Wine festivals are village events usually held in spring through late summer, arranged at local wineries or outdoors. Wine festivals are complemented with live music and traditional food, along with local wine and beer. On a Proufdag (tasting day) in May and June, each winery opens its cellars and organizes tastings of its latest seasonal wines. Villages along the Moselle river are the usual locations, and to celebrate a harvest sometimes the town’s fountains flow with wine. Grevenmacher and the Riesling Open in September are most popular.
