Szent György Day

Date: 29 April
Location: Szent György Mountain, Lake Balaton
Type of event: Rural, traditional wine tasting tour in the vineyards of the mountain


According to the legend Saint George killed a dragon, therefore to commemorate his heroic deed there is a well with the head of a dragon at the foot of the mountain in the tiny village of Raposka. On Saint George day the mayor of the village arranges to pour his own wine from the well. The happy crowd visits several ’little bit more than hobby wine cellars’ together and then the whole manifestation ends up in the village’s mayor’s courtyard to eat goulash.
