Ball of wine

The ball of wine was from the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter) for the first time in 2001 in the Electoral Palace in Mainz (Rhineland-Palatinate) carried out with 600 ball guests. Since 2003 the ball of the wine takes place in the Kurhaus Wiesbaden (Hessen). The guests are personalities from business, politics and public life, national and international winemakers, as well as visitors from all over Germany. The event on April 25, 2009 with around 1,500 guests was themed "Enjoying 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 musical entertainment was provided by the pop group "Die Prinzen", DJ John Jürgens and the Bundeswehr Big Band. Through the integration of the Mainzer Weinbörse, international journalists were present as guests. The ball of wine is considered the "German Wine Event". See also below wine Events,
