Wine Square

Every September the city’s oldest square: Cathedral Square turns into Wine Square, a Wine Festival.

The Cathedral situated on the square was built about 100 years ago. It is the fourth largest church in Hungary. The towers are both 91m high. The square is surrounded by buildings of the University.

In the summer the square turns into a summer open air theather where musicals and operas are performed.

This was an exciting Wine Festival for me, because I actually got to taste wine. I haven’t been able to drink alcohol for about 2 years (TTC, Pregnancy, Breastfeeding). I tried 2 types of white wine both from the Tokaj Wine region. One of the wines I tasted was Kedves Cuvee 2012 (Nice Cuvee 2012) from the Tokajicum winery. It is a sweet wine, in the aroma you can discover apricots and dried figs and you can taste ripe pears. So it is a fruitfull sweet wine. Really yummy 🙂

 

Blackberry #1 is a real gourmet, he wanted to sniff my wine glass after I drank it:
