Autumn is the ideal season for hiking in Rhineland-Palatinate: with sturdy shoes you start your tour in the early morning, while the haze of fog covers your clothes - the perfect cooling for a steep ascent! With every meter of altitude you climb past the colored leaves of the vines, the fog becomes a little thinner and soon the warm autumn sun gently strokes your face. At the top you can rest and enjoy unforgettable panoramas. The sun's rays gently play with the billowing mist and the light wetness of the morning makes the different rocks of the vineyards shine: the bold furrows of the slate rocks, the varied colors of the sandstone, the soft shapes of the limestone soils. These multifaceted characteristics of the terroir, however, not only shape nature, but also the wines of the respective regions.
So when the last veil has lifted at noon and you return from your tour to one of the small wine villages, you are already greeted by the aroma of culinary delicacies. The hearty taste of onion tart that fills your belly, the tart sweetness of a good Federweißen that invigorates the senses and the hot chestnuts in the bag that warm your hands - what could be better?
