Riesling wines from the Saar river are among the most desired and most expensive white wines in the world.
A trip to the region south of Trier at the end of August can be perfectly combined with a casual visit to historic wineries and modern vinotheques.
Serrig, Saarburg, Ockfen, Ayl, Wiltingen, Kanzem - world-famous wine towns are lined up on the lower reaches of the Saar. The steep slopes are densely overgrown with Riesling vines. Around 770 hectares of vineyards are cultivated on the Saar. The most important grape variety is Riesling.
The SaarRieslingSommer event provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy top-class wines locally at the winemakers in one of the most beautiful wine-growing landscapes and to learn directly from the producer how they are produced. There are numerous guest winemakers from the German and Luxembourg Moselle, Ruwer, Baden, Palatinate, Rheingau and Portugal.
You cannot learn about wine in a more holistic manner: in nature, in the cellar, in the sophisticated restaurant.
