12:36 pm
a historical monument. now we're on our way to our last stop for today the fair game winery close to london. everything under one roof. very modern. with a big production plant and a wine bar with a lovely outdoor terrorists. in the latin wine growing is still very much a family affair. inherent at the vineyard from his father 18 years ago. and. this is a stunning property it really sets itself apart from the rest of the region the modern design immediate. catches the eye why would you go for this kind of style. but i'm probably why i'm growing is changing we've looked to the rest of the world
12:37 pm
to me people want to go out to the vineyards do enjoy the countryside. and they prefer bright light to old time rustic oak cellars it's more fun to taste wine in a bright room and make it in these beautiful surroundings. lunch oftentimes people but then what is the challenges for modern wine growers that leave our climate change the past few years were all very different lots of change we've had everything fine weather high humidity late frosts bring frost and lots of precipitation extreme weather and we had to react specifically to that that's the challenge to deal with every year so that the grapes flourish and ripen well meant for. less money ones makes for a good year which factors have to come together to achieve an exceptionally good wine. like. this is good for that's a good question basically the whole year has to be right the rain the sun doing the
12:38 pm
work all at the right time whether it's telling the soil pruning the vines or picking the grapes you have to have a real knack for doing the right thing at the right time and we think that if we think it's through and i feel like the only right thing we can do right now is try a glass of your wife sounds good then. you have the money we have no he selling the king of the white wine varieties in germany let's start with that. why was why is the reason the king of wines why do the germans love their riesling so much. grapes grow better in germany than anywhere else in the world with very developed the best aroma and the best flavors like what else you know. what doesn't smell like ok. but nonetheless.
12:39 pm
he's looking at me like i'm completely wrong here's each he chester. and my reason i want to read you need to remember at least 3 things and one before trying it that's proving rather difficult with my rookie knows that i have detected something else. honey yeah yeah yeah. point for me i mean i know you're on your way to becoming a pro. night and falling over the wine route and the really lovely day is coming to an end.
12:40 pm
next lukash takes us along the moon but our journey begins in a mysterious. while it's pretty dark down here pretty chilly too i'm in top in taba on the missouri river the city is known for these on the ground solar ball. where are we what kind of solar is this one have is when one of the largest centers of the tartan tub under former wine cellar unfortunately they no longer use just such today that there are sellers under the whole of tartan tarbert because at the end of the 20th century it was a huge wind trading center people said it was the 2nd largest wine trading center in europe after bordeaux in france. in the year 890 s.
12:41 pm
alone some 18000000 leases of wine made their way from here out into the big wide world in the course of either then. the 1st thing all visitors notice above ground is the bridge gate on the result. at the beginning of the 19th century there was enough wealth here to commission the well known berlin art nouveau architect bloom really he not only designed the bridge gate but also a number of villa us. thanks part of the architecture characterizes top in taba to this state a great place to start my journey along the missouri. today i want to find out why the muzzle is one of the most beautiful river scapes in germany so i'm all for right along a part of them was ill psychopath from top to call him but that's not all i'll also
12:42 pm
be finding out why was the winds are so special. the nice thing about a bike path that runs along a river is that it's fairly flat at least as long as it's close to the water the most ill valley also offers a lot of beautiful panoramas but for those you have to paddle a little harder. but it's worth taking the detour up hill here for example are the ruins of cleaving book castle built in the 14th century it was repeatedly attacked destroyed and rebuilt until it was finally blown up in the 18th century from here i can get a fantastic view over the moselle valley. biking along the muzzle i can definitely recommend that most of the time you can
12:43 pm
ride along the water away from cars and streets through natural landscapes or small wine growing villages the river and the wind somehow they belong together especially near but it's where you'll find the probably the most famous vineyard in germany because of its steep slope i meet the wine maker. why is the wine from the most else especially how does it differ from other one in the sign. it's the soil. because we have these steep shale slopes the slate found at these elevations warms the vineyards slightly due to its dark color the slate stores heat which is a mid to the grape vines a little by little. that means it's always a little warmer up here on the hill than in the flatter areas and that helps the recycling most of all to ripen well because reece ling is a great variety that ripens relatively late but so here the recently matures nicely without acquiring too high an alcohol content and due to the shale soil it has
12:44 pm
a great mineralogy you know. how can i eat one. yeah it can but it won't taste very good. we're still too far from harvest time so it won't be much of a treat but you'll notice that the grapes are still pretty hard but if you want to try go ahead. into one. or all like i said recycling ripens late 5 in the lot it's still sour because there's still a lot of acid and not much sugar and we have other varieties that mature somewhat sooner and already taste great they'd have been better for a taste of it and don't be offended but just spit it out. out of the bin yeah it's going to begin to take up. shows me as one child where you can taste the fruits of his labor is a wine maker. what
12:45 pm
have we got. selected a wine for you recently of course from the vineyard we just visit it back and give it a try reasons and what. you did with pleasure. so your health. void. delicious wonderful and glad you like it and maybe you noticed the mineralogy i was talking about. well i'm not much of a wine connoisseur i could say that the wine is somewhere between sweet and sour what should i be tasting what is unique about this wine. generally it has a slightly peachy aroma as is the case with many reasons the nice really characteristic
12:46 pm
thing about our recent grown on the steep slopes is it's like mineralogist which makes it taste a bit salty if you let the wine dance around a bit on your palate it develops this characteristic quality and a certain lightness. even though it's quite mature it's a bit lighter and doesn't have such a high alcohol content. so that's what makes the mosul and its shale soils so special. and watered by these machines were made stay that way. along the result the cycle path runs on both banks of the river on route you can always find ferries to take you to the other side.
12:47 pm
i still have a few kilometers to go before i'll reach my destination caught them visible in the distance was cut from castle it looks old but only dates from the 19th century cookham is just 5000 inhabitants but it's a much visited city. many mazel river cruises set off from here. i've got one last tip for you in cookham take the cable car up to the pin up back. from there you have to hike a little further over the rock to the pier not quite so. this cross was put here in memory of a shepherd who want to save one of his animals from falling and died in the process . from this spot you have to hold panorama in front of you.
12:48 pm
the. final wind tunnel starts in dresden on the album. its early morning and the old town is only just beginning to stir waiting for the 1st tourists. you could spend days just going through the churches the museums. but i've got other plans i have a steam ship waiting one from greece turns white fleet. today i'm going to take you on a trip along with a texan wine route right wine route the name says it all and one of those ships down there is going to take me quite comfortably into the vineyards starting here in the eastern via how to boil all the way up to the town of my. the white fleet interest and still it's not in historic paddle steamers.
12:49 pm
these days the ship stops steams along the sex and wine route. one last look at greece and skyline then it gets rustic. after about an hour i go ashore in the fog the boy. the city is the center of the sex and wine route. the steep slopes the small palaces and the dry stone walls that's what the region is known for it is one of the smallest and northern most wine growing areas in germany most of the wine produced here is served and consumed locally. the oldest winery in saxony is the whole flue snit's it used to be long to the sec selectors and the most famous of them the strong is said to have celebrated lavish wine dollars here today organic wines are produced on the
12:50 pm
blue snit's which you can taste on the terrace. a jewel of sex in these vignettes is fuck about castle named after the count who had it built around 730. today it's the location of the saxon state vignette. i have an appointment at a winery called. the golden wagon one of the best locations in the heart a boy or a little girl is with us nice to have you here at the golden wagon. train ride back to moscow but is an innkeeper a tour guide and. he climbs the staircase many times a week he owns a little vignette next to the golden wagon go out of breath no no i'm in good shape . this keeps me fit. the long climb is rewarded
12:51 pm
with a spectacular view of the elder valley on clear days you can see all the way from the golden wagon to dresden and the czech republic by october most of the grapes have already been gathered only a few bunches are still on the vines tall must talk about says about 80 percent of all ventless in saxony do it as a hobby like he does as. the boy he worked in his uncle's vineyard and later took it over the work is tiring but the wine is delightful. to us in all these walls are they just ornamental or do they serve a purpose the walls are very important sacks and he's very far north for a wine region and we've got some problems with climate a wall like this soaks up the sun all day and stores heat like an oven and then radiates it back with mist as well as how are you looked down on by the
12:52 pm
professional wine growers. as in the poem recessional wine growers are glad to have the hobby vintners working to keep the countryside in shape they would not be able to handle it economically and steep slopes couldn't be maintained without the hobby vendors and if the vineyards fell into ruin the tourists wouldn't come and at the end the commercial wineries wouldn't be able to sell their wines any more. time for a wine tasting. still right there i brought you a flavorful drop from the golden wag. try this. and this is a solaris. and then what in truth does that remind me of. maybe pineapple. yes very good the pineapple note is quite pronounced. in here my white connoisseur you're learning i'm impressed it has to taste good that's the most important thing cheers.
12:53 pm
the steamboat takes me now from father boyle to my son. is the oldest ship in greece is white fleet it was built in $879.00 but 140 years later the engine is still running smoothly. now the town of meissen comes inside with its vignettes and castle hill. the market square is the scene of my son's action there is also a phone call it church of our lady. in addition narrow streets and lots of wine bars by the way the 1st vineyard and sex in the west documented here in meissen 850 years ago. and then again. climbing stairs but i'm already use
12:54 pm
that. the mice in cathedral is 80 meters high and 800 years old. the 2nd attraction up here is the book it's over a 1000 years old and is called the cradle of saxony. it was 1st built in 129 as a fortress defending against the slavs and later became the seat of sex needs. rooters in the 15th century it was converted into germany's 1st real palace with all rooms of living and working quarters. but the castle stood empty for some time the prince electress had moved to dressed in but it was here that i'll commit to you one for you found white gold in 7010
12:55 pm
europe's oldest porcelain manufacturer started production in the ugliest book. in the late 19th century the factory moved down into the town once again the book was renovated and given several murals depicting chapters from sex in these turbulent history which began here in mice. do you know what it takes to make a real castle. exactly a castle tavern even if the weather is not very inviting it's enough for a last look over my scene. i noticed one thing above all today most of the wine here is served directly in the taverns or at the wine growers on site that means if you want to try some of that
