The city of Trier, Germany is an ancient one. The Romans used it as an outpost/capital, planting vineyards thousands of years ago.

“Weinsinning” translates roughly from the German into “wine intimately,” but a more colloquial translation is probably “wine obsession”. That’s the perfect name for a wine tasting shop that also happens to be a perfect place to learn about Riesling, the pride and joy varietal of the area. Weinsinnig is on a winding, hidden street off a main market square in town.
