Outstanding vinotheks awarded in 2021!
The German Wine Institute (DWI) announced the winners of its "Outstanding Vinotheks 2021" competition on September 29, 2021 in Ingelheim. 30 award winners from nine German growing regions received the certificates from German Wine Queen Sina Erdrich and DWI Managing Director Monika Reule. In 2016 the German Wine Institute (DWI) already issued 50 awards for outstanding vinotheks from the 13 German wine growing regions. We present all award-winning vinotheks here, filterable by year of award and wine growing region.
In addition, the Award-winning Vinotheques 2021 are also available in short videos on the DWI's YouTube channel.
