Mosel MW trip
Six excellent masterclasses, a few vertiginous vineyards ascents and descents, a 30km long walk-around tasting, not to mention daily opportunities for limerick-ing creativity made for a most memorable and engaging trip to the Mosel in pursuit of the current state of Riesling there.
A good interplay of transport – from bus to boat to foot – added perspective and exercise; while multiple meetings with a new generation of Mosel winemakers added inspiration and excitement for the future in an area where viticulture is expensive and where demand has, at times, fled elsewhere.
