Get your calendars ready because important dates are coming up. Although in recent years we have become accustomed to nothing being set in stone, it looks like the following events will definitely take place. Here is a non-exhaustive list of wine events for the second half of the year.

Balatonfüred Wine Week – Balaton Wine Region

5-28th August


When August comes, we need to experience the atmosphere of Balatonfüred Wine Week. This long-established event was created to celebrate the excellent wines of the Balatonfüred-Csopak Wine District in a fitting way. The winegrowers welcome guests for three weeks in their cosy wine booths on the Tagore promenade. Balatonfüred's most popular gastronomic festival offers 8-12 different wines per winery, with a total of around 300 wines to choose from.
