When you roll through Rheinhessen, along those soft, vineyard-strewn hills, you find on the outskirts of a small village named Köngernheim a very inconspicuous assemble of buildings. When you step through the gate, a whole new world opens: old half-timberes houses surround a romantiv yard and cuddle the main house – an old grain mill. Its secrets lodge on the inside: highly modern, yet cosy rooms, a gourmet restaurant, and a 110 square meter spa area with yoga room, saunas and an outdorr pool that bows to the wine dedication of the area.
VINEXPO PARIS and WINE PARIS are taking a new step forward in their collaboration and creating a communal area to welcome the world’s wine regions to their next event (from 10 to 12 February 2020 – Paris Expo Porte de Versailles).
