We came near sunset to have dinner. We were seated overlooking the vineyards and with a great view of the Rhine and nearby town. Food was good, and the Chanterelle mushrooms must have been in season because they were amazing!

Probably the most famous vineyard in the Rheingau. The wine tasting is for free if a purchase of bottles occurs. Interesting qualification of dry and sweeter wines. Knowledgeable staff and assistance in English. Recommended.
