A look back at 11 May 2019
“Celebrate Life” – Henkell celebrated Sparkling Wine Day:
The family event drew in thousands of visitors to the Wiesbaden winery
Sparkling party atmosphere
Henkell sparkling winery hosted its annual Sparkling Wine Day on 11 May, from 11.00 am until 7.00 pm, just in time for the start of Wiesbaden’s open air event season. The sparkling wine producer opened its doors to thousands of guests for lively party, under the banner “Celebrate Life”.
Insights into sparkling wine production
The variety-packed programme had something for everyone – old and young. The event's fascinating highlights included insights into traditional sparkling wine production on a tour of the winery. Guests on the winery tour marvelled at the historic Marble Hall and the traditional wine cellar, seven floors down. They also had the opportunity to look behind the scenes of the winery.
A day out for the whole family
Under the motto “Celebrate Life”, the festivities were accompanied by international singers and acts across all genres – from saxophone through percussion to drum performances – so there was no shortage of music for guests to enjoy amid the celebratory atmosphere. While Spielbank Wiesbaden kept adult guests entertained with blackjack or roulette “just for fun”, Henkell Sparkling Wine Day put on a fun programme with childcare for younger visitors. The urban train “THermine” was a big hit with families this year too, providing all kinds of information about Henkell sparkling winery on its tour through Biebrich. A variety of delicacies were available from the many food trucks for any guests who had worked up an appetite enjoying the varied programme. And a sparkling glass of Sekt or Cava etc. was not to be missed.
We would like to invite anyone who wasn’t able to make it to this year’s Sparkling Wine Day to come to one of our regular winery tours. In any case, Henkell sparkling winery will be opening its doors again next year for some exclusive insights into sparkling wine production.
