(drinks media wire) - This year, the German Wine Institute (DWI) and the regional wine marketing associations are for the first time granting an award of "Most beautiful wine view 2012" in each of the 13 German growing regions. These are viewpoints which offer especially spectacular views of the vineyards.
They range from the view of the Rotenfels rock on the Nahe river to the view from the vineyards of Lake Constance at Meersburg and the panoramic view of the Blütengrund in the Saale valley. The selection was made from 113 suggestions from the regions in a public vote on the DWI website.As DWI managing director Monika Reule explained at the presentation of the 13 wine views in Geisenheim/Rheingau, the aim of this project is to create innovative incentives for wine tourism in the wine growing regions. „Wine tourism is of increasing importance for creating added value in the wine making industry. The award-winning viewpoints are excellent places to visit for nature-loving wine connoisseurs who like to move around the wine regions on foot or by bicycle“, the DWI head added.
All of the „Most beautiful wine views“ will be clearly and visibly marked on site with an artistically designed three metre high stele (stone column) by the Mainz artist Ulrich Schreiber and will be officially inaugurated in each area in the course of this year. The very first inauguration of a wine view took place on 4th May 2012 in the Rheingau region at the Rothenbergkreuz in Geisenheim.
Comprehensive information on the award-winning viewpoints from all 13 wine growing regions including directions, maps, geo data and explanations about the viewpoints are listed on the DWI homepage at www.weinsichten.deutscheweine.de.
