A light drizzle did not dampen my spirits nor did I allow it to dilute the wine. Spent over five hours visiting the vendors, learning about the wide variety of grapes grown in Hungary. Met people from across the globe. Certainly wine is a unifying element of humanity! Met some gents from England, a retired couple from California, and a family from New Zealand. Everyone was having a lovely time. Along with the wines, the food was scrumptious. My favorite was the open-pit smoked salmon and the dark chocolate chili truffle. Portions from all the vendors were huge! I tried to capture the essence of the festive in photos, but you need to book a trip and experience this annual event for yourself. (Hotels book far in advance for this event, so plan ahead.)
Another amazing evening at the Budapest Wine Festival.
