The Moselle river weaves its way through a charming,
vine-covered valley, marking the south-eastern border of the former
the present-day "Mittelmosel-Kondelwald wine and holiday region".
The well known Central Moselle winegrowing area is the home of the world famous, highly regarded Riesling wine.
Visitors should be sure to taste the wines grown at the notable vineyards in the towns of Kinheim, Kröv, Kövenig and Reil.
