Taking place from 15th to 18th August, this year's edition of Wine Shine Bénye (Bor, Mámor, Bénye in HU) appeared to be rather quiet and less of a success than in previous years, however, this was only due to the fact that the organisers had decided to schedule concerts further apart for a more even distribution of visitors between the more than a dozen venues in the village. In fact, there was a considerable increase in turnout from last year; yet, the new scheduling helped maintain the familiar and laid-back atmosphere that had been the hallmark of Wine Shine Bénye from the outset in 2009.

Apart from musical concerts, there was also a more-than-average number of literary performances taking place on the makeshift stages in the gardens of the thirteen participating wineries, and tickets to the various themed tastings had been sold out well in advance.
