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.
I was fortunate to visit Ernie Loosen for a few days back in 2011 during the harvest festival in Bernkastel. I would highly recommend making that part of your visit if you can flex your travel dates.
