Rüdesheim landmark turns into „Las Vegas“ for wine lovers
The game with aromas is a jackpot
Caught in the middle between the exciting contrasts of old and new, wine instead of brandy is now enjoyed in the RheinWeinWelt in Rüdesheim. Contrasts are unified and playing with wine aromas turns into a physical adventure which is quite unique in Germany.
Just as scintillating Las Vegas, the original glass tiles of the historic wine tanks glitter and sparkle. Walk- in tanks where the flow of wine and fun of tasting never stops.76 wine estates stretch along 165km of river Rhine, from Nierstein to Königswinter, inviting you to enter and taste wine in an unusual and fun way. Every sip is a winner!
Just like in a casino you will need coins for this. After inserting the coin, specially constructed wine dispensers will fill your glass with a taste of 0,03 l of your chosen wine.
The game goes on with the RheinWeinWelt wine lounge. Need a break from wine tasting? Here you may experience true homemade food on a sophisticated level. Soul food, the kind of food which requires no explanation because it captivates. Savoury dishes, small treats freshly baked cakes and tartes or coffee – all five senses are tickled here at the very latest. Welcome!
