Rheinhessen - wine country

In the pocket of Germany between Mainz, Worms and Bingen lies the picturesque Rheinhessen – Germany's largest winegrowing region. Connoisseurs love the region for the riesling it produces. There are around 1,700 hours of sunshine here every year, which provide not only optimal growing conditions for the vines but also the perfect sunny weather for walking and exploring the local wineries. Rheinhessen also has plenty to offer cyclists, with cycle paths along the Rhine terraces and straight through the vineyards.

Good to know: Germany boasts 13 winegrowing regions, each producing wines with their own distinctive culture and heritage.
