Eltville

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to tour the wine cellar of a 900-year-old monastery? Of course you have, and Kloster Eberbach in Germany’s famous Rheingau region is your opportunity to do just that. An active monastery from 1136 until 1803, and an active vineyard the entire time, Kloster Eberbach is not an average vineyard. While here, the Eberbach rieslings are a must try. Stay on the former monastery grounds in the 16th century mill and barn that have been humbly converted into a simple, yet warm guesthouse for visitors. Don’t worry, the monastic origin doesn’t mean your room won’t have a TV or WiFi. Make sure you hit the sauna while you are here for a bit of extra relaxation. And then maybe drink some water because wine and a sauna is the perfect mixture for feeling not so great tomorrow.
