Product ID: 54179
Description

Discover the romantic Rhein Valley, approximately 45 minutes from Frankfurt, where the Kings of Riesling in the Rheingau meet the 1000 hills of Rheinhessen across the Rhein, with this full-day wine tasting tour.
 
You will travel through small historic villages along the Rhine river as it curves its way down to the Germanic fairytale village Ruedesheim. Many locals call it the Tuscany of the North. Along the way, you will stop at award-winning, historically significant and high-quality German vineyards. This is where the Romans planted their wines and the Benedictine monks perfected it.
 
You will visit a thoughtful mix of wineries showing great examples of how German wine traditions have been reshaped into some of Germany's best-respected wineries. This includes a stop at a vineyard owned by a Prince, a visit to a heritage listed mansion where you will go underground into a legendary vaulted cellar where 100-year-old vintages are stored (and still drinkable).
 
There will be many opportunities to swirl, sniff and slurp German Sparkling, Riesling and Noble Red varieties guided by the makers. With all those tastings you will need to stay balanced with a stop to try delicious food specialties including cheese and charcuterie.

We're head over heels in love with wine, true "wineheads" in German. We obsess over three things: wine, sharing stories and meeting other Wineheads. It's the simple things we enjoy most in life. We believe sharing a good glass of wine over some salumi and cheese with great company is all that it takes. Although for all the Weinheads out there we know that wine is not a simple subject and good wine is quite a personal matter. We're trying to take wine not too seriously, but we do like to meet those who do. We're inspired by the passionate makers who put their life's work, heart and soul into the glass you're about to swirl, sniff and slurp. We believe that "every empty bottle has a great story to tell." and that's why we are on a mission with our grape escapes to help people experience great wine stories.
