"Weinbergnacht" general information
The "Weinbergnacht" is an open-air-winetasting.
It is a special kind of event where people get to know wines by tasting a large variety in small amounts.
How to use the "Weinpass"
The "Weinpass" entitles the owner to taste up to 15 of the more than 70 wines that are offered. The "Weinpass" contains 15 small talons - each talon entitles its owner to taste one wine (0.05 litres). It is possible to get bigger amounts by spending more than one talon. The wines are served exclusively in the official glass with the imprint "Bad Dürkheimer Spitzenweine" which you obtain when purchasing the "Weinpass". So please keep it throughout your stay for the tasting. The wines are offered by 24 of Bad Dürkheim´s finest winegrowers in 14 locations on a 6km-long trail through the illuminated vineyards.
While stock lasts. Tickets are limited to 4.000 each night.
