19th International Wine Festival in Budapest

Between the 8th and 12th of September the terraces of the Buda Castle Palace in Budapest, Hungary, will host the 19th Budapest International Wine Festival.

International Wine Festival, Buda, 2010

The festival was founded by the Hungarian Viniculture Foundation, established in 1991. Representatives of different areas of viniculture, including training, professional associations, business federations and research, are on the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, which inspects VINICULTURE PBC’s work as both owner and managing body.

As raising the culture of production and consumption is only feasible together at the same time, VINICULTURE PBC operates primarily by organising events which promote the living connection between the product and the consumer in the spirit of high quality. Our work to reach our targets over the last decade has already brought numerous results.

The Budapest International Wine Wine Festival, held in 2010 for the 19th time, has become the sector’s biggest event and an outstanding festival in Budapest’s calendar.
