You ask, what is the link between a world class highjump meeting and wine? This is the answer: In Eberstadt, Württemberg there is the annual Worldclass Highjump Meeting, where the superstars in this sport are celebrating the last event of the season. The Olympic Gold Medal winners, they were here! This was last week from the 22nd to the 24th August 2014. The Winzer vom Weinsberger Tal are one of the main sponsors of this event.
