It’s been almost a month now since we went to the Budapest International Wine Festival. This is the third time I have been, and it doesn’t get any less wonderful the more times that you go. Yes, of course, the wine is great. And yes, there is a certain lure of tasting wines that a lot of the world’s wine aficionados don’t even get a chance to taste. But the winning factor of this festival always seems to be a few simple things: Buda Castle, night, and the cool, harvest air of mid-September. It had been raining for almost 2 weeks so we held out as long as we could, actually changing our travel plans to Szeged so that we could make it to this event. It was definitely worth it. We had an amazing time and I’m so glad that my parents could finally experience what I had been giggling about for two years.
