In the Vinothek 160 wines can be tried (for a cost of 18 EUR per person)... I probably tried about ten... but couldn't find a really good quality wine. On the other hand, I also visited a few wine makers as well, and the wines offered there were always good. When I tried the more wines f these wineries in... More

The Bernkastel wine museum & visitor centre is pretty much what you would expect. It appears to offer an English option on its audio visuals but few of them actually seem to work. The wine tasting does make the visit worthwhile though !!

Wineries are a little different in Germany – we found "walk-ins" are not generally welcome and making appointments is not easy either. Thankfully there is this place – a wine cave that houses all the wines in the valley (over 140). For 20 Euro you can taste as many as you want. Easily located and a great deal.

If you're new to German Mosel wines this is a great place to start. It has a fantastic selection from along the valley but mainly concentrates of the Middle Mosel. There are always some wines to taste and the prices are reasonable. The display case in the cellar has older wines on display for sale such as 1975 and 76... More

A must-do whenever we are in Bernkastel-Kues is a visit to the Vinothek of the Cusanus Stift. This time we also took the visit to the Stift again before enjoying the vast variety of local wines - leaving with only 2x6 bottles of excellent product from the Mosella region. What is nice: for a (rather) small sum you can taste... More

This was an optional excursion during our Viking River Cruise and was an extra 39Euro per person. It was worth every penny. Our tour started with a brief walking tour of the town of Bernkastel.
