During the Pentecost weekend, more than 20 winegrowers and cellars in Luxembourg’s Moselle Region open their doors during “Wine Taste Enjoy”. This was the first year we went and it was the perfect experience in tasting different wines and crémants.
There was a free shuttle but driving between the different villages from Grevenmacher till Schengen. We didn’t really have a particular plan for what we wanted to taste, so we decided to start at Ahn.
In Ahn, we visited a number of winegrowers. We started with a crémant at Caves Berna. The perfect way to start the day: it was a tasty crémant, perfect as an aperitif. Not to harsh but a subtle taste.
Next stop was J.P. Steinmetz-Duhr where we not only enjoyed crémant and pinot noir wine but also had an amazing Boeuf à la vigneronne. Here we stayed to enjoy a number of wines: Crémant, Pinot Noir Rosé (my favorite of the day) and Symphonie En Blanc. It was lovely to enjoy our wines outside in the beautiful garden.
We continued to Jeff Konsbrück and again tasted some crémant. This one wasn’t as gentle as the one we had at Caves Berna, but would be perfect to drink during the evening, enjoying the sun.
We also wanted to try some liquors, so we walked to Distillerie Diedenacker in Niederdonven. Seeing all the different liquors and gin, we wanted to buy some as a gift for Father’s Day. The one that really stood out was the fir needle liquor: sweet but spicey and a very special taste.
We ended the day in the most known place of all: Bernard-Massard. Although they are most famous for their crémants, they also have some very good Pinot Noir. Especially during the summer, a nice glass of Pinot Noir is perfect for your next bbq. This has become one of my favorite wines to drink during summer.
This day of wine and crémant tasting was perfect to get acquainted with the different wines of the Moselle Region in Luxembourg. We only stayed in one village because there were so many things to taste there.
Will we be back next year? Definitely. And then we could bring some of this delicious wines and crémants back with us.
