How many years have you participated in the Szeged Wine Festival as an exhibitor?

We first attended the festival in 2000, so this is our 25th year participating.

What is the first thing that comes to mind as an exhibitor about the festival?

The good atmosphere and the large wine-loving crowd, which often is not deterred by the rain from tasting.

What are your experiences with visitors compared to other festivals of a similar nature?

Szeged hosts one of the largest and longest wine festivals in which we participate regularly each year. It’s an extremely good cultural event that brings people together through wine and other programs, targeting a wider-than-average age group. The proportion of young people interested in wine is perhaps higher compared to other events of this kind. It is also different in that it attracts a diverse range of attendees, from complete novice wine drinkers to highly educated consumers and professionals.

What do you offer visitors? What wines can be tasted and bought at your stand?

We have brought a wide assortment, with a strong emphasis on lighter wines. Examples include Irsai Olivér, Cserszegi Fűszeres, Olívia Cuvée, Hajnal Cuvée, Generosa, Sauvignon Blanc, Rhine Riesling, Néró Rosé, and Rosé Cuvée. In addition to these, we also have some red wines and aged white wines, such as Kékfrankos, Kadarka, Cabernet Sauvignon-Franc, Ezerjó Selection, and our sparkling wine and Irsai sparkling wine.
