Rheinhessen

Hidden at the back of a row of tiny alleys lies the Landhotel Strubel-Roos with its ages old vinery at the side – a truly unique experience of hospitality in the heart of Rheinhessen.

The Bernhard Räder estate - where history, art, hospitality and sustainability come together in Rheinhessen.

Perfect service, perfect wine experience complete with bed, food, exploration and wine – that is why the Espenhof in Rheinhessen was decorated with the Best of Wine Tourism Award 2016.

In ten years, Carolin Gillot and Hans-Oliver Spanier, two winemaking visionaries have created a Rheinhessen masterwork at Weingut Kühling-Gillot. The winery was the 2016 regional winner in the 'Architecture, Parks & Gardens' category of the 'Best Of Wine Tourism' competition.

Andreas Mohr of Weingut Mohrenhof believes that wine tourism is all about serving wine tourists' needs.  His successful wine safaris through the vineyards of the Rheinhessen prove that he's right!

Eva Eppard, chef at the Restaurant Kupferberg in Mainz, 2016 winner of a regional 'Best Of Wine Tourism' award in the Restaurant category, boldly reinterprets the cuisine of the region using high quality, locally sourced produce that is imaginatively paired with the best wines from the Rheinhessen.

Rheinhessen, that wine region between Mainz and Alzey, is still a white spot on the map of many a wine drinker's landscape. It's a wide country of thousand hills, spottet with lots of small wineries, most of which you never heard of. The houses look forbidden from the outside, but inside you find many a surprise: Excellent Tappas, a colorful degustation and a theater in an old barn. Wine-discoveries in Rheinhessen – Mainz& was part of a trip.
