I'm going to be visiting Germany at the end of the year. We will be in Frankfurt for about 4 days and from everything I've read that seems to be the closest to the major wine regions. Does anyone have any suggestions on areas to visit near Frankfurt? I want to drive to the Mosel Valley. Any specific wineries, places to eat, etc?
We will be in Berlin and Cologne as well.
If you can visit Ratzenberger Winery. I would highly recommend it. It is beautiful. I studied abroad in Germany and we stayed in Koblenz, near the Deutsches Eck, where the Mosel and Rhine meet. Take the trip out there as well. They have a river cruise in the area. Also you can take a the aerial tram/cablecar across the river to a castle that overlooks the scenery.
