Grevenmacher celebrated the 70th edition of its grape and wine festival over the weekend.
Among the festivities was the folkloric parade on 8 September, in which local and regional clubs, performance groups and vintners gathered to celebrate the town’s wine heritage.
The parade--during which candy and grape juice were passed out to little ones, wine and crémant to the adults--included around 40 floats and culminated with the float carrying 2019 wine queen Jessica Bastian.
Bastian, who was formally crowned the evening of 6 September, has said of her role, “It is a great honour, as the daughter of a wine maker, to represent Luxembourg’s vintners and their top quality products for a whole year both at home and abroad.”
The festival in Grevenmacher takes place each year on the second weekend of September.
