Wine culture

When you’re coming into Trier, you can see from afar: the vineyards line the Moselle, Saar, and Ruwer Rivers - sometimes as broad vineyards, sometimes rising breathtakingly up the steep slopes. The mild climate and excellent soil in and around Trier have been the perfect combination for the world renowned wines from Germany’s oldest city. Trier wine was cultivated even by the Romans.
