guests can enjoy the wide ranging offerings of wineries and also bites and dishes that match the wines.
