Moselle: 3 Days Wine Lovers Private Active Tour
Germany

Be part of a winery tour escapade for lifetime memories! We have designed this tour for the wine connoisseurs and newbies who would like to acquaint themselves with Northern Europe’s most stunning vineyards closely. This private tour will make the interactions intimate and personal. And we will meet the winemakers for an even livelier experience!

Moselle

Moselle valley is famous for the most beautiful sceneries in Germany. This wine region is filled with ingredients for a perfect romantic holiday, featuring the Moselle river winding through the lush terraced vineyards and fairy tale settlements.

The first vineyards in the region are attributed to the Romans, who planted them along Moselle river’s steep slopes. Many grape varieties have risen ever since, but the area is famous for Riesling. If you are just getting started with your wine enthusiasm, the vast array of wine styles here will undoubtedly thrill you.

Moselle wine has a light taste but with intense flavor and fragrance. You will appreciate its perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. Moselle Valley offers an ideal ambiance that favors a wide variety of grapes. Don’t be surprised to come across red wine grapes in Moselle, despite its cool climate!

Along the Moselle river lie many vineyards which find the steep slopes favorable for the growth of their wine grapes. The airflow and exposure to the sun’s warmth create a great atmosphere that favors grapes’ growth. During the day, the sun’s heat is absorbed by the slate soil. At night, the soil slowly releases its warmth to the vines. This phenomenon creates an optimal vine growth environment.

We will hike through the steep and scenic vineyards and get to taste some of the world’s most fantastic white wines.

We will pick you up from the airport or your hotel on the first day of our tour. As we cruise the valley, you will love the spectacular scenery as we wind our way to the Moselle Valley wine estate.
