Viticulture an oenology competition and conference
The professional competition and conference entitled „Eszterházy Károly Viticulture and Oenology Days” was organized in Eger 15-16 February 2016.

 

The competition of viticulture and oenology secondary school students was organized first time this year. The participants arrived from 6 different schools of 5 towns. The patron of the competition held on 15 February was István Román, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Agricultural Vocational Training. Most of the tasks tested the practical knowledge of the participants, they included, for examples, the following topics: pruning, oenology technologies, laboratory investigations and sensory evaluation of wines.

 

 

The winner was the team called „Bull's Blood of Eger" from the Eger Training Centre – Trade, Agriculture and Catering Trade School. The students of the Petőfi Sándor Grammar School and Horticulture Vocational School in Kiskőrös and that of the Teleki Zsigmond Horticulture Vocational School also finished in the first 3 places.

 

A viticulture and oenology conference was organized on the 2nd day of the event. The programme included presentations about novel European innovative cooperation projects to ensure the sustainability of vine-growing; grapevine wood diseases and prevention and treatment techniques; and funding options for enterprises of the sector.

 

 

The programme was ended by a wine-tasting in the evening, where the participants of the conference could taste wines from the Bükk, Mátra, Tokaj and Eger wine regions.

 

The event seemed to be fairly popular – it was visited by 223 guests altogether, therefore, the organizers hope that the "Eszterházy Károly Viticulture and Oenology Days" will become a traditional annual event including a professional competition and conference as well.
