‘Experiences’ are the key to wine tourism success stories

On November 12, Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum was the scene of the 2016 international  ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ awards ceremony sponsored by the Great Wine Capitals Global Network.  The ceremony took place during the gala dinner that marked the end of the Network’s annual general meeting.

Weingüter Willems & Hofmann

While on the outside clear and simple lines dominate, integrating rather subtly, minimalist and quite technically into the surroundings, inside
the building the tasting room inspires with large glass surfaces that allow extensive views of the production area and the barrique cellar.
This visual linking if not only production and tasting but also the surrounding hilly Rheinhessen landscape offers visitors a deep insight into
the world of wines.

Weingut Hildegardishof

Modern but also committed to tradition, the Hildegardishof wine restaurant can accommodate more than 300 guests in several rooms and serves
authentic local cuisine and excellent wines from Rheinhessen. Naturally, with over 30 different grape varieties that are currently cultivated, a
wide range of wine tastings is available.

Weingut Dohlmühle

The Dohlmühle, one of the oldest mills on the little river Wiesbach, was first made mention of in 1346. Today, the traditional estate can be
counted amongst the pioneers of the region. The Dohlmühle Estate impresses with its comprehensive offering including accommodation, a spa,
a restaurant as well as a vaulted cellar, and truly pampers visitors with wine and food tastings, covered wagon tours through the vineyards,
readings, and other events.

Oliver de Luca

Oliver de Luca is known in Mainz not only for his program „Wine & Magic“ in cooperation with Gebert’s Weinstuben, Best Of Wine Tourism
Award winner in the category of Wine Tourism Restaurants in 2009. His idea of enchanting guests as a wizardly host, by combining magic
moments, food and wine and thus creating a wholistic and sensous experience, inspires his audience again and again.


Lovingly and individually created events and trips: the heart of the old town of Mainz is home to the two owners of the Herrgottsgarten and the place where they arrange premium events of sophisticated wine pleasure. They always make sure to convince with a perfect combination of beautiful scenery, excellent wines and great ideas such as a wine tasting at full moon, a hike ending with a traditional roast duck dinner, or a torch hike with mulled wine.

Opening hours: 2 pm-6 pm, Monday – Saturday


Weingut Eppelmann

In April 2013 the Eppelmann Estate set up the multi-media wine hike in Stadecken-Elsheim.
Along various hiking paths through the vineyards visitors can use their smartphone and internet video clips to learn more about grape varieties,
the terroir and grape processing right in the respective individual vineyard sites. Not only are the guests welcome at the Vinothek and estate,
but they are especially invited to embrace the wine as a whole with its origin in the vineyard to the pleasure of finally tasting it.

Presentation of selected Mainzer wines, vintage 2014. 18 winegrowers of Mainz invite to taste their best white, rosé and red wines. Private customers and wine lovers can taste and choose their autumn favourites and of course acquire some for the domestic wine shelves. Again, the event's focus lies on the popular blind tasting of red wines.

Entrance fee € 10. The amount will be refunded starting from a purchase value of Euro 100.
