After the premiere of the Virtual WineTour with 8,500 participants last year, the German Wine Institute (DWI) is again inviting visitors to this digital wine and tourism event from 16 to 25 April 2021. It offers wine and travel enthusiasts the opportunity to be guided through Germany's wine-growing regions by renowned wine experts in 22 online tastings and to get to know 88 producers and their wines.
Wine professionals such as the Master of Wine Konstantin Baum, the President of the German Sommelier Union e.V. Peer Holm, the sommelier Toni Askitis from #asktoni, the German wine sovereigns Eva Lanzerath, Anna-Maria Löffler and Eva Müller as well as the hiking expert Manuel Andrack will lead through the programme of the WeinTour. Co-host Christoph Friedrich will provide the entertainment during the tastings.
During the online tastings, which last about an hour, participants learn about interesting developments in the German wine world. The topics range from "La vie en Rosé" to "Wanderlust" and "Aromatic all-rounders". Interaction with the experts is not limited to question and answer sessions. Participants are also invited to take part in quizzes via mobile phone in which they can put their wine knowledge to the test.
On virtual wine walks, Manuel Andrack presents four online presentations of wines typical of the region as well as interesting wine walks and reveals insider tips for tourists.
With each tasting package of four 0.75-litre wine bottles, participants also receive a 50-ml tasting bottle of each wine free of charge. This allows them to leave the large bottles unopened and store them for later. The wine packages are available at a price of 39.90 € incl. shipping costs on the WeinTour platform. There you can also see the complete programme with an overview of the themes and the exact times.
The wein.plus partner company Wein-Plus Solutions in Munich organises the entire digital technology, the small sample bottles and the wine.tour programme.
