Vince Day in the Villány Wine RegionFrom cellar to cellar...Variations on Vince Day!


It is an old tradition of winemakers to predict the richness of harvest based on the weather of Vince day and the condition of pruned Vince twigs. On this day winemakers were walking from one cellar to another blessing and tasting one another’s wine. They asked for God’s blessing on the stocks, and for security, even superstitious tricks were also used, following nature’s guidelines.

New variations on Vince Day! During the day the Villány Wine Region awaits you with LANE-VISITING VINCE, in the evening with DINING VINCE programmes. It is not a secret that the programme series leading from Tenkes-hegy across Siklós and Kisharsány to Villány is aimed to make Vince day a living, common wine region tradition again. Of course, together with You, our dear Guests!

During the LANE-VISITING VINCE programme we tour across (by bus) the Villány Wine Region, and receive traditional Vince day blessing. Those coming with us get to know three wineries, fine wines and have lots of experiences.
