Ball of Wine

The ball of wine was from VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter) for the first time in 2001 in the Electoral Palace in Mainz (Rhineland-Palatinate) performed with 600 ball guests. The Ball of Wine has been held in the Kurhaus Wiesbaden (Hessen) since 2003. The guests are personalities from business, politics and public life, national and international winegrowers, as well as visitors from all over Germany. The event on April 25, 2009 with around 1,500 guests was themed "Enjoy the freedom" on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Wines and sparkling wines from all 13 German growing regions were presented and offered for tasting. The pop group "The Princes", DJ John Jürgens and the Bundeswehr Big Band provided musical entertainment. By integrating the Mainz Wine Exchange, international journalists were also present as guests. The Ball of Wine is considered the "German Wine Event". See also under wine Events,
