The topic of wine, vineyards and winemakers was not in our focus for a long time, until I got a taste for it. To enjoy the wine directly from the winemaker, that is something quite different than buying a bottle in the supermarket.
In the meantime, we prefer to drink the “drink of the gods” directly on site or in the immediate vicinity of the vineyard. A visit to the winemaker, a look into the wine cellar with its treasures and the expert explanations have brought me much closer to the subject of viticulture. Especially the smaller winemakers produce wines that cannot be compared with supermarket goods from large producers. They are usually more mature in taste and full-bodied.
There are 13 major wine regions in Germany that could not be more different. Besides lots of wine, the regions offer opportunities for relaxation, some culture and of course activities from kayak tours to hang gliding. Actually perfect for a relaxing and varied vacation.
The variety of the offer is almost infinite… the tastes so different … there are so many growing areas and winemakers to discover….
Wine and wine growing areas in Germany
Discover the wines in the wine regions of Ahr, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Middle Rhine, Moselle, Nahe, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rhinehesse, Saale-Unsrut, Saxony and Wurttemberg.
Since we like to move very much and not only like to drink, we now simply combine both topics and undertake wine hikes that lead from one vintner, from one vineyard to the next growing area. What could be better than enjoying a good drop of wine directly in the vineyard or stopping off at a vintner’s at the end of a hike? Good food and a fine wine simply belong together.

Anyone traveling in Europe will be surprised to find wine-growing regions everywhere. During our travels, we have also taken a look at the topic of European wine. In the process, we have already discovered great offers.
