Inthronement of the wine queen Marilen I
The Main metropolis has its own vineyard with the Lohrberger Hang, the 1.3-hectare vineyard is one of the easternmost foothills of the Rheingau. After all, the city owns its own vineyard, which is already over 200 years old and produces the famous Riesling “Frankfurter Lohrberger Hang“. Now, following the announcement of the new “Frankfurt-Rheingau-Rieslingroute“ last year, a wine queen has also been officially chosen.
„The winegrowers of the Rheingauer Weinbauverband and our tourism manager Thomas Feda convinced me“, said Lord Mayor Feldmann. “It's finally time for Frankfurt to have a wine queen like other wine towns. Marilen I is a competent ambassador for Frankfurt Riesling, local winegrowing and our successful tourism, the Lord Mayor explains the initiative of Tourismus+Congress GmbH (TCF).
The Rheingau wine queen Stephanie Kopietz crowned Marilen Maul on Monday, 23 January, in the presence of Feldmann and Fedas at the municipal winery. The first Frankfurt Wine Queen wears on her head a specially designed shimmering gold crown symbolizing the Frankfurt city silhouette.
Marilen I will participate in numerous TCF events throughout the year. “We have found in her an enthusiasm that will positively promote the Main metropolis, the region and the wine“, Thomas Feda is sure. She will appear at trade fairs, visit the International Tourism Exchange in Berlin or Frankfurt Festivals right at the beginning of her term of office. “On the occasion of the Rheingau Wine Market, our new Wine Queen opens the festival“ with her “colleagues“ from the other Rheingau regions, according to Feda.
The Rheingau Wine Queen is happy about the growth. “Frankfurt and the Rheingau belong together, the wine connects us“. A year of unique experiences, unforgettable moments and encounters awaits her colleague.
Marilen Maul is full of beans: “It is a great honour for me to be able to present Frankfurt and the Riesling“, says the 26-year-old law student. She will be committed to her office and also enjoy it, because wine is exciting and full of passion.
