Budafok Champagne & Wine Festival, Budapest, 5 - 6 September
The XXII. district of Budapest, Budafok-Tétény, says goodbye to the summer with champagne and wine on the 5th and 6th of September, just like every year. The visitors can try a wide variety of the aforementioned beverages and different types of streetfood as well. What makes this year’s festival special is that the art section has widened with the exhibition of artist from the district who work in the fields of fine arts.

The festival represents millenary traditions. Many-many years ago, with the extraction of stone it became obvious that it would be perfect to store wine in the cellars.

Thanks to the practised keepers of Jenő Savoyai’s property, the culture of grapes and wine production started to flourish in the XVIII. century. Budafok became the centre of Hungary’s wine trade in the XIX. century.

The legendary figure of champagne production, József Törley, also started his factory there.
