In the Grand Duchy, traditional grape and wine festivals are held in the months of August and September. From Grevenmacher to Remich, the Luxembourg Moselle goes into party mode for these two months. It's an opportunity to (re)discover the Luxembourg Wine Route.
The most important festivals in the next few weeks are:
- the 'Picadilly' wine and winegrowers' festival in Stadtbredimus (12 to 14 August);
- the 'Léiffrawëschdag' harvest festival in Greiveldange on 15 August;
- the 'Bacchusfest' (Bacchus festival) in Remich on 15 August;
- the 'Wäifescht' (wine festival) in Schwebsange on 4 and 5 September;
- the 'Drauwen- a Wäifest' (grape and wine festival) in Grevenmacher from 9 to 11 September;
- the 'Riesling Open' in Wormeldange, Ehnen, Ahn and Machtum from 16 to 18 September.
The Grand Duchy's vineyards stretch for 42 kilometres; they produce Elbling, Rivaner, Auxerrois, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as a number of sparkling wines. A good number of Luxembourg still and sparkling wines regularly win awards at international competitions.
