On August 12, Sven Finke will become the first man ever to take the wine queen title in Kesten, located in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
A 25-year-old law student and vineyard owner does not exactly fit the stereotype of a beautiful young girl wearing a white robe, a velvet shawl and a laurel wreath – clothes of a traditional wine queen.
“I want to show everyone that men are just as well suited to this job as women,” Finke exclaimed.
After being crowned wine queen, Finke will have to attend between 15 and 20 wine festivals in the town.
“The role of Bacchus is right up my alley. I like eating, I like drinking, and I am just as full of the joys of life,” announced Finke.
But this is not the end of Finke’s dreams. He aims to become the national wine queen of Germany.
However, this is not the first time there has been a deviation from the norm.
