Mosel River Wine Romance

Harvest the best of the Mosel

Explore the bounty of the Mosel river from the beautiful scenery to the delicious wine and beer that this region is famous for!  This amazing day out and allows you to harvest the best of the Mosel has to offer from a wine tasting, brewery hall visit with lunch, and Mosel river cruise – all included for one great price!

This special Autumn Mosel trip begins at the Walter J. Winery, a premium, 13 generation Moselle wine producer who will introduce us to the world of winemaking and Mosel grape varietals through a tour of the winery and guided tasting.  The award winning wines produced here boast a modern style that showcases all of the best qualities the Mosel wine region is known for.  We will learn how the climate on the Mosel riverbanks and the rich soil is reflected in the wines bouquet and why the saying “in vino veritas (under the influence, a person tells the truth)” is so true! This Autumn Harvest itinerary provides a special in-depth exploration of the relationship between food and wine. 

With the winter holiday festive season approaching, this is the perfect opportunity to learn about how specific wines can complement and elevate foods and menus, which will be discussed as we go through a tasting of five different wines.  This wine tasting will arm you with the skills to be the perfect host that can take simple foods like cheese and fruits, and transform them into an evening of culinary delight for all your guests. After the wine tasting there will be an opportunity to sample the wineries special Christmas liquor, only available this time of year.  Before we depart the winery, you will have the opportunity to purchase wines presented during the tasting and other vintages to stock up your private collection for the holiday season ahead.

Next, we take a short scenic drive through the Mosel valley, alongside the river and the many carefully manicured rows of naked vines that are now sleeping for the winter, revealing steep vineyards, picturesque villages, hidden away castles and castle ruins.  We arrive at the Cistercian abbey of Machern, which looks back on more than 1000 years culinary and architectural history and now functions as a brewery. Here, we enjoy a regional lunch of Schnitzel with homemade beer sauce in the Brewery Hall, where you can also order some of the high quality rustic ale that is produced on premise.  After lunch you are free to explore all the Abbey has to offer at your own pace. You may visit the Toy & Icon Museum, the brewery store, visit the Abbey’s own crypt or perhaps have another glass of wine or beer in the Beer Hall.

Our final excursion takes on the Mosel River for a short cruise to the popular and historic winegrowing town of Bernkastel–Kues. The cobblestone streets framed by adorned half-timbered houses create a dreamy ambience and vintage atmosphere that will at once, charm and delight you.  From here, we meet up with our bus and conclude our perfect day in Mosel wine country and return to Ramstein, fully stocked with amazing wine and beer for the upcoming holiday season!
