The Bingen Vintner Festival is an annual 11-day wine festival held in Bingen, Germany. Wineries from the region set up wine stands in the city center and are accompanied by food stands and live music. The festival winds through the old streets of Bingen, making this a fun festival for exploring the city while enjoying world class wines.
On the final Sunday of the festival, winemakers drive through the main street in a procession and give away wine free of charge. Don't expect great wine during the procession but the experience of seeing (and drinking) so much wine makes it worth checking it out. This is one of the longest wine festivals in this famous and picturesque wine region.
