HUNGARIAN VITI- AND VINICULTURE NONPROFIT LTD.
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.
In the past few years, our other wine festival, Rosalia, has also emerged as one of the favorite events in the pre-summer season. Every year in early 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 Gesztenyés garden in Buda.
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 twenty years. The public tasting event of the competition is the VinAgora Wine Gala held late June, where around thousand wine conoisseurs can compare their own judgement with that of the official jury.
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.
