Project Description

MID-AUGUST | The charming village of Erdőbénye (colloquially abbreviated to Bénye) has since 2009 been home to Wine, Shine, Bénye (Bor, Mámor, Bénye in HU), a two-and-a-half-day event that may well be the Tokaj region’s best wine and music festival. Makeshift stages and outdoor lounges in the gardens of over a dozen local wineries create the setting for the festival’s familiar and laid-back atmosphere, bringing the audience as close as possible to perfomers and winemakers alike. Genres range from early music to experimental folk jazz. Wines were, of course, on offer for tasting everywhere and vintners available for consultation to those interested in an insight into the grape-to-glass process.
