Visitors to the 7th VinCE Budapest Wine Show – to be held between 3 and 5 of March in Hotel Corinthia – will have the opportunity to taste 1000 wines from 182 cellars all over the world.
The opening day on Thursday will be reserved for the trade, for professional gastronomists. On the following days standing wine tasting and professional presentations will be available to the general public – the number of tickets will be significantly limited.
Almost every major Hungarian wine cellar will be represented, including several new exhibitors from Hungary. An exceptionally large number of foreign winemakers will arrive from Slovenia to Italy and from Austria to Turkey.
The VinCE Budapest shop will be a novelty in purchasing wine. Items introduced on the standing tasting will be available over a period of a couple of days using a new app. In addition, part of the ticket price can be used in the online shop.
A separate “route” will be established to reach organic producers. Visitors along this route will receive special gifts. In a separate room a wine dispenser and preserver system, operated by smart phones, will be available for testing.
Most of the guests are looking forward to participate in master courses and workshops to be held in VinCE Budapest. Special items of the Mumm Champagne House – official supplier to Forma-1 – will be presented by Thomas Lignier master head of the cellar. In everything goes as planned, Veuve Cliquot from Champagne will bring wines to be used for making champagnes. György Márkus will offer a tasting of surprises from the world of champagnes. A separate master course will be devoted to Tokaj champagnes. Spanish cellars will present traditionally fermented products during a lecture on cava.
Wine regions from the state of Washington will also be introduced. The route of Alexander the Great will be followed by local wines presented by Elisabeth Gabay Master of Wine (MW); among others, wines from Greece, Israel, Cyprus, Turkey and India will be available for tasting. The master course on Cabernet Franc will offer a domestic and international review of this widely known wine.
Presentation by Nick Adams MW and Adam Pawlowski Master Sommelier (M) will show how to compile a perfect wine list. Anne McHale MW will introduce one of the most exciting wine region in France, the Rhone-valley.
Courses will be held not only on wines and champagnes; a distillate will be presented by Guillaume Drouin master distiller, who will bring his variety of Calvados from Normandy.
In accordance with tradition, the VinCE awards will be presented on the closing day; best ideas and most inspiring examples which shape the domestic wine world will be honored.
