The traditional Freiburg wine festival had to be canceled for two years. Now there will be celebrations around the Münster for six days again. Proceeds also go to charity.
It is the 49th edition of the Freiburg Wine Festival, which opened early Thursday evening. For two years, the corona pandemic had prevented the traditional festival from being held. In ten different areas around the Minster, over 50 regional businesses offer more than 400 wines and sparkling wines.
Wine cooperatives and wineries present themselves
Some of the large winegrowers’ cooperatives from the Baden wine-growing region are represented, such as the Badische Winzerkeller from Breisach, the Roter Bur Glottertäler Winzer or the WG Britzingen. The Freiburg State Winery and many wineries, for example from the Kaiserstuhl or from the Markgräflerland, also offer wines and sparkling wines for tasting. The Pinot generation has its own focus. Gastronomic establishments offer culinary specialties, for example at a fish bar, there are antipasti, wraps or tarte flambée.
Sales proceeds also go to Ukraine
Part of the proceeds from the sale of the wine glasses will be donated to the Münsterbauverein and Freiburg’s Ukrainian sister city, Lviv. The Freiburg Wine Festival is organized by Freiburg Wirtschaft Touristik und Messe GmbH, in close cooperation with the winegrowing companies in Breisgau, Kaiserstuhl, Markgräflerland and around the Tuniberg. It runs up to and including Tuesday, July 5, 2022. The last Freiburg Wine Festival in 2019 was attended by a total of around 65,000 people.
