Wine Tasting with the German Wine Princess Sabine Wagner at the German Wine Society in Washington DC, US
Wine Majesties have a long tradition in Germany. Basically all wine villages, wine regions and the country as a whole have wine queens and wine princesses. Of course, the crème de la crème are the national wine majesties, the German Wine Queen and the two German Wine Princesses.
One of the two reigning German Wine Princesses, Sabine Wagner, came to the US for an East Coast Tour (Northern Virginia, Philadelphia and Washington DC) with a series of events between June 25 and June 30, 2014. The trip was organized by Annette Schiller (Ombiasy PR and WineTours) and supported by the German Wine Institute (Mainz, Germany) and the German Wine Society (Washington DC Chapter).
I have already provided an overview about the tour, here: German Wine Princess Sabine Wagner on US East Coast Tour, US/Germany
This posting focuses on one event, the tasting with the German Wine Society (Washington DC Chapter) in Washington DC on Friday, June 27, 2014, 7:30pm. For other postings concentrating on one event of the tour see below.
US East Coast Tour of German Wine Princess Sabine Wagner
Annette Schiller: This was a fabulous week for German wine. Many of you participated in one or several of the events with Sabine Wagner, the reigning German wine princess. Sent by the German Wine Institute as ambassador for German wine she was here to promote German wine. Ombiasy PR and WineTours organized tastings, wine pairing dinners, classes, and a BYOW party at our house. I think we all learned a lot from Sabine’s presentations on German wine in general, on the new classification for German wine, and on the rigorous knowledge competition throughout several years to become the National Ambassador for German wine. Sabine showed us wines from entry level to ultra-premium level, and from bone dry to sweet. It was a showcase of what serious German winemakers are capable of producing.

German Wine Tasting with the German Wine Princess Sabine Wagner
In the last week of June, the German Wine Princess Sabine Wagner will be in the Washington DC area. We are honored and thrilled that she plans to pay the German Wine Society a visit.
Christian Schiller: Please join us Friday, June, 27, at 7:30 p.m. for our tasting at the Harbor Square Club Room. Marilyn Scarbrough has graciously reserved this venue in her apartment complex on the waterfront in Southwest Washington, near Arena Stage and Fort McNair.
Sabine Wagner: I am currently a student at Geisenheim University, studying international wine business for three years. In September 2013, I became one of two German Wine Princesses for a year. In that position, I am an ambassador for German wine and winemakers, in Germany and abroad, sponsored by the German Wine Institute.
It all started 5 years ago when Sabine became one of the two Wine Princesses of her hometown Hochheim in the Rheingau. From there, the way was only upward: She became Wine Queen of Hochheim in 2011, (regional) Wine Queen of the Rheingau in 2012 and (national) German Wine Princess in 2013.
Sabine Wagner plans to talk about recent trends in German wine, the culture of Wine Queens and Princesses in Germany, student life at a wine university, her recent trip to China as a German Wine Ambassador, and she will talk about the following wines. We will also have some snacks to go with the wines.
