We’re not kidding – Venissa is an iNSIDE EUROPE’s favorite white wine lovers destination, right iN the Venetian Lagoon.
Close enough to the hustle and bustle of Saint Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge, but worlds away on Mazzorbo Island. You will taste one of the rarest and most unique wines in the world! Even better, stay iN the boutique hotel right next to the grapes and indulge at the onsite gourmet restaurant.
One of the rarest and most unique whites wines ever!
Prost from Germany
Locals Like it Dry + by the Pint!
Fun wine fact: The world’ largest wine festival takes place iN Germany and dates back to 1417.
Known as the ‘Wurstmarkt”, this event is a two week celebration of local wines, food and beer. There are rides, live music and an opening parade with lots of free samples!
Make new friends at the traditional stands or the upscale wine village where family-owned wineries present a wide variety of local wines. Included, is the Pfälzer Riesling being poured not just by the glass and into real glasses, but for the locals mainly into pints! The half-liter is served in a so-called ‘Dubbeglas’ with indentations to avoid slipping. These make great souvenirs and are a sure conversation starter.
How do you drink your Riesling?
Santé from France
Whether you like your Champagne 100 percent Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, or a combination of those three, a visit to the Marne Valley is a one-of-a kind pilgrimage where one must pay homage to artisan wine makers still honoring ancient traditions today.
In addition to the ‘Grand Maisons’ of Taittinger, Veuve or Dom Perignon, we propose to venture beyond the cellar labyrinth of Eparnay and Reims into the small villages dotting the Marne Valley. ‘Petite Maisons’ like Dom Caudron invite you to linger longer, sample cuvée after cuvée with cheese- or chocolate pairings, take a ride through the vineyards in an old timer while reminiscing about an old passion still very much alive today iN the Champagne.
Vintage or Non-Vintage, that’s the question?
Topa from Pais Vasco
Txakoli or Underwater Cellar Reds?
Spain’s Basque Country is an iNSIDE EUROPE favorite!
Home to some of the countries best food birthplaces of heavenly Pintxos. Pais Vasco grows unique varietals that are even better when enjoyed with the locals, and them some.
While pouring Txakoli may get you some spritzes, or harvesting grapes iN Rioja Alavesa could get your feet wet and red, nothing beats deep sea diving for wine aged in underwater cellars iN the Cantabric Sea. If you’d rather stay on dry land, you can also opt for wine-tasting on the fishing boat with the wineries owner/marine biologist.
