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 summer day out and allows you to harvest the best of the Mosel has to offer from a wine tasting to a brewery hall visit with lunch and Mosel river cruise – all included for one great price!
We start our day with a visit to a popular Mosel wine grower where we enjoy an in-depth wine tasting of their fruit forward modern style vintages that showcase the best qualities the Mosel wine region is known for. We will learn how the climate on the riverbanks and the rich soil reflects in the wines bouquet and why the saying “in vino veritas (under the influence, a person tells the truth)” is so true! After the included tasting, you will have time shop for additions to your private collections.
A short scenic drive along the Mosel riverbanks takes us to our next destination, 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. Today the site functions as a brewery and also offers 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 own crypt, perhaps have another glass of wine in courtyard, or take a stroll through the herb and rose garden.
To end a perfect day on the idyllic German riverside, we take our cruise up river to the popular winegrowing town of Bernkastel–Kues. Enjoy the charm and unique atmosphere of this historical city, stroll along cobblestone streets framed by adorned half-timbered houses and take in the dreamy ambience before it is time to return home.
