Rheingau Wine Festival

29.08. – 07.09.2018

Rheingau winemakers annually come to Frankfurt to present their latest vintages at the "Freßgass'", the city's popular culinary mile and bustling pedestrian zone lined with restaurants, delicatessens and shops of every variety.

More than 600 red, white and sparkling wines from the famous Rheingau region are available for tasting at some 30 wine stalls, including everything from the finest vintages to light and fruity summer wines. Wines made from alternative grape varieties are also on offer, alongside the dominant Rheingau Rieslings. To complement this fabulous wine selection, the eateries of the Freßgass' traditionally offer accompanying cuisine at specially erected food stalls.

History of the Rheingau Wine Festival

The first Rheingau Wine Festival took place at the Freßgass' in 1978. Establishing the festival in Frankfurt's upmarket shopping area was a deliberate move, as the colloquial name of "Freßgass'" illustrates the street's tradition of being a place of Lucullan delights. The best place, therefore, for a festival presenting Rheingau red, white and sparkling wines!
