TORONTO – April 1, 2017 – Despite what alot of people think, Germany is not all about beer. They are pretty darn good at wine too. In fact, Germany produces some of the finest wines worldwide – and that is something to celebrate. Wines this delicious deserve their own festival so for the month of April, head to the LCBO and experience why German wines are so unique.
Inspired by Oktoberfest, Wines of Germany created a festival around wine to celebrate the country’s deep history and tradition of high quality winemaking. April was a natural fit as Spring’s warmer temperatures bring friends and family together to share lighter meals, wine and camaraderie. Aprilfest celebrates the many styles of German wines – from dry and crisp to off-dry and fruity –  and are a perfect match for all types of cuisine. Browse to find a selection of German wines available at LCBO along with food pairings for your next Aprilfest gathering.
The other great part of Aprilfest is that you could win a Long Weekend in Germany! And with luxury Rimowa luggage to travel in style…Wunderbar! Enjoy a dramatic wine and culinary adventure in awe-inspiring Germany! This extraordinary trip includes a visit to historic Heidelberg, offering an unparalleled choice of culture and entertainment, hearty yet heavenly cuisine, and a picturesque setting. An unforgettable river cruise day trip to the Rhine Valley is included and finishes with a wine tasting and shopping stop at Rudesheim. For contest details visit
