It's at this time of year that the vineyards are at their best - the bunches of grapes are tinted and ripe. From mid-September to mid-October, the winegrowers and the "Herrschtleit", the Luxembourg word for seasonal workers, get down to harvesting.
Tradition dictates - the tasting of Fiederwäissen, the bourru wine still undergoing alcoholic fermentation, accompanied by an onion tart.
Moselle winegrowers are expecting a good 2023 vintage and some excellent wines and crémants.
Immerse yourself in Luci's stories and get to know our winegrowers and their daily work.

Don’t worry, for it is not the land that is burning, but rather the passion for good fruit brandies.
The distilleries of Luxembourg’s Moselle region invite you to their traditional festival called “D’Miselerland brennt!”, which is held in October.
A varied entertainment programme is offered, one that includes distilling demonstrations, tastings, guided tours, children’s activities, and of course culinary specialties at local distilleries.
Join in the fun of the great wine festivals and discover the passion that the “Miseler” (Mosellans) have for their heritage. Each year, they keep these traditions alive by gathering together in celebration, happy to share with you their culture of distilling wine, to the rhythm of the region’s classic and folk music.
Among the key festivals, the “Gréiwemaacher Drauwen - a Wäifest”, a yearly celebration of grapes and wines from Grevenmacher, attracts tourists by the thousands. This event sees the election of the new “Lëtzebuerger Wäikinnigin”, the Wine Queen of Luxembourg. Accompanied by her princesses, she parades through the town streets, accompanied by international music bands and dozens of richly decorated floats. Truly an unforgettable moment to share with your friends! One week later, the Riesling Queen’s coronation ceremony marks the start of the Riesling Open in Wormeldange.
Do you enjoy traditional celebrations? There are many more events on the agenda. In July, don’t miss the “Welleschter Kiermes”, Wellenstein’s funfair, and one of the most frequented ones in the country, or the “Éiner Wënzerdag”, a wine festival that takes place in the cultural and historical centre of the charming wine village of Ehnen. Many more festivals take place during August, September, and October.
