Wine tasting sessions and more

The Romans already appreciated the sun-kissed „strata montana“. They came here for the purpose of permanent settlement and practised viniculture. Today, the region referred to as Hessische Bergstraße, Hessian Bergstrasse is the smallest wine-growing area to be found in Germany. Its highest priority is finest quality.
 
A tour of the vineyards, the so-called Weinlagenwanderung or a wine tasting session belongs to the highlights of many vacationers:
