At long last the first large scale wine festival in Eger is to open its gates in July. This is a festival that offers so much more than just wines, visitors can indulge in a unique and complex experience with music, arts and gastronomy.
This is the fifth edition of VINO, a wine festival that has become one of the cornestones of Eger summer events. Between 21-25. July more than 20 wineries representing the wine region will set up their stalls at Dobó István square offering sparkling wines, frizzantes, light, fruity and refreshing wines but also more substantial, aged ones. Wine lovers can meet some of their favourite winemakers too.
„A lot of effort has gone into organizing this event, so for us it feels like a huge achievement to have reached the fifth edition of VINO wine festival. The idea was to create an elegant and classy event where it really is wine tasting that takes centerstage as this wine region means the world to us. It is great to see winemakers and winelovers coming together and having a good time while enjoying delicious food and good music. This is what we are striving for”, says György Lőrincz winemaker.
Meanwhile at various spots in the Eger city center a competition is going to take place among buskers. Different performers, different styles, different instruments, this kind of diversity sets the event apart from the usual concerts and contributes to a spirit of spontaneity guaranteed by the participating singers and bands. As an extra the Art Street Festival has also announced its participation at the event adding another layer to the diversity of VINO. There can be no doubt that many exciting works of art will be created on the streets of Eger during the festival.
„Eger wine filled the hearts of the defenders of the Eger castle with death-defying courage, so we can hardly wait to find out what it does to buskers”, says Zoltán Ábry, the organizer of the Buskers Contest.
