After a two-year journey, German wine culture has been awarded its certificate for UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. In an official certificate award ceremony that took place in Düsseldorf on November 18th, German viniculture was recognized alongside 19 other forms of cultural expression for its contribution. Unlike tangible heritage which is about architecture and physical sites, recognition is for people and their skills. It’s just one more reason to enjoy a glass of German wine!
