Wine & Enjoyment

Palatinate Wine - Cultural Asset, Luxury Food and Accompaniment to Good Regional Cuisine

More than 100 million vines are spread over 85 kilometres along the German Wine Route in the Palatinate, Germany's second largest wine-growing region. The extremely mild climate with over 2,000 hours of sunshine a year ensures that the vines ripen particularly high-quality, aromatic grapes. 

Not only the winegrowers but also the restaurateurs on the German Wine Route can choose from a wide range of great products. The great abundance of regional products can also be found on the plates of many restaurants and cafés. Stop in and see for yourself.
