Wine festivals in Romantic Germany

The wine festivals in the regions around Rhine and Moselle are a pure pleasure, as diverse as the grapes that are grown and pressed here. Streets, lanes and squares are decorated, garlands of leaves and coloured ribbons bedeck the wine stalls. The air is full of music and the scent of wine. Often, there are colourful processions through the villages to celebrate the pleasure of wine and its traditions. Wine festivals may culminate in the crowning of wine princesses, queens or even Bacchus, the god of wine.
Below, we have put together a selection of wine festivals. Please use the event search on the right side for a detailed list of events.
