Wine Festivals*
I can’t help but wonder about the “festival of frogs” in Colmar and how that relates to wine.  Also note that though it is over this year, the Pálinka festival in Budapest is not really about the wine.  Hungarian wine is absolutely delicious, but Pálinka is not wine.  It is closer to Schnapps and very, very strong.This is a list of wine festivals throughout Europe sorted by country. I suggest finding the festival that you’re interested in either according to date or region, then using google or some other search engine to find more detailed information on that particular festival. Many might offer special evening events that are by ticket only and you will want to act on that quickly. Especially in Germany, many larger towns have their own webpages with English translations. Try entering the name of the town and adding “.de” to it. This sometimes works for other countries as well. Use “.fr” for France, “.at” for Austria, “.it” for Italy, and “.es” for Spain. Many of the entries come from the following resources:
