If you don't believe that the Romans brought wine to the Mosel, then you should come here. And best of all, drink the "Piesporter Goldtröpfchen" right away!
EvThe Romans already made wine from the best vineyards of the Moselle. Their wineries were located at the foot of the vineyards and close to the Mosel, so that the young wine could be shipped without much effort. It couldn't have been simpler. This is why archaeologists also came across the remains of an ancient winepress in Piesport near the world-famous "Piesporter Goldtröpfchen" vineyard. It has been faithfully restored and partially rebuilt with mash and must tanks, a wine press and a smoke chamber. You can visit the site, which has an open protective structure. Once a year there is even a winepress festival with a demonstration of Roman winemaking based on ancient sources. Curious now? Then take the opportunity to taste the wine from the "Piesporter Goldtröpfchen" vineyard. Perhaps the reconstructed Roman wine ship "Stella Noviomagi" from Neumagen-Dhron will be passing by. But you really should combine your trip with a visit to the neighbouring village and learn a little more about everyday Roman life there.
