A wine is an unique drink and here you can taste fabulous wines. Wines here served are belonging to the best of the region. The place to drink your glass gives you a magnificent view on the church. Great and enjoyable!

I don't like German wine and especially not white wine. However, this place taught me that there is actually exquisite good white wine. On top of that, it's even German one. You have the option to either taste some in the wine shop or then...More
