The grape and wine festival is a particular highlight in the Moselle region's calendar and the annual event was not to be missed at the weekend in Grevenmacher.

All the stops were pulled out for the weekend-long event celebration,  with the build-up the week before being particularly lively on social networks, whetting people's appetite.

So it was hardly surprising that thousands of visitors turned up in Grevenmacher for the celebration right through the weekend.

A varied programme of entertainment was on offer with a great atmosphere, alongside winetasting of course, including in particular, the "cuvée de la Reine 2015” on offer.

The highlight of Saturday's proceedings had to be the crowning of this year's wine queen. Roxann Hoffmann took the prestigious title from Muriel Schu. However the rest of the day was also entertaining with a showband parade and numerous concerts as the day went on, right up until the a fireworks display in the evening.

Sunday wasn't to be sniffed at either, with more wine and entertainment including a folklore parade at 3pm winding its way through Grevenmacher streets.

The Luxemburger Wort photographer was of course present to snap away in between sips of wine.
