Trier is known as the oldest city in Germany, founded by the Romans around or before 16 BC. The vineyard-covered university city lies on the east bank of the Mosel and has been producing wine for as long as it exists.
Not too far from Porta Nigra- the best preserved Roman city gate- and across from the Cathedral, is the city’s largest Weinstube, with its cellar right underneath the City Hall. The adjacent wine bar has a gorgeous garden, which happens to be City Hall’s garden, is a favorite hang out spot amongst locals and visitors.
It was there that I had my first Federweisser, a young wine that’s mostly must. Almost like a grape juice with about 4%alc that’s not entirely fermented. Sounds complicated, goes by many different names, but nonetheless delicious. It’s worth googling both Federweisser and Trier.
