When it comes to wine everyone has heard of Napa Valley. And of course France, Italy, Australia and Chile. But visiting Germany on a wine tour?
Interestingly enough we have more and more visitors from overseas acknowledging the excellence of German wines and wanting to discover them on a wine tour. There are 13 wine regions in Germany altogether. With more than 23,000 vineyards in Baden we are considered the 3rd largest wine region in Germany.
The climate here is very warm, vineyards being protected by the mountains and facing the Rhine. Due to the warm climate in this most southern wine region in Germany, Baden is the only wine region in Germany that is considered a Wine-zone B. This is the same category as the famous French wine-growing areas Alsace, Champagne, Loire Valley. That means what’s being produced here has to meet stricter quality standards than wine grown in any other part of Germany. With every sip you taste you will fall in love with German wines.
The Baden Wine road connects numerous old wineries and tiny villages at a length of 160 km. During our wine tours we visit some of the private wineries as well as some of the communal vineyards. It’s still time to book a tour for this year’s harvest season in September! Come visit during harvest season and get the chance to attend one of the many wine festivals held everywhere in the area. See you soon in the Black Forest!
