2009 Breisgauer Weinfest
Emmendingen is the main centre within the Breisgau wine area. Weinland Breisgau arrange a wine festival in and around the town each August. It is an opportunity for the various wine growers within the region to showcase their product and for the townsfolk and visitors to enjoy the fruits of the vine in a relaxed and social atmosphere. There are roughly 30 stalls situated through the streets selling wine by the glass or bottle and trestle tables are set up on an ad hoc basis. Essentially a private visit by some members of the Twinning Association (including the webmaster, hence the photos!) these pictures will give visitors to the site an idea of the friendly way we are always greeted in our twin town and the fun to be had from drinking wine in pleasant, warm and sunny Emmendingen over the course of a weekend.
