In accordance with old traditions, vineyard owners forecast the harvest from the weather on Vince Day and the condition of freshly cut vine-shoots (“Vince-vessző”). On this day they visited each other’s cellars, toasted on each other and tasted their wines. They asked God to bless the vines and, to be on the safe side, they employ hocus-pocus tricks, following nature’s guidelines.
They revived old traditions related to the Protector of Wines, Saint Vince in 2008, in the Vylyan vineyard. As a result, in 2014 several winemakers walk along the fantastic hills of the region, visiting the cellars and tasting wines.
