Today I traveled up to the Mosel Valley in Germany and stopped in a little village called Piesport. This village is well-known for their wines–there is evidence that they’ve been making wine here for 2000 years — not 500 yards from our hotel was a Roman-Celtic wine cellar from the 3rd to 5th Century.
We went to a wonderful wine-tasting at the Spaeter-Veit Vineyard. If you happen to be in Germany, on the Mosel, in Piesport — I highly recommend you stop at this place and sample their excellent wines.
Even in winter, the Mosel is a magical place…and even though I was feeling good from the wine-tasting, I still followed through with my mission and drank a beer. LOL! What was it you ask? A Kulmbacher Moenchshof “Original” Pilsner … sorry, no good description for this one … it’s probably pretty good, but I did drink it after about 2 liters of wine … sooooo …. because I’m dedicated to this task … here are the pictures!
