As we continued our journey south, the wines started to get sweeter and sweeter due to the warmer climate, vineyard position and soil composition. There were Kabinetts with RS of a Spatlese and higher. We love the Mosel Rieslings, but we quickly learned that we prefer them with a much higher acidity and much lower residual sugar than we were getting.
Bernkastel is a town located right in the middle of the Mosel and it is over 700 years old. It has a medieval market square surrounded by many well preserved half-timbered houses that today is home to restaurants and cafes.
Kues is just opposite the river. The wines are very well known, being viticulture and tourism their main industries. I couldn’t believe the buses loaded with tourists and the cobble stone streets full of souvenir stands. I had no choice but by a post card and move right along.
