The Rheingauer Weinwoche, commonly known as the Weinfest, is Europe's biggest wine festival, attracting more than ten million visitors per year over a ten-day run. At the annual festival, about 100 stands present the products of local winegrowers, accompanied by a variety of culinary specialties of the area. Germany's Rheingau district is a small but important wine-growing region, and its Rieslings are prized by wine connoisseurs.
Weisbadener Neroberg, a dry Riesling produced under the city's own label, is made at the nearby Eberbach Monastery. The vineyard on the Neroberg hill above Wiesbaden was originally planted in the 16th century, and handed down through the Prussian state to the city of Wiesbaden at the turn of the 20th century. The label has been in production since 2005. A bottle of limited production Neorberg Riesling makes a unique souvenir of your visit to Wiesbaden!
The Rheingauer Weinwoche takes place annually from the second Friday in August for ten consecutive days. Area vintners also offer tastings and wines for sale at Wiesbaden's weekly Saturday market from summer until late November.
