Hundreds of people present around the exhibitors’ stands were enchanted with the national anthems, beginning with the one of “Vinifest”, Lebanon’s national anthem followed by a medley of European national anthems played on violin by a group of virtuosos. When the singers on stage, started the famous “Willkommen”, a magnificent fireworks transfigured the scene behind surrounded by ancestral pines, illuminating a thousand lights, like a magic wand.
