Trier is Germany’s oldest town, settled by Romans for its location on the Mosel River and relatively mild climate. On the bluffs overlooking the city and bordering Luxembourg is the historic property of the aristocratic von Nell family, making Reisling wines since acquiring their lands during Napoleon’s time.
Currently the 8th generation is tending the lands, Georg Fritz von Nell. Down to earth and immensely charming, he drives a chartered bus into town to the local hotels to pick up people who wish to enjoy a wine tasting — all for only 10 euros!
I was happy to be hosted to be able to experience it.
