Erben Karl Dillinger wines
When I visited B-K for the wine festival, I had a wonderful wine:
Riesling - Auslese
Wiengut Erben Karl Dillinger
Does anyone know if you can:
1) purchase wine in the USA from this winery?
2) order wine directly by the case from this winery?
I can only find Web sites that are in German, so I have not been able to get any information.
Re: Erben Karl Dillinger wines
They don't seem to have a website themselves but there is a contact address and phone/fax number. Maybe you should just contact the personally and ask...
Travel Tips for Bernkastel-Kues
Let’s make no secret of it. We both like a nice cold glass of beer. Being abroad is always a challenge to find a beer we like, which reflects our taste of having a beer. In Germany it was sometimes rather difficult. We found out that there are quite some local beers, only known in that particular area. But anyway, we did like the Kirner Pils.
The history of the Kirner family dates back to the 15th century. The first link to a brewery is made in the 17th century when they opened the doors in the little village of Kirn. The beer became rather popular and ever since 1798 it´s even available on a large scale. Just try it, it´s good!
When you click on my picture you may see a mural about another historic even that gives a good reason to drink the local wine:
My translation for people, not speaking German :
The prince was ill and the doctors could not help him anymore. It seemed to be the end of his life, but someone gave him a vat of wine and he returned to life !!
Another good excuse to remember when drinking the local wine !!
Castle Landshut dating back to the 8th century
The Mosel was an important river for shipping, already at Roman times.
Therefore plenty of castles were built in order to be able to get taxes from the ships and also in order to be able to defend the villages and the precious vinyards against enemies.
From the castle you still have a great view of the Mosel-valley !
Down the Mosel River by boat
The Mosel is a meandering river in a steep valley often as dramatic as the Middle Rhine. Cruises frequently depart or terminate in Trier, Germany’s oldest city with huge Roman monuments, just across the border from Luxemburg and France. Popular stops along the Mosel River include half-timbered wine-trading villages, Cochem with a medieval-look knights’ castle, and Burg Eltz, an authentic medieval.
Also there are options for getting on a boat trip at the Mosel bank right in front of Bernkastel-Kues' Alten Moselbahnhof at the parking area (check out "Viking-River-Cruises"). Also you might check out the link below. There are great & general informations provided about "Routings of Rhine River" etc.
St.Michaelskirche / St.Michael church
St.Michaelskirche dates back to the end of the 14th century, but the tower is much older and was once part of the fortification-walls around the town.
Inside the church you may see a "holy grave" of the 17th century.
