Dear Visitors,

As such, the information in the article serves information purposes only. The organisers reserve the right to cancel or postpone such events and programmes. Make sure to visit the events’ official website for the latest news.

The biggest celebration of gastronomy in the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture Programme, the Balaton Wine&Gourmet festival, will take place in Veszprém between the 29th of September and the 2nd of October. This four-day festival celebrating quality food and drink held in the unique setting of the Veszprém Valley will showcase the region's best restaurants and wineries, as well as offering professional workshops and master classes, and culinary specialities from two guest countries, Japan and Spain.

Aromas, flavours, and experiences in the shady, end-of-summer groves of the Veszprém Valley: the region's biggest ever culinary event, Balaton Wine&Gourmet, will take place from the 29th of September to the 2nd of October 2022.


Balaton Wine&Gourmet will showcase the culinary heritage, winemaking traditions, and increasingly exciting food culture of the Veszprém-Bakony-Balaton region, open to all who wish to immerse themselves in the local gastronomic culture for one or more days. Under the shady canopies on the banks of Séd River, near the ruins of a Jesuit church and garden built in the 18th century, Balaton Wine&Gourmet will take full advantage of the uniquely beautiful environment of the Veszprém Valley, bringing to its visitors a festival with a real sense of environmentally conscious, sustainable gastronomy and lifestyle. 

The culinary festival aims to fill a niche and create a tradition. It will bring the region's best and most exciting restaurants and wineries to present their diverse dishes to both domestic and foreign guests. Balaton Wine&Gourmet will also be the region's only 'terroir' wine festival, where all six Balaton wine regions and all wine trends - traditional, new-wave, biodynamic, and natural - will be represented.


In addition to local and domestic kitchens and wineries, the annual event will also invite nations that are significant players in the world of gastronomy and beverages, with Spanish and Japanese cuisines and beverages taking the limelight this year.


And alongside the many public events, there will also be stage shows, guided tastings and quality exhibitors, professional events, workshops, and master classes hosted by an exciting line-up of national and international experts, Michelin-starred chefs, and other invited experts.
