I thoroughly enjoyed Herbstfest in Schliengen last weekend. There were so many different kinds of homemade jams, jellies, spreads, cheese, breads, meats, and apple juice to try. There was also “new wine” which is newly fresh pressed wine not available in supermarkets, and of course gutedel (aka chasselas blanc), a popular wine in Markgräflerland. The fest was held at the Erste Markgräfler Winzergenossenschaft, which is the first and the oldest wine collective in Markgräflerland. It was founded in 1908 by local pastor Leonhard Müller together with 36 growers from the region.
