Wine making is a backbreaking job. We easily forget how hard the vintners and their helpers had to work for that fine drop in our glass. Weingarten honours the namesakes of the village with a small monument that is easily overlooked, but touching if you have a closer look at it. The sandstone figure, hard to tell if it is a man or a woman, carries a heavy load of grapes on his (her?) back. Face and posture express how tough it is.

Location: Durlacher Straße, corner Kirchstraße in the curve uphill (Kirchstraße meets Durlacher Straße twice, it is the southern corner, not the one next to the churches).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
