Wine region Rheingau
The Rheingau region is famous for its numerous sights and relics from the past such as castles and palaces, monasteries and churches. Above all, however, the region is famous for its outstanding wines. The highlight is the famous Rheingau Riesling, one of the world’s most popular and aromatic white wines. Apart from being highly informative, a visit to the vineyards in Rüdesheim and the Rheingau region is a tasty delight!
Even though the Romans already began to grow wine in the Rheingau region, it was the Emperor Charlemagne who introduced a more targeted cultivation of vines in the area. His method prevails until this day: viticulture is one of the most important economic sectors of the Rhine region today and has significantly shaped the landscape. A large number of traditional vineyards are still being operated today and are perfect for an excursion or a wine tasting.
