Eltville, situated on the Rhine River about 45 kilometers west of Frankfurt, is a microcosm of old Europe. The nooks, crannies, bends, and cobbles of its quaint historic core are the tangible residue of those three most powerful institutions that dominated life in the Rheingau for a thousand years; the Catholic Church, the Prince-Bishop of Mainz, and the winegrowing nobility. Not unlike Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia, Eltville’s streets were once passageways between and within the town’s imposing structures, including the estates of von Eltz and Langwerth von Simmern, both former holders of prime vineyards in the Rheingau.

Prachtig verslag.

Life is always better when I wine.

Koken is meer dan een recept.
