Maruša Mukenauer, Maribor’s 13th Wine Queen
Maribor’s new Wine Queen for 2023 through 2025 is 21-year-old Maruša Mukenauer from Štajerska’s idyllic winegrowing town of Svečina.
Maruša Mukenauer, Maribor’s 13th Wine Queen “I’ve been around wine and winemaking since I was born. Our family’s tradition goes all the way back to 1903, and we are the fourth generation continuing on the estate. Now I will be the proud ambassador of the world’s oldest grapevine, Maribor’s incredible winegrowing region, and of course our wonderful Maribor itself. I am the voice of a new generation of vintners whose fresh trends and approaches are elevating our wine region to among the world’s very best.”
Maribor’s 13th Wine Queen has picked Welschriesling as her regal wine of choice, as it is a sort that is typical of her birthplace as well as of Štajerska in general. Her family’s cellar stocks plenty of it.
