Award-winning Landmarks of Wine Culture


This year, the German Wine Institute (DWI) has honoured 14 new landmarks of wine culture from almost all winegrowing regions.

This is the third time that the DWI has presented these awards, following on from 2010 and 2013, with the aim of raising public awareness of wine cultural diversity in Germany as a wine country, as well as contributing to the promotion of domestic wine tourism. "The newly awarded landmarks express the wine culture of the respective regions in a special way and are intended to serve as attractive destinations, especially for tourists interested in culture," explained DWI Managing Director Monika Reule at the award ceremony in Bernkastel-Kues.

Diverse Selection

An independent jury of experts from the fields of tourism, history, culture and wine selected the award-winning landmarks of wine culture 2022 from more than 50 proposals submitted by regional wine promotion agencies. The selection, made after extensive discussions, is extremely varied this year. It ranges from grand vineyard landscapes to monuments to wineries with an exceptional heritage of wine culture and encompasses eleven wine-growing regions.
