For more than 850 years, vines have grown on the sun-spoilt hills of the Saxon Elbland and provide delicious joys in glasses. In one of Germany's smallest wine-growing areas the grapes ripen until well into October and enable the vintners to offer a large variety of wines. In cool wine cellars, sunny garden restaurants and wine stores the guests can taste dozens of grape varieties, from Riesling and pinot blanc to Dornfelder.
The numerous wine festivals in autumn are an exceptional experience. They begin with the open vineyards days in Saxony, which take place at the end of August. Roughly 40 vineyards, vintner estates and wine taverns invite you for vineyard and cellar tours – wine tastings and vintner snacks in convivial company are guaranteed.
