Mosel Must Dos

Hello Terry,
My love of Mosel Riesling has inspired me to plan a walking tour of the Middle Mosel next year. I plan on spending about a week doing this, and I’ll be over there in September. I’m sure you could talk about this for hours, but I’m very interested in any advice you may have, long or short.

Thanks for taking some time for this forum, and thanks for bringing lots of great Riesling into the states.

If you can, plan on being there the first weekend of September as it’s the Mittelmosel Wine Festival that weekend. We were there for it this past year and can’t wait to do it again.

At this point it’s possible to hike uninterrupted between Zeltingen and Bernkastel. And there’s a wonderfully rugged trail between Urzig and Erden. I’m sure there are many more. The best way to “grok” these wines is to linger among the vines, up in the crazy steep mountains.
