Midsummer Night will take place on 24 June this year, as it is called in Hungary: Szent Iván’s night. As it is the shortest night, there’s no use going to sleep, let’s celebrate instead.
Etyeki Kúria is situated in Etyek, near the capital, only a short drive from Budapest. Their next big thing is ChardonnÉJ on 24 June (the name of the event is a pun with the pronounciation of the famous grape and the Hungarian world ’éj’, which means ’night’), a great tasting event organized by Etyeki Kúria. You can taste still and sparkling Chardonnay wines from the host and from invited Hungarian wineries (like Babarczi from Pannonhalma, Gróf Buttler from Eger, Pajzos-Megyer and Sauska from Tokaj and many others). Of course there will be music accompanying this event, too: Random Trip, a formation with talented musicians and Juli Fábián, a wonderful singer with stunning voice.
Tickets: 9800 HUF (around 32 euros) and include the bus transfer from and to Budapest (however for the transfer you need to register in advance).
