The Eger summer has begun. And there is no better way to experience the special character of Eger wines and the vibe of the wine region than on site. That’s why local winemakers are inviting wine lovers to Eger from 15 to 19 June to showcase their refreshing white wines, fruity rosés and elegant sparkling wines at the VINO Tasting Festival.
“When it comes to finding the right wine for the summer you can rely on the usual diversity offered by the Eger wine region. The style of wines covers a wide spectrum ranging from light to more serious. So anyone attending VINO will surely have a colourful tasting experience at the festival, while searching for their favourite Eger wine for the summer in the company of the winemakers”,
says Gergő Soltész (Ostoros Family Winery) summing up why Eger is the place to be in mid-June.
What makes VINO stand out among Hungarian wine festivals is that, in addition to the wine tasting, the fun is enhanced by street musicians coming from all over the country to Eger for this weekend, as this year the festival is held at the same time as the Buskers’ Competition.
“The city centre of Eger will once again come alive. Bohemian bands and catchy tunes fill the cobbled streets, while artists create a fairytale world under the trees of Dobó Square. All that’s missing is you with a glass of wine from Eger in your hand”,
this is how Zoltán Ábry, the organiser of the Buskers’ Competition, recommends this weekend in Eger.
