Itinerary description

VINOPOLY! - Wine samplers on German rivers

/assetimage_1778_240w179.jpgWine has shaped the history, culture, art and, not least of all, the people of Germany themselves. A friendly, nearly Southern European cheerfulness sets the tone not just in the vineyards, but in the cities as well.

Freiburg in the Black Forest (Baden wine region) is famous for its "Spätburgunder" (Pinot Noir), Müller-Thurgaus and "Grauer Burgunder" (Pinot Gris) especially. Koblenz nestled in the corner where the Rhine meets the Moselle brings together two of Germany?s oldest wine areas, the Moselle and the Middle Rhine, famous for their Rieslings.Mainz on the northern tip of Rhinehessen is where the Silvaner reigns supreme among other stalwart whites including Rivaner and Rieslings. Trier lies in the heart of the westerly wine region, the Moselle River, which is home to many fine whites and particularly the fruity Riesling and the crispy Elbling; Wiesbaden in the heart of the Rheingau harvests well-regarded Rieslings and Pinot Noirs; while Würzburg in the northern Bavarian region of Franconia, offers mineral-rich but light Rieslings.

Each of these cities provides a unique combination of culture and wine, and they are perfect for the individual traveler. They are all convenient to Frankfurt Airport, reachable by train and still offer a refreshing change for all of the senses.
