Our Castles & Wine tour takes you to fantastic locations in the wine regions of Germany, where ancient castles perch majestically over winding river valleys carpeted by vineyards and forests. Let us take you on a magical trip through history and the varied landscapes of viniculture in Germany.

We visit 7 different wine regions in Germany! Each region has its characteristic wine and a generous amount of medieval castles and renaissance palaces that nourish the romantic flair of the landscape. We’ll visit well known locations along with some hidden gems “off the beaten path”. We start with the Mainfranken “boxbeutel” wine region then head to the German Wine Road before heading north to the Rheinhessen region (Germany’s largest). The last days of the trip are spent in the majestic Rhine and Moselle river valleys, perhaps the most enchanting region in Germany!
Book this trip and embark on a journey of beautiful landscapes full of majestic castles and a world of wonderfully delightful wines. You will delightfully discover that most Riesling wines are in fact, rather dry!
