Wine Time: 14 Fantastic Grape Harvest Festivals.
Slide Nr 5
Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt. Bad Dürkheim, Germany. September. Think Oktoberfest, but for wine. This event, which boasts a 600-year tradition and claims to be the world’s biggest wine festival, offers a carnival-like atmosphere with rides, food stalls, fireworks and family-friendly games and activities. The main draw, however, are the giant tents in which hundreds of punters down regional wines and sing along to live music. Connoisseurs looking for a more sophisticated atmosphere can check out the Weindorf (Wine Village), with its fine wines, gourmet fare and Sunday jazz performances.
