Taste Balaton in autumn as well – on 5 November in Veszprém
Lake Balaton recalls cherished memories of vacations not only for Hungarian people, but for many others, for example for citizens of the former East Germany, since for many families torn apart it was the only possible meeting point. However, the lake district aims to be much more than a summer tourist destination, thus there are several initiatives to attract attention to the 365-day merits of Lake Balaton. At this Balatonalmádi tasting visitors can taste wines from 25 wineries, like Feind Winery from Balatonfüred, Tornai Winery from Somló or Garamvári Vineyard from South Balaton – this latter one can boast 2 of the “Best Wines of Balaton”.
Date and time: 15.00–21.00, 5th November 2022
Venue: Pannónia Kulturális Központ, Városház tér 4., Balatonalmádi, Hungary
