Charlemagne wanted Burgundy, so it had to be grown back then!
The red wine town on the Rhine
Spätburgunder, Portugieser and Dornfelder dominate the twelve reds. When it comes to white grape varieties, Riesling and Silvaner are in the lead, and wines from Gelheim have won multiple awards. A special drop is the city wine cuvée "Carolus" in honor of Charlemagne. It is available from 14 winegrowers as well as the tourist information and the museum's visitor center. Recommendations for a visit to Ingelheim: wine tasting and shopping at the Ingelheim winemakers, red wine festival, wine mile.
