Reader Feedback: Vinobranie is Slovak culture

Dear Editor,

I read your article about "Vinobranie" and I liked it very much ["Pezinok vintners bring on the burčiak for Vinobranie 2001" by Matthew J. Reynolds Volume 7, Number 35, September 17 - 23]. I went to Vinobranie last year and I was excited. It's all about drinking, eating, dancing and having a good time.

The way I see it, Vinobranie is a part of Slovak culture. There are also many musical performances and a funfair. Your article was interesting and while I was reading it I felt like I was there.
