This past weekend, we visited Budapest's biggest wine festival. It features Hungary's top wines which by the way are underrated in the wine world. On one hand, this underrated situation benefits us local wine drinkers, but of course for winemakers it is not a desired situation. Even more unfortunate, the wines that often make outside of Hungary are very poor quality.
Here are some photos...!
Festival takes place in Budapest's Castle District.
You can see the Daube River on the left here.
We joined our good friends Susan and Bill.
Hungarian sausage, mustard, bread and a pickle. Yum! This is a very basic and traditional meal in Hungary. Steven sometimes hits the local market for lunch and eats this meal. Cost = 600 HUF or about $3...and it is all freshly made.
Beautiful location for a wine festival!
As we waited for the bus, the Matthias Church stood beautifully by.
