Katrin Lang, a 23 years old Baden- Wurttemberg lady became the 74th German Wine Queen.
In the Saalbau, a jury and for the first time the audience chose Katrin Lang (22) as The German Wine Queen, Juliane Schafer (25), and Luise Bohme (23) as Wine Princess. From 1949 until 2021 a jury of 70 wine experts sets to choose The German Wine Queen but it
was the first time when the audience was allowed to vote to elect The German Wine Queen.
The German Wine Queen Selection
It was the first time when the audience was included in the selection of The Wine Queen. The jury made only a preliminary selection this year and for the final selection television program and live streams were allowed to choose the new wine queen from the best three candidates. More than 700 guests were invited to the selection hall and the rest of the audience voted by mobe phone, tablet, and laptop throughout the country using the voting tool meinSWR. The final selection was completed with the announcement of Katrin Lang’s name as The Queen and the other two runners Juliane Schfer and Lise Bohme both as The Wine Princess.
In the process to become the Queen the five candidates must have some of the qualities of a real wine queen in which to demonstrate quick-wittedness and identifying wine types in a blind tasting is the most important quality. Katrin Lang proved her ability by making quick recognition about blind taste. Mariella Cramer and Sophia Hanke did not make it into the top three.
