16 November is the date of the annual Whatdoyoudrink? festival in Budapest, the only full day tasting dedicated exclusively to organic, biodynamic and natural wines. The venue is ’Bálna’ (literally ’whale’), a whale shaped, state-of-art building covered with glass.
The Hungarian Embassy will hold a food and wine tasting for the 9th time in Berlin. Outstanding wines and food products will be presented for the German restaurateurs, wine professionals, but foodies and winelovers are also welcome. The all day event is free of charge, but registration is needed.
Top 100 wines is a publication with a unique concept: the entered wines are not nominated by the wineries, but supplied by Bortársaság (the most important wine store chain) and Auchan hypermarket. The aim is to rank the reasonable priced wines – thus to give a useful guide for every winelover.
The annual wine festival at the Castle of Buda is a true festivity for winelovers, and also a tourist attraction since the UNESCO World Heritage site gives a stunning venue to the event, plus participants can enjoy Hungarian gastronomy, folk music and folk dance along with a huge selection of wines.
