Annual Wine MarketAugust 26th - 29th, 2010 and September 2nd - 5th, 2010
Every year Mainz’s Rosengarten (Rosengarten vacation rentals | Rosengarten travel guide) and Volkspark are the sites for the Wine Market, the last weekend in August and the first weekend in September. White wines and rosés from the previous year are offered as well as some reds as well as wines from earlier vintages. It’s a great chance to meet hundreds of vintners and thousands of other wine lovers, discover new wines and simply have fun on a fine summer day.
Mainz (Mainz vacation rentals | Mainz travel guide) boasts no fewer than eight major wine events starting in March with the Wine Tasting Days in Mz-Hechtsheim; the Sekt (sparkling wine) Fest in Mz-Hoefchen; and, Johannisnacht (Summer Solstice) in town in June; the Wine Fest im Kirchenstueck (Mz-Hechtsheim); the Wine Fest in Mz-Ebersheim; and, the Vine-blossom Fest in Mz-Laubenheim, all in July. Mainz-Hechtsheim hosts the Vintners‘ Days festival in September and the Rheinhessen Wine Forum takes place in October in Mainz’s Museum of Ancient Shipping.
As if all that were not enough, virtually every village in and around Mainz on both sides of the river celebrate wine festivals in Spring, Summer and Fall!
