A Recent Review of this tour

The Moselle region is all about wine and we visited one of the most famous brands in the UK which is Dr Loosen. This was the possibly the best presentation and really good detail on the soil / stone and the difference it makes to the taste of the various wines. We then had another wine tasting at Haart which was a 20 generation winery and we were made aware of how many (5000) wineries there are. Stan had really done his research and his choices were absolutely spot on. His knowledge is extensive.
