Records date vinous activity at Schloss Vollrads back to 1211 but these Riesling specialists wear their 800-year history lightly, focusing on wines – and experiences – to make you happy. The fourteenth century moated tower is a beacon in the landscape of Oestrich-Winkel, on the banks of the Rhine River, which you can explore on ‘Relaxing Wine Rambles’ incorporating woodlands, nature trails and the all-important vineyards. Sample their fruits with paired menus at the estate’s restaurant, seated either within the palatial orangery or the seventeenth century squire’s house, with tastings held in the coach house. Culture is weaved into the very fabric of this estate, once visited by Goethe and now a venue for the annual Rheingau Musik Festival, open-air cinema nights and much more.
