“You will be served where the branches are hanging": The Rheingau vintners hang branches at the front door to welcome the locals and their guests into their wine taverns. An invitation to enjoy a glass of wine, chat, and relax. Forget the daily grind, lean back, and leave your worries behind.
But the region has much more to offer than good wine. Numerous restaurants offer a wide choice of culinary delights from Rheingau specialties to international cuisine. Culinary and cultural events as well as numerous traditional festivals and wine markets complement the wide variety and let you feel the warmth and hospitality of the region.
Typical dishes are: Spundekaes (cream cheese mixed with onions and spices), Lauchtorte (leek tart), Wisperforelle (fresh trout from the Wisper River, which flows down the Taunus Mountains into the Rhine River).
Rhine food specialties entice the palate – from hearty fare to fine cuisine. Choose for yourself – do you prefer the cozy atmosphere of a wine tavern or the posh ambience of an elegant restaurant? Special highlights are Rheingauer Schlemmerwochen (Rheingau Gourmet Weeks) in May or the Glorreiche Rheingautage (Glorious Rheingau Days) in November.
