The Romans knew where it was beautiful: in the middle of the sea of vines above the Ungstein district of Bad Dürkheim, a Roman villa with a pedal wine press was uncovered in 1981 as parts of the largest Roman manor complex in the Palatinate and partially restored. In fine weather, the view extends as far as the Black Forest. The Roman circular hiking trail passes by here.

Roman Weilberg Winery

The main house is said to have had a massive front length of 150 m almost 2,000 years ago. Looking through the three imposing reconstructed columns, the panorama opens up to vineyards, the Palatinate Forest, the city and the Rhine plain. In fine weather, the view extends as far as the Black Forest. Below the villa, a functioning Roman pedal wine press has been preserved, where wine is still "pedalled" today.
The outstanding importance of the site was confirmed by the German Wine Institute with the award of the title "Highlight of Wine Culture".

In summer, the "Wine Festival at the Römerkelter" takes place here, where not only excellent wines are served, but also a Roman cohort regularly sets up camp and provides authentic insights into Roman life.


Curious? If you would like to learn more about the Roman Weilberg Winery and enter the interiors, we recommend one of our guided tours.
