Highlights of wine culture
In 2010 the German Wine Institute (DWI) gave the awards ´Highlights of wine culture´. These are awards for special places which reveal history and tradition, results of wine-growing and the cultural asset wine.
We want to sensitize people to our cultural asset wine and to fill them with enthusiasm in order to come to the wine region and to see and experience what wine-growing along Saale-Unstrut means.
Germany is a wine country with an over two thousand year old wine culture that has left its marks on people and landscape. The highlights of the wine culture are living contemporary witnesses which offer exciting refuges for tourists.
Along Saale-Unstrut were awarded:
• Steinernes Bilderbuch – Albumblätter für den Wein (Album pictures for wine)
• Rotkäppchen Sektkellerei - 150 years of sparkling wine history with cuveé barrel
• Historic vineyard cottages along Saale-Unstrut – Ensemble Schweigenberg
