The Wine City of Koblenz

A unique cultural landscape shaped by the Rhine and Moselle rivers

Wine and Koblenz - these two components simply belong together. And have actually always done so. The Romans brought their vines to the Rhine and Moselle over 2,000 years ago. The two rivers developed into pulsating arteries of life: On the steep slate slopes, the vines soak up the lush sun and ripen into high-yielding and full-bodied grapes, from which many excellent wines are still produced today through traditional winemaking techniques.

WeinStadt Hiking
On the hike through the Altstadt, along the Rhine and Moselle or up to the cultural center Festung Ehrenbreitstein, numerous places offer an opportunity to stop and enjoy a delicious glass of wine from the region.
Cultural landscape of wine in Koblenz
Koblenz's unique cultural landscape, shaped by the Rhine and Moselle rivers and situated between the expanses of the Hunsrück, Westerwald and Eifel, provides the perfect breeding ground for the noblest of beverages.

In Koblenz, around half a million vines are currently cultivated in the city area. The vineyard area covers around 40 hectares, almost 10 hectares of which are located on the Middle Rhine. The working group "Die Koblenzer Winzer" (Koblenz Winegrowers) currently has 24 members, and there are 11 full-time winegrowers in the city. Sparkling Rieslings thrive just as well around the Deutsche Eck as strong Pinot Noirs or fruity Dornfelders.

Moselle wine and Koblenz
Viticulture on the Moselle
The Moselle is the largest steep slope vineyard in the world with 3,400 hectares and is considered one of the most beautiful river valleys in Europe. The terraced vineyards that run along the river from France to Koblenz offer ideal conditions for growing top wines. The region is particularly famous for its fruity Riesling, which accounts for about 62 percent of the wine. The unique microclimate created by the reflective river and the heat-retaining slate rock contributes to the high quality of the wines. Year after year, the winemakers reward their demanding craftsmanship with the finest harmonious wines of the highest class.

Rhine wine and Koblenz
Winegrowing in the Middle Rhine
The Romans also brought viticulture to the Middle Rhine wine region. Here you can find ideal conditions for the growth of vines, thanks to steep vineyard slopes and rough rocky ridges. The soil is rich and diverse, consisting of slate, volcanic rock, loam and loess. However, the winemakers face great challenges, as the steeply terraced vineyards require extensive cultivation. The region is characterized by mighty castles and palaces along the Rhine Valley as well as picturesque villages with traditional Straußwirtschaften - an experience full of legendary Rhine romance. The Upper Middle Rhine Valley has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002 in recognition of this unique cultural landscape.
