The Winter Etyek Picnic, which began seven years ago, has covered four seasons so far. Despite the cold weather, many attend the event to watch a traditional pig slaughter, enjoy a pig roast, taste mulled wine and other gastronomic delights.
Etyek is the home of Hungarian champagne, the residents of the town in Veszprem County have been trying to preserve this 130-year-old tradition since the József Törley era. The Winter Picnic does just that!
During the popular event, more and more local products are introduced each year. Beside the wineries in Etyek, there will be winemakers showcased from other settlements in the local wine region, along with the best-known wineries from Villány, Tokaj and Szekszárd, as well as a representative from the Ménes-Hegyalja in Arad.
The event will take place on January 18 in Etyek. For a detailed program, visit the official website here.
