Kékfrankos Most 2014
The most widespread blue grape variety in Hungary is the “kékfrankos”, which is grown verywhere with the exception of regions engaged only in making white wines. This is a very versatile grape variety, suitable for producing several types of red wines.

The “kékfrankos” is favored as the basis of rosé and siller wines; but also suitable for making light, fruity table wines or premium heavy reds with passing terroir characteristics. The events of “Kékfrankos MOST!” are aimed to represent this complexity.

The “Big Kékfrankos Wine Tasting”, to be held in the Boscolo Hotel Budapest, will be based on “kékfrankos” and will last all day. One of the most significant events of the day is the “Tasting on Foot”, to be held between 14:00 and 22:00. Over and above local visitors, the organizers invited guests from Austria too.

Visitors keen on learning more about this grape variety may participate in four master classes. Five winemakers from Szekszárd will present and compare their products. Dr. Gabriella Mészáros, international wine academic, will present an introductory lecture into the complex word of kékfrankos grape varieties. Franz Weninger, a winemaker from Burgerland, will present a lecture in English.
