Watch the event live: Innovating in wine tourism in the context of COVID-19.

Welcome to Mainz and Rheinhessen.
Due to the pandemic evolution, we have to announce the postponement of the Annual Conference. The dates in 2021 will be october 24th till october 29th! Then the Great Wine Capital Mainz | Rheinhessen invites you to discover our city and our region – and to celebrate wine culture with us!

Mainz, member of Great Wine Capitals since 2008 is bursting with culture and history, which is artfully blended within this vibrant city. The state capital of Rhineland-Palatinate is renowned for its Carnival and wine celebrations and famed for Johannes Gutenberg who introduced the printing press to Europe. Mainz is also the gateway to Germany’s largest wine-growing region – Rheinhessen with 26,500 hectares of vineyards, confined to the north and east by a great bend in the Rhine River.  Its wine makers are known for their innovation. And, of course, for their Riesling wines! The flavour of the Riesling grape is heavily influenced by the soil in which it is grown. It gives the wine a complexity due to its mouth-watering character and minerality.

Our  famous Riesling wine, the variety of pinot wines and our “wild card”, the Scheurebe grape, can be tasted in one of many famous wine bars around the city. The numerous taverns, wineries, wine shops, bars and restaurants of Mainz are also known for great food.

During our next International Annual Conference, you’ll be able to follow a program dedicated to wine, wine tourism and business development with several conferences, visits and tastings.
Join our program and you will feel like a local. You will get the chance to meet various winemakers, gastronomers, hoteliers and other professionals and potential partners during conferences, tastings and technical tours.

Save the date and discover how Mainz and Rheinhessen celebrate wine culture!
October 24-29, 2021
