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 allows you to harvest the best the Mosel has to offer from a wine tasting to a brewery hall visit with traditional reginal lunch and a stroll through one of the region’s most famous wine towns  – all included for one great price!

Our day begins at the Walter J. Winery, a premium, 13 generation Moselle wine producer, where we will venture out into the vineyards (weather permitting) to find a glass of sparkling delight awaiting us. The carefully manicured rows of lush vines and grapes provide the perfect backdrop for us to begin our educational journey into the regions history, understanding the maintenance of the vineyards and how the unique climate of the valley and the rich soil reflects in the wines bouquet.  You will certainly come to understand why the expression “in vino veritas” is so true of these wines! 

After our stroll through the vineyards, our bus will take us to wineries production, where we will get a glimpse behind the scenes and learn even more about the process of vinification, aging and the secrets about artesian wine making. We will finish our in-depth guided wine tasting of some of the vineyards popular vintages followed by an opportunity for you purchase wines to enhance our private collection at home.

A short scenic drive along the Mosel river reveals steep vineyards, picturesque villages and hidden away castles and ruins as we travel to our next destination, Cistercian Abbey of Machern.  The Abbey looks back on more than 1000 years culinary and architectural history and today still functions as a brewery, offering high quality rustic cuisine and ale. After lunch in the brewery hall (included), we invite you 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 crypt, perhaps have another glass of wine in courtyard, or take a stroll through the herb and rose garden.  

Our perfect day exploring the beautiful and world renowned Mosel wine region of Germany would not be complete without taking you to the popular winegrowing town of Bernkastel–Kues, our final stop of the day. Here, you will be embraced by the nostalgic charm of a town steeped in natural beauty, wine culture and rich history.  Free time here provides you chance to stroll along cobblestone streets, observe the beautiful half-timbered houses and enjoy the rich ambience of this special place before it is time to return home.
