From Trier we drove to Bad Kreuznach, passing by Weingut Hexamer in Meddersheim and Weingut Donnhoff in Oberhausen. We couldn’t make it to Schlossgut Diel, which probably would have been an overkill, since I don’t think I can handle this much wine at once.
While we were having breakfast at the hotel, we met Joseph. A restauranteur himself, Joseph took us to Weingut Sitzius, where I had one of the most amazing roasted vegetables of my life. Such a simple dish , but with unbelievable complexity of flavors. Or maybe it was just the wine that was drinking specially well that evening.
The next day we visited Weingut Dr.Crusius- another recommendation of Joseph. Pardon my ignorance, but I must admit that I hadn’t heard of Crusius wines until then. We were pleasantly surprised with the new discovery, and sad that we missed their annual Jazz Festival amidst the vineyards. I’ll save this as a good excuse to go back.
