Mainz | Rheinhessen
Cypress trees, sequoias and palm trees decorate the courtyard and garden. The three-tiered yew is enthroned in the middle of the Buchs Rondell - the logo of the Listmann Winery. It stands for nature, transformed by the human hand with much love to garden culture. As with the vines: the natural product grape becomes the cultural asset of wine.
If a Europe-wide operating hotel chain orients its equipment and services entirely according to its region, then that is worthy of award - decided the jury. The Best Of Wine Tourism Award 2019 in the category Accommodation is therefore awarded to the 4-star IBB Hotel, which opened in 2017 and offers 109 rooms.
GUT LEBEN am Morstein scored well in the "Wine Gastronomy" category and received the Best Of Wine Tourism Award in 2019. Its two restaurants "WEINGARTEN am Morstein" and “SCHLÖSSCHEN am Morstein” offer in the exclusive ambience of a historic winegrower's villa and Mediterranean garden restaurant homestyle, modern interpreted cuisine as well as innovative taste experiences on a gourmet level.
GUT LEBEN am Morstein convinced the jury in two categories: The Best Of Wine Tourism Award 2019 in "Wine Gastronomy" as well as in "Art & Culture" goes to the operators of the winegrower's villa, awoken from the Sleeping Beauty Castle. The event gastronomy and conference location with a hotel has enriched cultural life in the region since November 2017.
Traditional wine tourism is combined with playful challenges at the Domhof - that convinced the jury. Because in the red wine cellar you should not only try wine or listen to the winegrowing stories, but it also becomes an "escape room": as "wine spies", the guests slip into a new role and experience wine in an unusual way.
The association "Die Mainzer Winzer e.V.", is a regional association of 26 wineries in the city of Mainz. The common goal is to present the cultural heritage of wine in its numerous facets in an exciting way and to make it a real experience.
