To bid farewell to summer in a dignified fashion, mark the dates of 8-11 September in your diary, because that’s when the Budapest Wine Festival is being held for the 31st time. Amid the magnificent surroundings of Buda Castle, you can enjoy sparkling summer relaxation with numerous innovations, a sumptuous wine selection, culinary adventures and concerts.

The reconstruction of the courtyards at Buda Castle has reached a new stage, so guests can once again take their place around the original site of ​​the Wine Festival, together with the renovated Halászó children's fountain, the Savoy terrace and the rebuilt ramp leading to the Csikós Courtyard.

In addition to the domestic and international wine selection, almost the entire range of champagnes sold here will be available for tasting. This year, the Chef Market Gourmet Courtyard will be making its debut, where chefs from emblematic restaurants of Hungarian hospitality, in addition to their personal presence, await with freshly prepared specialities that also serve as the ideal accompaniment to the wine tasting.

This year, the United States is guest of honour, offering fantastic wines from California, Washington state and Oregon, which you can taste along with classic American dishes. The long-established aim of these expertly conceived events is to deepen the existing knowledge of wine lovers in an easy, fun way.

You can personally become acquainted with the lesser-known award-winning wineries in the VinAgora International Wine Competition, discover the outstanding products of international competitions and learn about new flavours and aromas in an informal fashion.

The two stages at the Wine Festival showcase more than 30 acts for music lovers who enjoy pop, jazz, blues, gospel, cumbia, funk, chansons and authentic folk music. Tárkány Művek, Los Orangutanes, Sena Dagadub and Canarro are among the performers who will be appearing.

A greater number of comfortable seats than before will cater to long-standing visitor needs and occasional overcrowding should be a thing of the past thanks to the introduction of tickets that must be used on a specific day.
