Wine Tourism 2.0
Have you ever had the experience of ariving in a small German town full of wineries and asking yourself, “what do we do now?”
With over 9000 wineries and wine producers in Germany, trying to figure out which wineries welcome walk-ins and which wineries offer tourist-related activities can be very confusing to visitors in a wine region. We -the OpenDoorWineries – are trying to change that by creating a network of like-minded wine producers, wine educators and wine tour operators that follow certain criteria in creating and communicating regular offers for visitors to our beautiful wine regions.
What is OpenDoorWine Tourism?
Fee-based, structured wine experiences, wine tastings and wine tours offered on a regular basis by wine producers , wine educators and wine tour operators. Also known as “cellar door” tourism in New World wine regions.
How do I participate in an OpenDoorWine experience?
Our network of particitipating businesses is still in the beginning stages and is growing constantly. We hope to eventually have a system of symbols (reservation only, walk-ins welcome etc) , a map so that you can create a route, and other materials. Until then, please check out the links below to see what wineries and tour operators are offering (links are only in German as of yet).
For those who like to plan (offers by reservation): choose a winery (see list below), choose your wine experience and book online or make an appointment.
For the spontaneous among us (walk-ins welcome): Check out the winery’s website to find out opening hours and whether they offer tastings, flights or a weekly tour, and off you go!
As soon as we have a more professional system for booking and finding offers… we’ll let you know 🙂
