St Martin’s Day Wine Festival Budapest

The three day St Martin’s Day New Wine festival at Hotel Gellert in Buda is an absolutely heart warming event in chilly November in Budapest.

There are more St Martin’s Day Festivals in the city of Budapest (not to mention the numerous festivals all over Hungary) where the new wines are proudly presented. Many of the best, and most prestigious Hungarian wineries showcase their new wines at the festival held in Hotel Gellert Danubius.

St Martin’s Day Wine Festival – Hotel Gellert

As St Martin’s Day is on November 11, the annual New Wine Festival in Budapest is at the weekend closest to November 11 each year. In the elegant but friendly atmosphere of the spa and wellness focussed Hotel Gellert (built together with the Gellert Spa), you can try the newly made Hungarian wines (or even take a relaxing bath at one of the best Budapest baths, in the Gellert Baths).

There are excellent new wines, delicious meals, a merry wine loving company of locals and foreigners, and good atmosphere.

The daily tickets to the New Wine Festival are quite reasonable (approx. HUF 2,990 for a daily pass with a glass and a wine coupon).
