Marlies Dumbsky, former Franconian Wine Queen

The Franconian Wine Queen (German: Fränkische Weinkönigin) is the annually-elected representative of the German wine region of Franconia. At the end of her time in office, she is eligible to participate in the competition for the German Wine Queen. Until 1963, the Franconian Wine Queen reigned for two years.

Selection process[edit]

The candidates should come from a vintner's family and be at least 18 years old. The Franconian Wine Queen is chosen by a panel of judges. She represents Franconian wine for a period of twelve months, both at home and abroad. The 57th Franconian Wine Queen (2012/13) was nominated in January 2012 as Melanie Dietrich from Fahr.[1]

After a year in office, the Franconian Wine Queen, together with the other twelve regional wine queens in Germany, takes part in the competition for the German Wine Queen. In 2008, the Franconian Wine Queen, Marlies Dumbsky from Volkach, was chosen as the 60th German Wine Queen for one year (until 2009).
