Wine Festival at Unkel
6th September 2009
The wine festival, which originates in an
ancient Roman tradition and has been kept
alive ever since, is a typical event of the
Rhineland displaying joy of living in a general
atmosphere of friendliness and well-being.
A wine festival is an expression of relief after
the strenuous work in the vineyards on the
steep slopes of the Rhine valley and the
weather risks involved in our northern
latitudes. All the greater is the joy when the
harvest is brought in. It also reflects the
cheerfulness and sociable nature of the
"Rheinländer". Neighbours and friends join in
the traditional festivities, singing, dancing and
drinking together.
Every year one of the winegrowers daughters
is crowned "Wine Queen". As the centre of
social life she is regarded as symbol of a
successful harvest and personification of love
for the beautiful Rhineland area. Her
counterpart is often the "God of Wines", in the
tradition of the Roman God Bacchus, who
relishes wine and radiates happiness.
