And although I've posted about the Boxbeutel before as well as other silly things like a wine bottle sandwich, or a wall of bottles or the Franconian cookie cutters, I'm not sure I ever mentioned that every year the local festivals and vineyards crown wine princesses!
And here's the really exciting part...(drum roll please), not only did I see many lovely princesses at the recent Sulzfeld wine fest, I met their queen!
Yes ladies and gentlemen, the queen (or Festkönigin) gave me this lovely signed postcard after asking me to sign her guest book. The royal escort even stopped to take a photo for me (check out my deranged crazy face...umm do you think I was excited?)
In any case a very fun and unexpected encounter with these beautiful ambassadors of the German wine industry!
