Tour Information


Overview
  • Spätburgunder or Gewurztraminer doesn't roll easily off the tongue, but both these German wines do flow very well down your throat. Join us on a grape escape to try the best Geman wines in the Mosel, Pfalz, Rheingau & Rheinhessen.

    When it comes to the world of wine Germany has been in the wine game since the Romans and offers some of the world's most elegant and aromatic wine varieties, most notably for the noble Riesling. But getting your hands on a bottle outside of Germany can be hard to find. The regions best-kept wine secrets are rarely exported as locals love every last drop. This is why Weinköpfe exists. We believe wine was made for sharing. Our German wine tours aim to share with you the best quality wines, most beautiful views, historical sights and culinary delights the regions of Germany have to offer.

The tour was tailored around our tastes. We came away feeling very educated on Riesling. We went places we would never have found on our own. Driving through the vineyards on bike trails was magnificent.

I extended my stay in Frankfurt for one more day after i read the reviews of Carl trip, and its really really worth it. I have no enough words to explain that tour, simply CARL is a 7 stars tour guide. we started the journey with Champaign opening, had an amazing conversation along the trip he knows everything about the wine and growing it, we visited the wineries as planned tried the wines and listened to the stories, toke me to sightseeing also, and we had traditional lunch in front of the Reine. Finally he dropped me back to the hotel and gifted me a bottle of wine how nice was that.

I only had two days for leisure as I was in town for business later in the week and looking for something fun to do before then. This was easily the highlight of my trip. Carl is the guide and he's great. He reached out to me one week before the tour to get an understanding of what types of grapes I liked and understand my level of wine knowledge. Based upon the feedback from me and his other guests, he then designed the trip. The tour started off with some sparkling Riesling and a 20+ minute drive out to the Rheingau. During that time he shared with us the history of the region and his backstory. From there we were off to our first vineyard which focused on the traditional Rieslings. After that we went to a second vineyard which also had Rieslings along with some other varietals and blends. After a few hours of wine tasting, we needed some food and had a lovely lunch at a spot that overlooked the Rhine. Finally we capped the day with a third vineyard an enjoyable ride home. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and would take another tour with Carl. Great time, great wine.

Carl did an incredible job picking amazing small wineries for us and was a great host. My friends and I all had a wonderful day, drank amazing wine, and discovered how much we’ve been missing out on German wines. Could not recommend a tour with Carl enough!

Carl was right of time picking us up for our personal tour; we visited three unique wineries and also had an excellent lunch. He was so knowledgeable, personable, and just all around lovely. Our tastings were tailored and absolutely perfect. Lunch was outstanding. I can not recommend this enough, you really need to do this!

First off I will say a day spent with Carl will not be a day wasted. He is awesome and by the end of the day my wife and I felt like lifelong friends. Great tour. Carl has done his homework and knows lots of locals that offer a very personal experience. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommended and If my wife and I ever go back, we will book the tour just to see Carl.

We would absolutely recommend trusting a day of your vacation to Carl. He is very knowledgeable, personable and fun! He even adjusted the schedule to accommodate a visit to a winery that we were interested in. He took us to a mix of old and new wineries to make sure we experienced a variety of the offerings from the region. I feel so strongly about our positive experience, that I'm going back a month later to make sure my review posted.

Carl was an amazing tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about wine and the region. He went out of his way to ensure that we not only went to wineries specializing in wines that I liked but also to make sure I got to try different varieties of German wine. His personal relationships with the people at each winery made the tour above and beyond in my mind. Would highly recommend this tour if looking for a well rounded, enjoyable day in the wine region!

This tour was amazing! Carl was so friendly and knowledgeable about the wine and the area.

We went to 4 wineries and each one was better than the last. This is the wine trip you need to go on!

(English Version below) Ich habe diesen Ausflug als Geschenk für meine Eltern gebucht und war von den vielen positiven Bewertungen begeistert. Nach den Schilderungen über den Ablauf empfinde ich das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis als sehr unangemessen. Es wurden vier Weingüter besucht und jeweils Weinproben durchgeführt. Hier wurden je nach Weingut teilweise Erläuterungen von den Mitarbeitern des Weingutes gegeben und teilweise nicht. Diese Besuche und Proben können üblicherweise sonst unentgeltlich durchgeführt werden, da sie im Wesentlichen eine „Verkaufsveranstaltung“ der Weingüter darstellen. Mit Blick auf den Preis des Ausflugs, wäre meine Erwartung gewesen, dass der Guide des Ausflugs Erläuterungen/Informationen beiträgt und sich nicht nur auf seine Rolle als Chauffeur beschränkt. Selbst der Transport war inakzeptabel, da berichtet wurde dass der Fahrer an den Weinproben vollumfänglich teilgenommen hat. Ich betrachte es als NO-GO, dass der Fahrer während des Ausfluges Alkohol trinkt. Leider hatten wir nicht beachtet, dass aus der Beschreibung hervorgeht, dass der Ausflug ausschließlich auf Englisch stattfindet. Daher müssen wir feststellen, dass der Ausflug für nicht-englisch sprachige Teilnehmer offenbar nicht geeignet ist. Entgegen der Angaben des Ausflugs wurde kein Fährticket gebraucht (denn es fand keine Fährfahrt statt) und auch kein „Eintritt Rhine Valley“ (denn das Rheintal ist ein freizugänglicher Landstrich) wurde benötigt. Als Fazit kann ich nur feststellen, dass dieser Preis nur für die Dienstleistung herumgefahren zu werden reine Abzocke ist. -- ENGLISH VERSION -- I booked this trip as a gift for my parents and was very excited about the many positive reviews. After the descriptions of the trip I find the relation between price and value very inappropriate. Four wineries were visited and wine tastings were held. Depending on the winery, some explanations were given by the employees of the winery and some were not. These visits and tastings can usually be done free of charge as they are basically a "sales activity" of the wineries. Regarding the price of the tour, my expectation would have been that the guide of the tour would contribute explanations/information and not limit himself to his role as chauffeur. Even the transport was inacceptable, as it was reported that the driver took part in the wine tastings in full. I consider it NO-GO that the driver drinks alcohol during the tour. Unfortunately, we hadn't noticed that the description shows that the tour is in English only. Therefore we have to state that the tour is obviously not suitable for non-English speaking participants. Contrary to the information of the excursion, no ferry ticket was needed (because there was no ferry trip) and also no "Rhine Valley entrance" (because the Rhine Valley is a freely accessible region) was needed. As conclusion I can only state that this price is pure rip-off to only be driven around for the service.

We took the tour in May and there were 4 of us, my wife and a couple from Hong Kong. The guide Carl was really on top of everything with a lot of energy, really made it a wonderful experience. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotels. This area is known for white wines which is what we expected, but I must admit I prefer red wines given a choice. I enjoyed the white wines we sampled which may have expanded my palate. And Carl made sure we found some red wines from the area which are based on the Pinot Noir grape which was new to us, Spatburgunders are a great red from Germany! The scenery was great and Carl accommodated our desire to stop and get some photos of the country side.

What a fantastic and memorable day with friends trying new wines! What I liked about planning this tour was that it's flexible. Carl, our guide, asked a lot of questions up front to gauge what our interests were and made recommendations from there. We weren't on a strict schedule and were free to take our time and explore the wineries we visited. We even swung by a wine festival that was happening in the area! Carl provided first-class service from beginning to end. We were picked up in his lovely SUV, which was packed with water, fresh pretzels and pastries, and to my surprise - a bottle of sparkling wine. We sipped bubbles as Carl gave us the plan for the day and some background about German wines. Carl fielded all my questions (and I ask a lot). He's a fountain of wine knowledge! The places that we visited were all unique. It was great to see and taste the variety. We toured cellars from the high tech and chic to the older, more traditional cellars. We met owners and winemakers, and tried wines that varied from the affordable to the highest end. This was a complete, full-day experience and well worth the price. This isn't a large group tour where you're herded around, but more like a trip with your German friend who happens to know all about wine (and offered to drive)!

Carl picked us up at the Mainz HBF and had a lovely sekkt ready to pop for our journey -- an excellent sign that this was going to be a fun day. He took us to picturesque spots in the vineyards, beautiful wineries, and a supercool Vinothek in Rudesheim. We even stopped at a wine festival in town. If you like variety in your tours, this is one you will love. Carl was knowledgeable, funny, and is one of those people who feels like your best bud within 10 minutes of getting to know him. The tour he has curated is above and beyond any tour I've taken. He even emailed us in advance of our tour to make recommendations for the Wine Festival we were going to the night before (we were in it to win it that weekend), and after the tour he emailed with several recommendations for my upcoming Amsterdam trip. This was one of the best tours I've ever had and I can't recommend it enough!

Carl was my guide for this wine tour. It worked out that it was just he and I all day, therefore he was more than willing to accommodate my needs and wants. Carl picked me up at my hotel, he was great company for our journey to the first wine tasting. We talked about all kinds of subject matter besides just wine. We visited 3 different wineries, all three were outstanding and well chosen by Carl based on my interest. i would recommend this tour and Carl as a guide to anyone who wants to explore and learn more about Germany's wine production.

Carl is an awesome tour guide. He is so friendly and warm. He made me feel very welcome and gave me so much attention, I felt like royalty. The vineyards were tastefully selected, the amount of time set aside for each stop was just right and photo opportunities were always presented in picture perfect locations. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in wine and value!
