Daetwyl Winery

The winery Daetwyl is a classical example of a Rhine-Hessian foursided yard. Beside a medieval living tower and defense tower, a romantic cow chapel and a wide spread cellar vault a day laborer's house from the 19th century exists there. After numerous construction measures it now serves as a guest room and holiday house. As an intentional contrast to the historic courtyard complex a modern wine-house was built as the new core of the winery for tastings and sale of in-house wines. The winery has been awarded in the context of „barrier-free Rhineland-Palatinate“.

Three guest rooms and the holiday house for up to 8 people enable a restful wine experience.  Topical wine tastings, enjoyment packages and guided tours or the participation in the grape harvest round off the innovative oenotouristic package as a whole of the Dettweiler family.

Henschke and Hutton Vale Farm

~Neighbours sharing the landscape for the past 145 years, the Henschke and Angas families are welcoming private
groups, personally hosted by family members.
It’s an experience that captures the history and strong links between these two Eden Valley founding families while
highlighting their land and human connection in their food chain, and how the combination of people and place are
directly responsible for the unique flavours you eat and drink.
Both families are mindful of being generational custodians with a high priority on sustainability, and a vision to pass
on their land to the next generation in healthy condition.
