The Nassauer Hof is reputed for being a favourite location from which to embark on tours of the scenic Rhine Valley. Our educational tour will maintain this reputation by being in the Rheingau wine region.
The Rheingau is one of 13 designated German wine regions (Weinbaugebiete) producing quality wines (QbA and Prädikatswein). It was named after the traditional region of Rheingau (meaning “Rhine district”), the wine region is situated in the state of Hesse. Although, making up only 3 percent of the total German vineyard area, the Rheingau has been the source of many historically important innovations in German wine making, and contains many wine producers of international reputation, such as Schloss Johannisberg. With its 3,125 hectares of vineyards, the region boasts a higher proportion of Riesling (77.7%) than any other German wine-growing region, with Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) making up most of the rest.
