A tour with Culture and Wine Ambassador Kirsten Pfitzer
By CARMEN SADOWSKI: The Mosel below, a bright blue sky above and narrow paths winding through the sea of vines in between. “You can see better on foot,” the painter Paul Klee once said. And the artist was right, because all senses are alertwhen walking. Slate crunches under foot, wormwood releases its scent. Bushy stonecrop glows on rocks, songbirds hustle. And there are grapes, grapes and more grapes growing wherever you look, on every little spot of land.
Hiking along the Mosel is a very popular pastime. And so is drinking wine, of course. What a good thing it is that combining one with the other is so easy to do.
