About Rheingau Wine Festival
At the beginning of September, you should visit Frankfurt, Germany.
Rheingau vintners are presenting their fine wines in the heart of Frankfurt am Main on Frankfurt’s promenade “Freßgass”.
Each year, there are more than six hundred wines and sparkling wines you can taste on the spot – all from the Rheingau region – offered at 30 wine stands.
And for making a complete experience, organisers will also offer refreshments at food stalls to complement the wines.
Rheingau Wine Festival will take place at Freßgass, Große Bockenheimer Straße/Opernplatz – a festival with a tradition of almost 40 years.
That long tradition turns the venue into the longest wine bar globally and annually attracts several thousand visitors.
The Rheingau region
The Rheingau region runs west of Mainz, north of Rüdesheim and is considered one of the country’s most important wine-growing areas.
With around 3 thousand hectares of vineyards, the Rheingau region produced wines such as Riesling and Pinot Noir as far as Roman times.
So it’s not surprising that the area is so popular.
You are diving into the incredible journey of visiting small towns and villages along the Rhine; Monastery, the Germany Wine Academy, the historic winemaking town Rüdesheim and more.
