It's a thing with tastings. Nowadays, everything is offered for tasting, from salt from all regions of the world to non-carbonated water .
Whether Olive oil tasting or coffee seminar - one thing is clear: the mother of all tastings is wine tasting.
You have to have tasted a wine. A wine tasting - ideally under the guidance of the winemaker or a sommelier - is a taste experience in itself, entertaining and informative and ultimately the way to the grape varieties and the levels of sweetness (from dry to sweet) that suit you personally.
Wine tastings in the Freinsheim holiday region are offered in many different kinds.
- quite conventionally at the vintner's in the vinotheque, the wine tasting room or directly in the cellar
- as a culinary wine tasting in a restaurant with wines selected to match the menu or
- during a vineyard hike under a shady tree in the middle of the vineyards.
Many of our winegrowers have very individual opening hours at which you can come to the winery and ask for a wine tasting. It´s safer to ask for an appointment in advance to ensure that there is actually someone on site who can give you expert advice.
You are welcome to contact the Tourist Information offices in Kallstadt and Freinsheim with your wine tasting requests. We will look for the right vintner according to your needs and wishes. Or you can choose a winegrower yourself and contact him or her directly. We have compiled the lists of vintners in our villages below.
PS: when it comes to carbonated mineral water, it really is worth paying attention to professional taste comparisons. The natural mineral content of the various springs makes one water more suitable than another for making a refreshing wine spritzer.
