Mythos Mosel - A Riesling journey
Going into the fifth round already, "Mythos Mosel. Eine Riesling Reise" is held from May 26 - 27, 2018 along the middle part of the Mosel. 110 wineries coming from Saar up to the terrace-Mosel will present their best wines on this 20km riverside. Thirty stations will open their gates and host the wineries.
More than 3.000 visitors from all over the world (11 nations) came to experience and taste the myth of the Mosel region in June 2017. Not only wines but also the unique environment and diversity of old wineries made this event a unique experience. This success shall continue with this year´s event.
In 2018, the "Riesling Reise" starts in the small winemaking village Kesten and leads downstream to Zeltingen. Many internationally well-known wineries such as Willi Schaefer, Fritz Haag, Schloss Lieser, Markus Molitor or Dr. Loosen have already confirmed their participation. Furthermore visitors of Mythos Mosel will get to know new, young and enthusiastic winemakers that are ensuring a fresh breeze within the established wine scene. To make it easier for visitor to identify the young generation in 2018 the premiere of the “young talents” station will happen. This particular station will only host talents younger than 30 years. The event organized by the young winemakers association Moseljünger lives on the open-minded idea of melting all boundaries between different associations and organizations. To represent the Mosel as a whole and not a puzzle of different wine collaborations. No boundaries that is the spirit and the core of Mythos Mosel. This event is living proof that the current dynamics of the world´s largest steep slope winemaking area are vivid.
Thirty locations will open their doors. Each host has three guests from other parts of the growing region. Visitors are able to experience numerous different sites, terroirs and styles of the winegrowing region Mosel. As well as in lasts years` events a bus shuttle service will enable all guests to commute between the villages. The carefully chosen road allows visitors also to travel by bike or even walk between the villages.
Highlight of the event is going to be the exclusive opening celebration that will start Mythos Mosel on Friday night, May 25 in the now fully remodeled Schloss Lieser. Seven chefs and 480 big bottles (Magnum, Double-Magnum or even bigger e bottles) await their demanding epicures.
