Available: 7-8. November 2014.

Two days of merrriment at the Villány Bock Cellar! “He who eats not goose on Martin’s Day will starve, and who drinks not new wine will thirst,” goes the saying. Tradition is important, especially when associated with good wines and a feast to end all feasts!

Szent MártonThe New Wine celebration enjoys a long tradition in th Bock Cellar, and the merriments linked with it are now a happening known nationwide among wine-lovers. Thanks to the growing interest, this year the event will again be spread over two days.
After a Friday steeped in tradition and folk customs, we offer new items on the programme just as new wine refreshes every cellar’s assortment.
