The most beautiful wine festival in Europe
Budapest Wine Festival is a unique event that hosts hundreds of exhibitors and attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Buda Castle. The mesmerizing view on Hungary's capital, premium local and foreign wines, exciting professional and cultural programs, the devotion of winemakers, and the openness of visitors all contribute to the good reputation of the event. Nonetheless, the most important factor of success of Europe's most wonderful wine festival is constant development, and this is why we are striving to provide every year a bit more, and a little better.
