The extraordinary German wine Princess -- Mara Walz


Germany’s “wine princesses” are the deputies of the German “wine queen,” who is selected each year to serve as the representative of German wineries in events around the world. The candidates come from the country’s officially recognized 13 wine regions. Usually the runner-up in the election is appointed wine princess. The candidates do not need to come from a winery or vineyard but need solid knowledge about German wine and the wine industry, oenology, and wine-making. They need to be eloquent and good ambassadors for the German wine industry, and available to serve in their capacity as wine ambassador for a year.




Mara Walz, the wine princess who attended the party on July 25th, is 25 years old, and was honored as the sixty-eighth German wine princess for her professional wine knowledge and her excellent presentation skills.


As the old saying goes, “one look is worth a thousand words”; when princess Mara appeared at the party, her dignified, graceful, and relaxed appearance inspired a round of applause from the audience. Her delicate red skirt fit her figure perfectly, and her golden crown, with 13 jewels to symbolize her country’s 13 wine regions, had the effect of making her appear to be a real princess. Her fluent English and her professional wine knowledge delighted guests, and her amiable character made her a pleasure to listen to throughout her short introduction to German wine.

The true heroes of the evening were of course the wines: Sunfreesia Riesling white wine, SUNGIVEN FOODS’ own wine brand; and the distinguished guest, Schloss Vollrads Goethe, a high quality white wine of Riesling, sat on the tables as guests entered. Mr. Zhu Li Nong, an independent wine critic from CCTV (China Central Television), and Mr. Wu Tan, events manager of the German Wine Association China representative office, raised their glasses and tasted the wines alongside other guests. The Sunfreesia Riesling white wine is made with a special de-souring process that reduces its acidity while retaining its original fruity flavor, making it the perfect wine for those who don’t enjoy tartness.

Oyster, pandalus borealis, and flounder — dishes that go well with wine

Squeeze two wedges of succulent lemon over a big meaty oyster. One bite of it will match perfectly with a sip of cool Riesling wine, and the flavors will mix delicately in your mouth.


The meat of the pandalus borealis, which comes from the far away arctic, is sweet and tender. Its sweet taste matches well with Riesling’s tartness, creating an unforgettable sweet-and-sour flavor.


The aroma of sizzled boneless flounder wafted from an open kitchen, and attracted plenty of guests to the grill. With a bit of salt and pepper sprinkled on top, the flounder melted in the mouth.


The fragrance of the Riesling wine pervaded the air as guests raised their glasses and toasted to the moment, gathered together with friends and enjoying the creeping effects of the wine. The evening included an elegant wine princess, good wine, and delicate seafood; the distinguished guests had arrived in high spirits and left with satisfaction.
