Spotlight on Germany's regional grape varieties


For the next two weeks from May 18, under the hashtag #regionalehelden (local heroes), the DWI will focus on the diversity of our local wines. Grape varieties are presented that are particularly characteristic of their respective region - including classics such as Lemberger and Trollinger from Württemberg, Elbling from the Mosel or Goldriesling from Sachsen.

Hashtag for the campaign period: #regionalehelden

For the next two weeks, wine lovers will find small films, videos from producers, facts and expert tips, as well as information and anecdotes about local specialties from the winegrowing regions, on the Instagram and Facebook channels of the German Wine Institute, Generation Riesling and the German Wine Queen. On the Ascension Weekend we will reveal how grill-friendly a Frühburgunder is and there is a new episode of "Crowned Kitchen" with mouth-watering recipes from our German wine sovereigns.

Of course, you can again test your newly acquired knowledge in entertaining quiz questions and go in the running to win exciting Sample Wine Packages with a Cookbook of the 13 Winegrowing Regions.

Royal online wine tasting for "Wine Saves Life e.V."

A special highlight is waiting for all wine lovers from May 27th to 29th at 7 p.m. on the Instagram channel of the German Wine Institute (DWI). Each evening over the three days, the German wine queen Angelina Vogt and the two German wine princesses Julia Böcklen and Carolin Hillenbrand will introduce four to five “local heroes” from the 13 winegrowing regions in a virtual wine tasting. If you want to taste the wine at home, you can still order the limited wine packages until midnight today (Monday). The DWI is donating the entire proceeds of the campaign to the aid organization "Wine Saves Life e.V.", whose patronage has been held by the incumbent German wine sovereigns since 2016.
