“It’s a wine beauty contest, really!” Travelling to the wine capital city Mendoza at the beginning of March, I witness one of the largest events concerning beautiful girls & wine harvest celebration I have ever experienced in my life. When, how and where Las Reinas De La Vendimia are being nominated and selected has given rise to one big, amazing street festival celebrated each year during the wine harvest season at the beginning of March. Thanks to our wonderful team of Mendoza Turismo, I was able to soak it all up right there in front of the parade together with hoards of TV-journalists, news reporters and bloggers from all over the place such as myself – simply wow! It is an absolute “Must-See” & “Must-Do” experience to join the street parade of the Wine Queens representing each of Mendoza’s 17 wine growing areas – definitely not to be missed!
Electing the Wine Queen of Mendoza 2013: Visiting Gran Teatro Mágico de la Piedra y Vino
Dear friends, dear readers: I am truly impressed. And allow me to say that I have already had the pleasure of witnessing large, amazing concerts – Placebo in Paris with 50.000 people, Coldplay in Munich with 75.000 people, the opera Swan Lake in Moscow, the operetta Carmen in Vienna … but this unique combination of professional dancers spoiling us to musical, concert, opera, theatre, multimedia show, fireworks & beauty contest alike on a stage for almost 30.000 spectators has been truly overwhelming – never have I experienced anything quite like this in my whole life. Take a look at this …
It’s a great and amazing !
Thank you, Azhar! Hope you get to experience & celebrate at Mendoza Wine Festival, too!
