Rosé Fest in Villány
A Wine in Pink?
A rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method.
This Weekend Villány Turns Pink
Rosé wine is the base of the favourite festival drink named “rozéfröccs” (rosé and carbonated water), which can be made in various formations from “kisfröccs” to “házmester” (maybe we’ll give you a fröccs-guide later).
Villány is the most famous wine region in Hungary, located near to Pécs. This weekend they celebrate the rosé wine with a two day festival. There are some really good Hungarian bands performing a gig, there is a marathon run on Saturday (dress code: pink!), a day and a night hike, so you won’t be bored at all.
Practice your Hungarian language skills, read on the official site 🙂 (Sorry, no English version there.)
If you miss the last train back to Pécs, just call us and we’ll pick you up, and you can have a rest after a busy festival between the cool walls of the Ananas Hostel.
