WALK LIKE A LOCAL
A somewhat different wine hike! Participants can expect a smartphone-guided hike and a small, personal wine tasting at magnificent viewpoints. Guests can explore the sights of our region at their own pace and take away a lot of interesting information, presented in a playful manner. With this unusual idea, Kai Climenti won the 1st Rheingau start-up prize in his category in the autumn of 2020. Ideal in these times: The tour can be taken from groups of just 2 people.
