Before this year's election of the German Wine Queen, all applicants met in August for a preparatory seminar organized by the German Wine Institute (DWI) in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse.

In 2021 the eleven applicants come from eleven of the 13 growing regions. The candidates from Franconia and Saxony do not take part in the election due to an extended term of office or for personal reasons.

Media and communications training

A central component of the three-day workshop is a media and communication training in which the young professionals receive valuable hints for a TV and stage appearance. This year, too, the preliminary decision can be followed live on the Internet on September 18th and the final can be watched live on SWR television on September 24th (follow live stream that day via as well as ).

English questions important part of preliminary decision

The workshop also includes style advice and a photo shoot. A crash course "English for Winequeens" prepares the candidates for the English questions that are an important part of the subject-related preliminary decision every year.

SWR staff used the opportunity of the preparatory seminar to provide information about the broadcasting concept for the election events. In addition, the incumbent German Wine Queen Eva Lanzerath gave helpful suggestions for the upcoming election. SWR presenter Holger Wienpahl, who will be hosting the election events again this year, is also looking forward to getting to know the candidates personally in advance.
