As part of our river cruise, we had a group wine tasting. It was one of the best wine tastings I have attended because the wine maker talked briefly to us about the family history and each of the four award wining wines. The bonus...More

My wife booked this as a treat for me as I am very keen on the Franconian region in terms of wine. The UK doesn't seem to stock any wine from this region and it is a shame as this region is a genuine hidden...More

We were part of a small group tour (5 plus our tour guide), so pretty much had our cellar host to ourselves. The cellar is well below ground level and is old. The place is very dim, lit by candles- an historic touch from when...More

If you can book this wine tasting, you will love it. It is not so much the wine, but the atmostphere. You go down into a cellar, which is lit by hundreds of candles. After walking through the cellars, you finally reach a room where...More

After leaving the Wurzburg Palace, our next stop was their wine cellar. And yes, definitely a wine cellar lit only by candlelight. Being on a Vantage river cruise, our group of about 175 filled the narrow cellar with seriously long tables that just kept going...More

We did taste 4 white wines, hear a little introduction on them all, and then we were on our way. It was dark and cave-like and had a nice atmosphere for wine-tasting. This establishment is near to the Residenz so, when the tour groups finish...More

It was quite appropriate to visit a wine tasting in the cellar of the Prince-Bishops Residence since Wurzburg is the center of German winemaking. To access the cellar, we walked down a candlelit, stone staircase. This can be hazardous for anyone who has issues with...More
