13 wine regions, 80 wine and tourism exhibitors, more than 600 wines and 3,150 wine-loving visitors

The "WeinTour" of the German Wine Institute (DWI) made its first stop in Essen. In the Grand Hall Zollverein at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Kokerei Zollverein, there were numerous wine tastings, valuable wine tourism information. Prominent speakers as well as the German Wine Queen Angelina Vogt and the German Wine Princess Julia Sophie Böcklen led through a diverse supporting programme over 2 days.

The entertaining wine and cooking shows focused on delicious wine-food pairings, presented by master sommelier Hendrik Thoma and TV taste hunter Moritz Crone-Rawe (Rolling Taste). Hiking expert Manuel Andrack drew the visitors' attention to the tourist advantages of the wine regions in "RegioWalks" and also presented the most beautiful hiking trails of various wine-growing regions in a 30-minute hiking show.

Virtual wine journey

Wine lovers in Essen were offered yet another experience: Using VR glasses and headphones, visitors were able to enjoy a 360-degree wine journey. The virtual roadshow through Germany's metropolitan regions has been delighting visitors for two years now. Further plans are already underway for Essen in 2020, so make a note of 24 and 25 October 2020, for more information visit:
