TO ALL WINE LOVERS:
Spring Wine Tours to Germany:
The 1st GERMAN Wine Tour in 2017 goes to Germany’s wine regions east of the Rhine river, also the cradle of German intellect and culture: Saale-Unstrut, Sachsen, Franken, Württemberg (June 09 - June 18).
We will visit 16 top-rated wineries and get to know other grape varietals besides the iconic Riesling, delve deep European history when meeting the descendants of the former Royalty, hear eye-witness accounts of winemakers having lived the transition from communist, state-controlled GDR to the unified Germany, will see spectacular historic sites, such as the Green Vault in Dresden, and the Rococo Residence in Würzburg, experience world-class Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris in Saale-Unstrut and Sachsen, wonderful Silvaner in Franken, and stunning Reds in Württemberg. The "Swabian red wine revolution" has been talked about recently in the US in papers such as the SF Chronicles, NY Times, and Wall Street Journal. We will attend world-class performances at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Semper Opera in Dresden, the Mozartfestival in Würzburg, and the Ballet Stuttgart renowned for its interpretation of full-length narrative ballets.

The 2nd GERMAN Wine Tour goes to Germany’s classic, and well-known wine regions: Rheingau, Mittelrhein, Ahr, Mosel, Nahe (June 19 - June 25).
We will understand how the ‘late harvest’ was invented, what it means to work in the steepest vineyards on the planet, how finicky, wonderful, elegant, and versatile the Riesling grape is, why Pinot Noir can thrive in such a northern area 50 1/2 º of latitude, and we will meet world-renowned winemakers such as Johannes Leitz, Markus Molitor, Egon Müller, and many more. To do a cruise on the romantic Rhine river with its castle and vine-ribboned banks, to drive along the many bends of the Mosel river, to dine at a Michelin starred restaurant, and to taste gorgeous Rieslings - sweet and dry - is a wine lifestyle experience not to be missed.
