All Saints’ Merriment

Harvest has also been a time for celebration – and true merriment abounds for wine lovers as the stunning wineries of Boldogkeresztúr open their doors and arms to visitors for the 7th All Saints’ Merriment (Mindszent Havi Mulatság in Hu).

This attractive village with some of the best smaller winemakers (Füleky, Bott, Tokaj-Nobilis) stages a family-friendly wine event with live music, performances, crafts and a variety of tasting events in association with larger neighbours Dereszla and Patricius wineries. For the festival the “electric train” ferries visitors between venues, including to the top of the hill in Bodrogkersztúr – from where a wonderful view opens over the river Bodrog and its floodplain, the Bodrogköz.

A highlight of the festival is a visit to the first vinegar maker in the area; the Tokaj Wine Vinegar Manufactory has revived the Hungarian vinegar culture. As well as visiting the plant to follow the journey of Tokaji wine into vinegar, guests can also sample deliciacies created by respected chef, Viktor Segal. Of course, cuisine is a natural companion to wine, so local artisan producers of cheeses and jams also join the fun, as do restaurants.

Boldogkeresztúr is a centre for folk dance, and traditions are thriving here with a monthly táncház (‘dance house’) , where keen dancers gather with friends and family to dance the night away to live music. The dance house is the perfect way to end the merriment!

Autumn weather in the Tokaj wine region is generally pleasantly sunny, so All Saints’ Merriment is great for enjoying the last warm rays!
