VOLT, Balaton Sound, Sziget and Strand festival-goers will meet these great Kristinus cuvées and other Kristinus wines from even higher quality at all the bars on all festivals. The Kristinus Wine Estate - Sziget partnership was announced last week at a press conference held in Budapest where the wines were first presented to the public after they have won a wine region award from the South-Balaton Wine Region they are coming from.

The three exclusive Kristinus Sziget wines have won several awards in 2017. The Kristinus Sziget White has won a gold medal at the Balatonboglár Wine Region Wine Competition and silver medal at Hungarian National Wine Competition. The Kristinus Sziget Rosé and Red have won silver medals at the Balatonboglár Wine Region Wine Competition.

The cuvées’ back label texts sums up how Kristinus Wine Estate cheers festival goers to have a sip: “Decent Sound at Sziget and VOLT this year, right? Yep, as decent as the wines at Sziget-organised festivals: VOLT, Sound, Strand and Sziget. That’s what you have in hand: the wine of Sziget. Every drop contains: Balaton, Sziget, Strand, Sound, sunshine and VOLT. Do you know what you will drink next summer?”

Florian Zaruba, Kristinus Wine Estate Director said: „We are delighted to add fabulous wine from Lake Balaton to the amazing crowds who fill in the hundreds of thousands Hungary’s best festivals. For us the most important part of the terroir is the man who makes the wine; and these Hungarian men always knew how to party, trust me. Our mission is remains on the festivals too: to deliver the best Balaton wine moments possible wherever our customers are. And let’s make it official: it’s not a crime to make a fröccs or gespritzte from our wines adding soda water to cheer them up with bubbles, as it’s been done for a century in Hungary in the summer heat.”
