Wines and Crémants: Maacher Wäimoart 2016

See and taste the 2015 vintage

01-waimoartHere it is again! Spring has arrived, time of flavours and (re)discovery, time, in other words, to sample the results of last year's vintage for the first time. Thus, the 2016 edition of the Wäimoart, Grevenmacher's wine market, invites you to taste the knowledge and mastery of the Luxembourgish vintners, who grasp the occasion to present their ultimate creations to the public.

The 86th edition of Wäimoart will take place on 1 April 2016 at the CUltural and Sports Centre of Grevenmacher, capital of the Luxembourg Moselle (opening hours from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 4 to 9 p.m.). This vinicultural event has become a Moselle tradition which brings together beginners, amateurs and professional oenologists every year for a sampling of a large selection of last year's vintages of the Luxembourg Moselle.

Samplings to your taste!

For a mere five euros, every visitor can arm himself with a wineglass, and thus equipped can explore the cellars of the region, united under one roof. The selection includes white, rosé and red wines of all grape varieties, as well as straw wines and ice wines from the 2015 vintage.

This event is also an occasion on which visitors can meet the vintners in person, in a joyful atmosphere, and converse about the quality of wine, wines in Luxembourg and life in general.

Please note that free buses run between the villages of Grevenmacher and Wormeldange, Remich and Schengen.
