Rheingau Wine Festival
10 to 19 August 2018
For more than forty years, the Rheingau Wine Festival, originally introduced as a promotional event by the Rheingau winegrowers, has turned Wiesbaden's city centre into the "world's longest wine bar" – attracting thousands of visitors every year. Young wines, "Auslesen" (select harvests), and sparkling wines can be tasted at over a hundred stalls where winegrowers present their produce. Culinary treats to match the Rheingau Riesling wines are available on Schlossplatz, Dern'sches Gelände, and in the square in front of the Market Church in Wiesbaden. Numerous bands and shows provide a varied entertainment programme.
