Stuttgarter Weindorf visits the town of Hamburg

Only a few years after the first Weindorf in Stuttgart had taken place, the idea of a second one was born. Due to very good relations with Hamburg in the fields of tourism and city partnerships, Stuttgart exported its winefestival to the North of Germany in order to promote and show the Swabian way and lifestyle.

It has proven a great success and therefore Swabian wines and specialities are found in Hamburg, ever since 1986, once a year on the historical Rathausmarkt . Meanwhile, the citizens and vistors to Hamburg do not want to miss out Stuttgart’s visiting Weindorf anymore .In return the citizens of Stuttgart are looking forward to the traditional Hamburger Fishmarket presented on Stuttgart’s Karlsplatz once a year.

Whether in Stuttgart or Hamburg : the Weindorf enjoys a great popularity. One of the reasons for this surely is the fact, that every participating winegrower or traditionally – run family business creates his own culinary contribution, serving homemade fresh, Swabian specialities. The nicely decorated wooden open-air restaurants provide an unique ambiance and atmosphere.

Hamburger Stintfang – Germany’s northernmost vineyard

For the 10th anniversary of Stuttgart’s Weindorf in Hamburg the organizer, Pro Stuttgart e.V. and the Weindorf Innkeepers donated a real jewel to their Hamburg friends – a vineyard from Württemberg. On 50 vines the grapes for an extraordinary wine, the Hamburg Stintfang Cuvée, also called Hanse Primeur, are ripening. This wine is of such rarity, that it is only ever served on official occasions by the President of Hamburg’s citizenship.

After the grape-harvest at the end of autumn, Fritz Currle, one of the winegrowers, takes the grapes back to Stuttgart, where the wine process continues. Depending on the year and vintage approximately 200 bottles of the dry and light wine. are produced.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary the number of vines has been doubled.
