Your wine experience will get off to a delightful start on the day of your arrival with chicken roasted over a vinewood fire. This will be followed by a cosy evening on the pavilion of the wine tavern where winemaker Werner Hahn will provide you with an entertaining insight into the variety of red and white wines during an informative winetasting session. Following a hearty breakfast, you will spend Saturday making your own individual journey of discovery through the Nahe wine region, into the Hunsrück and Soonwald forest, along the Gemstone Route or embarking on a draisine tour.
You can look forward to a winegrower's menu on Saturday evening with seasonal specialities from the region and a choice wine from the vineyard. During a tour of inspection before or after the evening meal you will follow the journey of the grapes from the winepress to the bottled wine. On your way through the old wine cellar where fine wines are matured and stored, you will also sample a special rarity from the vineyard.
There is also an interesting supplementary offer for your Saturday itinerary: "Ride in a vintage tractor through the vineyards".
Following a traditional hearty winemaker's lunch of stew and cakes,
you can embark on a vintage tractor ride together with a group of at least
eight other people through the vineyards to where the grapes grow and ripen.
You will savour the unique vineyard landscape with magnificent views of the
Nahe Valley and sample a wine on the terroir where it originates.
Alternatively, and in the winter months (November and January to March), instead of the ride a guided tour of the vineyard can also take place with the opportunity to learn more about the pruning and also try it out for yourself.
