Day of the open winery

At a glance

Saxony’s winemakers and Strausswirtschaften invite you to the days of the open winery.

Tasting fine wines, hiking through vineyards, visiting wine cellars and listening to concerts: on the last weekend of August, about 50 winemakers, wineries and broom farms in the Saxon wine-growing region welcome guests to the 23rd days of the open winery. It is an opportunity to discover the diversity of Saxon wines and to get in touch with the winemakers. The anniversary of the “30 Years of Saxon Wine Road” gives the festival a special sparkle this year. With a “warm-up” the first wineries get ready for the weekend already Thursday and Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, the winemakers will guide interested visitors through their cellars and vineyards. More than half of the wineries are once again offering three-way wine tastings at a fixed price of eight euros. In addition, there are homemade meals and live music, and in many places there are also offers for children – from bouncy castle to tractor driving.

For the days of the open winery, the Verkehrsgesellschaft Meissen (VGM) will set up a shuttle service that runs from winery to winery. The special bus service runs on Saturdays and Sundays between Diesbar-Seußlitz, Meissen and Radebeul as well as between Radebeul and Cossebaude. The special ticket at the price of nine euros per day is available from the driving staff, in advance sales and at some VGM ticket machines.
