Viticulture museum exibits wine crowns from 1949 to 2015

04/11/2016

The re-opening of Germany's viticulture museum in the wine growing city of Oppenheim is being highlighted by a special attraction: besides other wine cultural exibits, crowns of all 'German Wine Majesties' between 1949 and 2015 are showcased.


The opening-event (april 9th 2016) by Thomas Griese, undersecretary of the State of Rheinland-Pfalz, the President of Germany's wine federation, Norbert Weber, as well as current Federal Wine Princess Katharina Fladung.

The German Wine Institute (DWI, i.e. Wines of Germany) which arranges the annual election of the branches first media representative, "Deutsche Weinkönigin", permanently loans out the crowns to the museum.

It was only last year that the DWI after 15 years replaced the crowns for GErmany's Wine Queen as well as for her two wine princesses with a call for bids amoung jewelers. ("making of"-video)


The online-gallery of Germany's past Wine Queens is one of the highly frequented contents of the respective website that showcases some of her global activities as ambassador of German wines.
