The wine press plant, 38 x 16 metres in size, dates from the middle of the 3rd century and is the best preserved plant of its kind. At the beginning of the 5th century, the plant underwent major modifications, e.g. a baking oven measuring approx. 2 x 2.5 metres was built from brick remains. After destruction by invading Germanic tribes in the 7th century, the remains of the walls serve as enclosures for several graves, one of which was occupied four times in succession.
During the construction of a parking lot in 1998, another wine press plant was found not far from the first plant. It is about 100 years older and is currently the oldest evidence of Roman viticulture on the Moselle.
A fixed rope route leads up to the steep slopes and gives you an idea of how arduous the work in the vineyards used to be and still is today. The Roman wine press plant offers not only insights into antique wine press technology, but is also equipped with an event room used all year round.
