This year’s award for Art & Culture goes to the winery Weingut Wilmshof in Selzen. The winery Weingut Binzel has been family-run for generations and - apart from a commitment to winegrowing and a comprehensive offering of dining experiences centered around wine - is characterized by its holistic approach to the motto “Wein ist Kunst” (wine is art). The dedication to design of art lecturer and master winemaker Tobias Mohr is reflected by the extraordinary wine store and works of art. Lattice boxes that have been converted into wine racks provide the room with highly unusual, innovative aesthetics.
The Baburizza Museum during 2015 and 2016, has been location of different events that empower domestic wine industry. These activities have brought together more than 7,000 people during the period mentioned, and thanks to this, and the experience lived, where people enjoy the exquisiteness of wine and pictorial heritage museum, we have awarded first place in category "Art and Culture" of the #BestofWineTourism 2017. We thank the organization for this recognition, which gives us the desire to continue working to unite two captive tourist attractions in the city: wine and art.
