After the Freiburg Wine Festival could not take place in the past two years due to the corona pandemic, this year visitors can again look forward to a large selection of high-quality wines and sparkling wines as well as culinary specialties from all locations in southern Baden in front of the historic backdrop of the cathedral. The participating winegrowers will be divided into ten different areas: the Markgräfler wineries and winegrowers’ cooperatives, the Baden winegrowers’ cellar, the Freiburg wineries, the Batzenberg/Schönberg wineries, the Kaiserstuhl winegrowers’ cooperatives, the Pinot generation, the Tuniberger winegrowers’ cooperative, the Breisgau winegrowers’ cooperative, and the Freiburg Foundation Winery and the Alte Wache – House of Badische Weine GmbH. Different dishes are also offered in each area. The new restaurateurs are the Lichtblick restaurant, the Heiliggeist Stüble, the Schwab fishery, the Zum Bunten Onkel restaurant, the Das Blümchen restaurant and the Eismanufaktur from Freiburg, as well as the Hartmann butcher from Schallstadt and the Reichenbach butcher from the Glottertal.
The Freiburg Wine Festival will be opened on Thursday, June 30 at 6:00 p.m. in front of the historic department store by Mayor Stefan Breiter and FWTM Managing Director Hanna Böhme. Traditionally, the newly elected Baden wine sovereigns are presented to the public as part of the opening ceremony. This year, visitors will again be offered a varied music program at the Generation Pinot, the Alte Wache, the Stiftungsweingut and the Badischer Winzerkeller, which will be designed by various bands and DJs. Among others, Martin Mingres, kamida and Maria Kofler will perform with sax’n more.
“With the Freiburg Wine Festival, a bit of normality is returning to the heart of Freiburg. At the same time, we share the worries and fears of the citizens of our partner city Lviv and would like to send another sign of solidarity with the donation,” said Mayor Breiter.
With every wine glass that is sold at the Freiburg Wine Festival for 3 euros each, 10 cents are donated to the Münsterbauverein for the preservation of the Freiburg Minster and 40 cents to Freiburg’s partner city Lviv. In order to protect the environment, a bottle deposit of 1 euro has been charged on wine bottles at the Freiburg Wine Festival since 2019. In order to keep waiting times as short as possible, the bottles can be handed in at all beverage stands.
The Freiburg Wine Festival is open on Thursday and Sunday to Tuesday from 5 p.m. to midnight and on Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Admission is free.
