My two favourite Wine Queens :-)
Pity we were so far from home - we couldn't stay longer and enjoy more of the lovely wines and pretzels.
We were even in time to see the crowning of this years "Wine Queen" and her "Wine Princesses" (very pretty) :-)
We needed all the wine we could drink to get us through her "acceptance speech" :-S
At last we reached the end of the road (for us) at Bingen. And to our surprise (and delight) we found they were having a wine festival, our second of this short break!
We continued on our way towards Bingen, a major Wine town. On the way we passed yet more castles, which included this one "Zollturm Pfalzgrafenstein" perched on an island in the middle of the Rhine.
