What a grape day sounds like
Take a tour through the wine route of the Rhine Valley where the noble Riesling in the Rheingau meet the 1000 rolling hills of Rheinhessen. We will travel through small historic villages along the Rhine River as it curves its way down to Ruedesheim. Along the way, we will stop at award-winning, historically significant and high-quality German vineyards. This is where the Romans planted their wines and the Cistercian monks perfected it. We will visit a thoughtful mix of of some of our favourite wineries. Some of them helping to shape German winemaking principles which are today's VDP top standards. There will be great examples along the way of how German wine traditions have been reshaped into modern authentic ways. With many opportunities to swirl, sniff and slurp German Sparkling wine, Riesling and other top varieties guided by the makers. With all those tastings we will need to stay balanced with a stop to try delicious food specialties. Tour Highlights: * Hotel pick up and drop off Frankfurt or Mainz area. Tours start around 10:30 based on first wine tasting * 3 wine tastings - tasting a variety of 8+ wines per tasting * Cellar tour (when available due to wine work) * Local lunch with wine * Water and snacks along the way * All tasting fees included Tour dates are flexible, please get in contact to let us know your preferred times and any wine requests. Also I believe wine is best shared with friends and more the merrier! Open wines & open minds! It can be during the busier travel times that I have to manage many thirsty requests of wine lovers coming to Germany. I always keep my groups small (max 7 - usually its just another wine-loving couple) and tours always personal taking into account your wine wishes. PLEASE NOTE: If you WISH YOUR DAY TO BE PRIVATE. An additional fee based on seasonal demand may be requested. An additional pick up fee maybe also requested based on more distant pick up locations.
