Egri Bikavér Ünnep
Date: 6–9 July 2017
Location: Érsek garden, Eger, Hungary
Type of event: outdoor wine festival
This festivity has been held annually for 20 years, and this 21st edition will be a genuine feast both for lovers of wines and gastronomy. The concept is simple and perfect: every Eger winery pairs with a local chef, who cooks his ideal dish for the Bikavér of the partner winery. Visitors stroll among the tents and taste Bikavér wines along with food to find the role of the wine in cuisine, and of course to enjoy. A wine and food example from last year’s edition:
- Egri Borvár Bikavér Superior 2013 by Ferenc Tóth
- Oxtail garnished with grape flavoured gnocchi and blue cheese by Zsálya Bistro, Eger
Stage programs and other activities, like tractor marching will entertain visitors (list of programmes is not updated yet). The festival admission is free of charge.
