Mainz | Rheinhessen

Every season in Mainz and Rheinhessen has its own special charm. Winter gets particularly cosy as good food and top wines come into focus while crackling fireplaces and campfire add to the atmosphere. Correspondingly, the Best of Wine Tourism award-winning wineries have interesting offers at Christmas time. So if you want to sip a delicious wine-grower‘s mulled wine or enjoy an advent barbecue in wine-grower style, the award-winning wineries are just the right place for you.

This is where the westerly winds blow through the valley, bringing the fresh breeze that speaks of freedom, strength, renewal. Westwind Wines is the name of a traditional winery in the middle of Wachenheim, right on the border between the two wine regions of Rheinhessen and the Palatinate.

The winery GUT LEBEN am Morstein brings home the Best-of-Global Award! 8 November 2018 marked the ceremony of The Global Best of Wine Tourism Awards which took place in the context of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Great Wine Capitals network in the Botanical Gardens of Adelaide.

Rheinhessen wine is known for its quality, and the region’s vintners for progress and innovation. Many of the region’s vintners within the vicinity of the wine capital of Mainz are female: these successful vintners have developed convincing ways to produce wine.

In 2008, twenty young winemakers started a crazy project: wine on the bank of the Rhine river in Mainz, open air, after work and mostly with standing visitors. "It was cozy in the beginning", Alina Engel laughs, "by now, the size of the crowd is crazy!" Ten years later, the Mainzer Weinsalon is an award-winning classic, and Alina welcomes us in the classy new vinothek of her Winery Meyerhof in Flonheim, deep in the heart of Rheinhessen.

Wine tourism and wine experience, that's why they won the Best of Tourism Award 2018 of the Great Wine Capitals for wine tourism services here.

Weingut Listmann

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.

IBB Hotel Ingelheim

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.
