GERMANY (Würzburg) - Four dedicated, attractive young women have applied for the contest for the title of Franconian Wine Queen. They will be scored by the expert jury in Wuerzburg. The Wuerzburg Congress Center will be the location of the event that takes place on March 24, 2011. One thing is for sure: The fight for the crown will be very thrilling. The candidates will not make it easy for the jury to make a decision and that is why guests can prepare for an interesting competition and look forward to the four motivated candidates.


Last year's contest in Bad Kissingen even counted six candidates. Since Melanie Unsleber was elected German Wine Princess in October 2010, she will be representing German wine until October of this year.

The next ten weeks will mean tours, seminars and classes for the four candidates. Of course a lot of contact with the media will be part of that. After all, the 4 women have been active in the Franconian wine scene for quite a while: all four of them are or were wine princess of their region. Thus, tv appearances or performing in front of large audiences won't be a problem for any of the girls.

We are wishing the best of luck to all of the candidates - however - there can only be one 56th Franconian Wine Queen! One thing is for sure: Melanie Unsleber's successor can expect an interesting year full of new tasks and experience within the Franconian wine industry.(red.yoopress)
