1,300 hectares of vineyards grow on the slopes of the Moselle river and its tributaries. On their basis, Luxembourg's vintners create wines and crémants (sparkling wines) under the label 'Moselle luxembourgeoise – appellation contrôlée' .

Autumn is also a period of celebrations and festivals, especially in the Moselle region. Like here in Grevenmacher, grape and wine festivals bring together thousands of people from everywhere in the Greater Region to celebrate the expertise of Luxembourg's vintners. This includes float parades and, of course, the crowning of a wine queen.

'Trauliicht' is one of the ancestors of Halloween which only appeared in the US in the 19th century. A beet, a candle and a scary grimasse, that's how you "scare" spirits (and young women) in the Oesling villages.
