Mainz | Rheinhessen

The sky-high cypresses remind of southern Italy, palm trees grow behind the house, and the boxwoods form maze games for the eyes to linger – truly, the gardens at Weingut Listmann remind of a different time and place. Yet, we're here in Rheinhessen, only a few kilometers from the Palatinate which they call the Tuscany of Germany. "I always loved that view, when, driving over the Brenner Pass, we came to Italy and saw those cypresses", Eckhard Lismann rhapsodizes: "Whatever they're having in terms of gardens, we can have here, too."

The Best Of Wine Tourism Award Winner of Mainz and Rheinhessen perfectly show what the wine region stands for:  Modern wine experience buildings emerge - historic ones are kissed out of their slumber. Behind all are clever, integrated concepts that not only fit perfectly into the Rheinhessen region, but also live it.

The ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ People’s Choice Award is an offshoot of the ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ awards.  The accolade, created in 2018, gives wine tourists from all over the world the opportunity to vote for their favorite wine tourism experience from among the latest winners of a prestigious ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award.

What are the ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ awards?

There simply seems no cleverer combination than wine and sports! Look at it this way: While sports fans are happy to enjoy both things at the same time, the lazybones among us could see it as an inspiration to do at least some sports. Anyway, exercise is good and wine is even better.

Wein-Laster

A wine truck that combines wine with hiking and celebrations, collaborates with others and delivers high quality: For this idea the jury awarded the Best Of Wine Tourism Award 2020 to the mobile vintage car wine bar.
