6:37 am
go out to the videos during joy the countryside. they prefer bright light to old time rustic oaks alice it's more fun to taste wine in a bright room and make it in these beautiful surroundings. you know people but then what is the challenges for modern wine growers the climate change the past few years were all very different lots of change we've had everything's fine weather high humidity like frost spring frosts and lots of precipitation extreme weather and we had to react specifically to that the challenge to deal with every year so that the grapes flourish and ripen well for. last month ones makes for a good year which factors have to come together to achieve and exceptionally good wine. like. this in the good of what's a good question basically the whole year has to be right the rain the sun doing the
6:38 am
work all at the right time whether it's tilling 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 you can too and i feel like the only right thing we can do right now is try a glass of your wine so some good that. you have the money we have already sling 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 these grapes grow better in germany than anywhere else in the world they develop the best aroma and the best flavors like what else you know. what is the smell like ok. but nonetheless.
6:39 am
he's looking at me like i'm completely around a few years each d.j.'s are. and i listen i want to read you need to smell at least 3 things in wine 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 is falling over the wine route and the really lovely day is coming to an.
6:40 am
ashtray god takes us along the moon but our journey begins in a mysterious. 1 while it's pretty dark down here pretty chilly too i'm intolerant on the missouri river the city is known for these on the ground cellar vaults. where are we what kind of cellar is this how this is where in one of the largest centers of the tartan tub under former wine cellar unfortunately they no longer use just such today. there are sellers under the whole of tartan tub because at the end of the 20th century it was a huge wine trading center people said it was the 2nd largest wine trading center in europe after bordeaux in france when in the year 890 s.
6:41 am
alone some 18000000 leases of wine made their way from here out into the big wide world. in the course of i today. the 1st thing all visitors notice the bus round is the bridge gate on the ms ill. at the beginning of the 19th century that was enough will be here to commission the well known berlin art nouveau architect bloom early he not only designed the bridge gate but also a number of villas. thanks part of the architecture characterize a stop and stop off to this day 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
6:42 am
be finding out why was no wines 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 muzzle 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 cleveland 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
6:43 am
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 nearby and 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 muzzle special how does it differ from other ones. 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 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 reasoning 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
6:44 am
a great mineralogy you. can't eat one. yeah it can but it won't taste very good. we're still too far from the harvest time so it won't be much of a treat you'll notice that the grapes are still pretty hard but if you want to try go ahead and. be on to one. or all like i said recycling ripens like. 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 yet and into the you know take. the shows me his wine shop where you can taste the fruits of his labor as a wine maker. what
6:45 am
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. to do with pleasure. so your health. void. delicious wonderful of 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. because 3 buy. it generally it has a slightly peachy aroma as is the case with many recently the nice really
6:46 am
characteristic thing about our riesling 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 water bodies are chiffon made stay that way. along the muzzle the cycle path runs on both banks of the river on route you can always find ferries to take you to the other side.
6:47 am
i still have a few kilometers to go before i'll reach my destination cook them visible in the distance is call them castle it looks old but only dates from the 19th century call them as just 5000 inhabitants but it's a much visited city. many mazola river cruises set off from here. i've got one last tip for you and cook them take the cable car off to the pinup 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 wanted 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.
6:48 am
as the final wind tunnel stops in dresden on the album. it's 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 the sex and 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 greece then via other boil all the way up to the town of my. the white fleet and greased i'm still as my own historic paddle steamers.
6:49 am
these days the ship stopped steams along the sex and wine route. one last look at grayson skyline then it gets rustic. after about an hour i go ashore in a fog the boy the city is the center of the sex and one 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 belong to the sex selectors and the most famous of them was the strong is said to have celebrated lavish wine dollars here
6:50 am

6:51 am
rewarded 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. must talk about says about 80 percent of all venison saxony do it as a hobby like he does as a boy he worked in his uncle's vineyard and later took it over the work is tiring but the wine is delightful. to most 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 like once this was how are you looked down on by the professional
6:52 am
wine growers. as you call them are special 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 the 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 wacko trying this. and this is a solaris. and then what is true 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.
6:53 am
