With the rain it was hard to see what was around, but the shape of the steepy vineyards gave room to the imagination. We were staying in a guesthouse right on the Mosel in Briedel, and arrived just on time to order a Sekt and chill on the porch overlooking the river. I wish I could stop time and live in that idyllic scenario forever.
The good news is that early in the morning we went straight to Graach, where we visited Weingut Kees Kieren. I had had one of their Rieslings before and went there knowing how good they were, however, I was blown away by the quality of their other wines as well as their sparkling grape juice!
Production is limited and rarely comes to the US, so the only way of tasting Kees Kieren wines is there, in Germany. Oh well, twist my arm.
