 Date of Issue : 17 May 2011

On 17 May 2011 Luxembourg Post issued two stamps on Viticulture.The one features wine bottle and grapes commemorating 100th Anniversary of the ‘Wenzerverband’ and the other commemorates 20th Anniversary of the Cremant de Luxembourg.


100th Anniversary of the ‘Wenzerverband’

On 28 May 1911, the district commissioner invited winegrowers to a meeting with the aim of combining all the regional viticultural associations into a single federation. At the time, there were 39 winegrowing associations, of which 30 accepted the invitation. The fundamental objectives of the federation were defined at this constitutional assembly.

They were:- to protect the interests of the profession, that is, to preserve and maintain the interests of viticulture and wine distribution;- to specifically provide continuous up-to-date education and practical training for its members and - to organise the centralised sale and distribution of different viticultural products.


20th Anniversary of the Cremant de Luxembourg

Creating a crémant requires constant vigilance, rigorous control and specific know-how, beginning with the vine. The etymology of crémant originates from the word “cream”, which underscores the consistency rather than the vinosity of a festival wine combining fruit, freshness and smoothness.

A crémant is the qualitative pinnacle of a traditional method controlled for a long time, which involves extra effort in the vineyard and a rigorous selection process of grapes and base wines. To produce sparkling wine, one may use any one of the types of vines certified in Luxembourg. The grapes must be very clean, quite ripe and intact until pressed. The “Crémant de Luxembourg” is made from the best types of vines of the Luxembourg Moselle region. Each winegrower chooses his own blends, which results in a great variety of wines and their specific flavours.
