Durbach (dpa / lsw) – The outgoing German wine queen Sina Erdrich wants to continue to support the industry in the future. “After my studies, I would like to find the interface to the world of wine,” said the educational scientist of the German Press Agency in her Baden hometown of Durbach (Ortenaukreis). There are already ideas: “Training for sommeliers, e-learning for retailers, maybe even a job in an association,” added the 25-year-old.
On Friday next week (September 30th) Erdrich’s successor is to be chosen in Neustadt an der Weinstraße. For the first time in the more than 70-year history of the wine queen, the public can then have a say.
According to Erdrich, he is not afraid to say “what is needed in the industry”, even in front of members of the Bundestag. She sees herself as a marketing woman and at the same time as a spokeswoman for the wine industry. “I don’t just want the appreciation of consumers, but also of politicians for agriculture and especially for viticulture.” The German Wine Queen has existed since 1949.
