The "flood wine" relief campaign for wineries and restaurants in the disaster area on the Ahr river has raised more than three million euros by Friday, 7 August 2021. This was announced by the organisers. During the campaign, a total of 300,000 bottles of Ahr wine from flooded cellars will be offered for sale. Each bottle, no matter what quality level, is numbered. The winegrowers have deliberately not cleaned them beforehand, because this way each bottle is unique.
The campaign is an initiative of the Ahr restaurateur "Klebers Küche & Garten" in cooperation with Ahrwein e.V. and the specially founded non-profit association "Ahr - A wineregion needs Help for Rebuilding e.V."
