Wednesday Wish: Budapest, Hungary

We’ve shared some happening festivals that take place around the world this month.  Our “Wednesday Wish” is to be whisked away to Budapest to partake in the 22nd Budapest International Wine Festival, which commences today.  From humble beginnings to the most prestigious wine festival in all of Hungary, this attraction is much more than fermented grapes.  It fuses Hungarian traditions with modern entertainment, tastes of European foods – there’s a special competition dedicated to cheese – and a Wine University that imparts wisdom to those thirsty for perfecting their wine experiences .  Last year, over tens of thousands of sommeliers attended.  This year, even more will gather at the Buda Castle and sip in the streets (including us ;-)).  Great day to be in Eastern Europe.
