The International Wine Festival of Budapest is the highlight of the year for wine lovers as it is possible to taste about 5000 different kinds of wine at this annual wine festival in Budapest. It is always arranged in September and in the same area as many other popular Budapest festivals; the Buda castle area.
This area is packed with stands during the four days the festival normally lasts, and here you can taste wine from lots of different cellars throughout Hungary and in addition, they also have guests of honor presenting the wines from their nation in a given year. We have earlier seen guests from Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Slovenia, and other nations, so this is always an interesting plus to the festival.
During the festival, there are lots of live concerts going on in the area and you can, of course, eat traditional Hungarian food like sausage, goulash soup, meets of all kinds, chimney cakes, and similar delicious stuff during the festival. If you want some more culture during the festival, you should absolutely pay a visit to the National Gallery which is located in the middle of the festival area.
