Haraszthy200 Festival

American-Hungarian history keeps track of Ágoston Haraszthy (1812-1869) as the first Hungarian to settle down in the USA and as the founding father of the viticulture in California. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Ágoston Haraszthy we are organizing a monumental event – ‘Haraszthy200 Festival’ - in California and in Hungary.
