Wines from all 13 German growing regions
The foreign representatives can currently choose from over 40 wines and five sparkling wines of different grape varieties, flavors and quality levels from almost all growing regions (list, pdf document). A jury of experts assembled the collection after a secret tasting of more than 300 wines and sparkling wines submitted after an open call for entries.
DWI Managing Director Monika Reule is pleased that the offers relating to German wine as a cultural asset have been so well received by the diplomatic embassises abroad.
Young diplomats representing Germany's wine culture
The close contact with the Federal Foreign Offices (AA) inspires German embassies to take up the topic of viticulture as part of their own events and social media work, as the German Embassy in Italy, for example, has already done several times. Ambassador Viktor Elbling used DWI information videos (FB sample) to provide information about the German wine-growing regions with Italian subtitles (see tweet).
Last year, the German Wine Queen moderated wine-culinary events together with the German embassies in Montenegro and Kazakhstan.
The German Wine Institute (DWI) is always ready to advise employees in the worldwide foreign offices on specific wine related issues. Amoung other counselling work it organizes wine seminars, for example, as part of the attaché training.
