Wine Award 2017
The 15th International Wine Awards 2017 was a grandiose party celebrating zest for life and enjoyment held at Schloss Bensberg, to which the magazine ‘Der Feinschmecker’ was once again invited. The turnout was massive! Schloss Bensberg once again offered a breathtaking backdrop to give this extraordinary, elegant event the perfect setting.
International winegrowers were awarded prizes, wine legends were honoured for their life’s work, but newcomers of the year were also awarded this prize. The fashion designer, Guido Maria Kretschmer, was distinguished with an award for Wine Gourmet 2017 and you could feel how much joy this special award gave him. Barbara Schöneberger, who was responsible for the moderation of the event as every year, led the evening with her quick-wit and humour. After the awards ceremony, the culinary part of the evening began.
Our event lounge was once again a huge attraction for all guests. Participating jewellers were able to try on unusual jewellery along with their VIP guests, such as the ‘star of Bensberg’, a ring specially created for the event, while they were able to try on many new products and enjoy champagne.
The fireworks with musical accompaniment later on were once again an absolute highlight of the evening. After that, they continued to enjoy party music and tasty treats until the early hours of the morning.
