Ninorta Bahno from Syria will on Wednesday become the first refugee to be crowned wine queen to represent German wine producers in the region around the Moselle, Saar, and Ruwer rivers in the western part of the country.

The association of Trier-Olewiger wineries is to announce that Bahno, 26, will take on the task of promoting the region's wines.

A Christian, Bahno fled to Germany three and half years ago and is currently training to work in the employment services area.
