The weather is pretty grey while we drive along the river Nahe. It’s one of the first days of January. The sky is cloudy, raindrops are falling. No other car is driving with us. The Nahe is very different from the Rhine valley or the Moselle valley. Hardly any tourists. Only beautiful nature. In winter, it means that you can be alone on the streets. Silence can be a great thing. Everything fits: The nature. A region that feels down to earth. And a winemaker that is very focused on this nature and the unbelievable geology and needs of his vineyards.
There is a lot of great Riesling in Germany. But the rise of the Nahe region in the last years is really tremendous. The Nahe is a very beautiful river in the heart of Germany that forms a beautiful valley. Still not a touristic region like the Mosel – where in some time of the year you can hardly walk because of all the people – but it is really worth travelling there also because of ist beautiful nature and rocks.
