Somló Juhfark Festival October 2023

Celebrate Juhfark with 14 winemakers on 21 October

Host: Tornai Winery, Somló

The unique grape of Somló, Juhfark deserves to be celebrated–it is capable of great wines reflecting the volcanic terroir and it can also elevate our weekdays with its crispy and refreshing acidity. Tickets are still available for the Saturday festivity.

Juhfark “Ünnep” is the Hungarian name of the whole day event on Saturday, and while it can be translated to “Festival”, “Ünnep”, the original word is slightly more solemn, more ceremonial. And when the world is torn apart, the length of the TV news is not enough to detail all the actual conflicts, it is high time to celebrate the community, the unity of individuals, the group of winemakers who join forces for the sake of a grape variety they believe in.
