Viticulture And Wine Festival- 22.Sept.2019
is one of the oldest spirits in human history. I had the chance to
participate in the wine festival celebration after the vintage in
Ahrweiler in the Rhine Valley, where Germany's finest wines are produced.
The preserved half-timbered
houses in the center of Ahrweiler are surrounded by medieval city walls.
Built in the 13th century, the medieval city walls were almost
completely preserved with its moats, gates and towers.
Ahrweiler is one of
the northernmost wine regions of Germany. The slopes of the city consist
of vineyards of wine. Ahrweiler wines are mostly red wines made from the
local Spätburgunder and Frühburgunder. Wine production and trade in
Ahrweiler has been going on for over 1000 years. There are many family
businesses in the city that deal with grapes and wine. In September, a
traditional annual wine festival is held in Ahrweiler, where the "Wine
Queen" is chosen. This is Ahr's largest and oldest festival.
