Stuttgart Festivals: Stuttgarter Weindorf

A Warm Welcome to the Stuttgart Festival Stuttgarter Weindorf
 I love all the Stuttgart festivals, but the Stuttgarter Weindorf, or Stuttgart Wine Village is right up my alley.  Every year this Stuttgart festival runs between the end of August and beginning of September with over a 100 wine merchants gathering to share over 250 different wines from the region, attracting over a million visitors each year.  It's a good thing this Stuttgart festival is a multi-day event with so many wines to try.  We imbibed in a refreshing glass of Schillerwein on a Saturday afternoon where we were serenaded with German music and served by women wearing dirndls - how German is that? 
Onion cake, a popular treat at this Stuttgart Festival

This Stuttgart Festival is a busy place with people relaxing over a glass of wine and onion cake (Zweibelkuchen), which is a popular cake served with wine.  The onion cake looked OK, but I wasn't as convinced about J.P.'s onion dish - bread with a special kind of butter mixed with bacon with raw onions on top.  I didn't try it as I'm allergic to gluten but it didn't look all that appetizing to me. 
I'll stick to my brat kartofellen (fried potatoes) thank you very much. 

 I definitely want to go back to this Stuttgart festival before it's over since among the different wine offerings are Kerner, Müller-Thurgau, Ruländer,  Lemberger and Weißherbst - none of which I've tried and of course I'm trying to experience as much of the local culture as possible.   Sigh, such is the "hard" life of checking out all the Stuttgart festivals.
