Wine Wednesday

5, 12, 19, 25 July, 2017

18.00-22.00

 

with colours in focus

 

The Hungarian National Gallery and the Vasarely Museum for the first time welcome visitors for four Wine Wednesdays in July in a unique location with a breath-taking view over the city and the Zichy castle’s garden accompanied by exciting wines, guided tours, lectures and concerts. 

 

This year’s Wine Wednesdays are themed according to colours. And what else comes more naturally when you hear the word ’colour’ than painting! Four Wednesdays, four colours and four lectures about painting: the brilliant reds in Munkácsy’s art, the fresh greens captivating viewers in the age of Impressionism, the poetic blues at the turn of the century and the most varied associations evoked by yellow. And on top of it all, this summer four wineries managed by women will introduce their selections.
