Our Company in Numbers
As an event organizing company for two decades now, we have been working for the development of Hungarian wine culture, the strengthening of the domestic wine trade, and for increasing the international popularity of Hungarian wines. Since the foundation of Budapest Wine Festival - the first national wine festival in the country - in 1992, the range of our activities has been continuously widening with services provided both to winelovers and winemakers.
Our major event to date, Budapest Wine Festival attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the Buda Castle from all over the world, and it is a unique festival even by European standards. We believe that the combination of the world heritage setting, and the assortment of premium local wines can greatly contribute to the acknowledgment of Hungarian wines in the world market and to a more pronounced image of the country as a popular travel destination.
Our other wine festival, Rosalia Festival, has also emerged as one of the favorite events in the pre-summer season and attracts 30 000 people. Every year in May, it is a close-to-complete line-up of rosé and sparkling wines that ensure an easy-going, graceful atmosphere under the trees of the City Park in Budapest.
Besides our open-air festivals, we are proud of VinAgora International Wine Competition, the largest and the only international competition of Hungary, that we have been organizing for more than twenty years.
A popular service provided to Hungarian winemakers is our aid in managing the application and sample delivery processes to all major international wine competitions. Also, upon request, and based on assortment tasting we make suggestions about which competition to apply to with which wines.
Thanks to our general director, Zilai Zoltán, who is also the President of the Hungarian Wine Academy, Borkult cooperates in numerous professional events of the Academy as its official secretariat.
