Mosel River Wine Affair

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, brewery hall visit combined with a traditional lunch – all included for one great price!

This special 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 wine's bouquet and why the saying “in vino veritas (under the influence, a person tells the truth)” is so true!

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 of 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 us to the popular and historic wine-growing town of Bernkastel–Kues. The cobblestone streets framed by adorned half-timbered houses create a dreamy ambiance 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!
