Franklin Square gets a taste of German wine


The original German Wine Festival, Das Weinfest, visited Franklin Square on Sept. 10.

Over 300 people attended the first Das Weinfest at Plattduetsche Park Restaurant, Catering and Biergarten last Sunday.

For many guests, it was a chance to expand their palettes with over 40 German wines to choose from. Folks could pair their drinks with charcuterie boards and specialty pizza made by Executive Chef Herbert Aigner.

Attendees got to listen to live music from The Austrian Boys and Eric Justvig during the festivities.

“We look forward to expanding this event next year to intoduce the award-winning German wines to even more people,” said Matthew Buck, general manager of the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant, Catering and Biergarten.
