A weekend of wine, enchantment and friendship in a sparkling mood! Why witchy weekend? Historical sources tell us it was in Tarcal where, in 1100, the Hungarian king Coloman the Learned declared a law prohibiting the persecution of strigae – vampires or mares – because they “do not exist”.
This family-friendly fun weekend is based around folk culture, womanhood and, naturally, wine. Events are too numerous to list, so here is a taster for you. Tasting at the cellars, premiere of the Tarcal Wine, Tokaji sparkling wines plus talented wine women from the region and afar (Kunsági Kövidinka – Dimenzió Borászat, Szent György-hegyi Szürkebarát 2016 – Újvári Pince, Somlói Juhfark 2015 – Zsirai Pincészet, Szent György-hegyi Olaszrizling 2015 – Újvári Pince, Bükki “Világszép” gyöngyözőbor – Hetedhét Pince, Soproni Zweigelt 2015 – Luka Enikő, Villányi Gavallér 2012 – Zsirai Pincészet and Soproni Pinot Noir 2015 – Luka Enikő).
