Rheinland and Moselland

The meandering Mosel makes its way north-east from Luxembourg. At every turn the vineyards have different potential. The Mosel finishes its path in Koblenz, where it flows into the Rhine. This part, listed by UNESCO, with its majestic castles and abbeys, represents for many the very essence of great German wine.
