The Rheingau wine region is known as the "German Riviera", due to its proximity to the beautiful Rhine River and the pleasantly warm climate throughout the year. The conditions are perfect for wine production, especially Riesling. Learn more on this private wine tasting tour.
This tour will lead to you the charming wine town of Eltville am Rhein - well known as "the city of wine, sparkling wine and roses". Ripened on fertile soils and sun-drenched southern slopes, wines from Eltville are known for their top quality. The finest vineyards such as Eltviller Sonnenberg, Steinberg, Martinsthaler Wildsau and Rauenthaler Baiken are famous all over the world.
Depart in a private vehicle from your hotel in Frankfurt with your driver guide/wine expert. Upon arrival in Eltville, enjoy a guided town walk focusing on the local history of viticulture going back to the 11th century.
Enjoy lunch in a local wine restaurant and tastings in three different wineries. All are family businesses that combine the long tradition of viticulture with the here and now in a unique way:
Hirt-Gebhardt Winery: The Gebhardt family of winegrowers was already mentioned in documents at the end of the 30-year war. Over time the winery has grown from a small family business to a flourishing winery with 23 hectares of vineyards.
Offenstein-Erben Winery : The winery is run by the 5th generation with passion and idealism. Thomas Schumacher Jr. was awarded the title of Young Winemaker of the Year 2016/2017 by the German Agricultural Society.
Madeleine Ries Winery: In 2020, the Madeleine Ries winery emerged from the parental winery Weingut C.Belz. The expansion of the grape variety spectrum, an individual wine development away from the standard, being patient and courageous - all this leads to a new and fresh wine style.
