Mór Wine Days this weekend
When the weekend starts on Thursday, it cannot be bad… Mór Wine Days, the annual festivity of the small Mór wine region takes place on 30 September – 3 October. The town of Mór turns into a buzzy fair with artisan delicacies and obviously with all the Mór cellars selling wines by the glass in the centre of the town.
The winemakers will pour their wines in Kapucinus square, visitors can taste the flagship variety of Mór, Ezerjó by many different producers.
Csetvei Cellar will also exhibit, as Krisztina Csetvei says: “It will be great to stand by the counter for a few days instead of standing by the grape press…”. At her booth visitors can taste Ezerjó from two different vintages, 2019 and 2020. She is the winemaker who loves experimenting, therefore she ages Ezerjó in amphora, in barrel and in stainless steel. Kistücsök, one of the best restaurants of Hungary on the South of Balaton created a mouth watering starter of goat cheese and beetroots to match with the amphora aged Ezerjó in their new menu.

Why not arriving in a horse-drawn carriage?
Mór Wine Days is a great occasion to see how people have celebrated the harvest for centuries. Folk dance, concerts, eating and drinking – grape growers deserve some fun after the hard work. And riding a horse-drawn carriage is also part of the fun! It should be booked in advance, and the “driver” can pick up visitors at their hotel door.
