The Dönnhoff Vineyards in the Nahe Valley - evening and early morning

View from the steep vineyards across 
to the village of Oberhausen an der Nahe
with the river in the middle ground

 Glorious evening light in the vineyards 

The flowering in 2014 has been successful and even 
and everything is well advanced but still a while to go yet! 
Riesling of course!

 Nahe carrying its still cobbled road

quest to win the 2014 World Cup

 Helmut Dönnhoff: a backbone of steely determination!
 Helmut with Andrea Bulcock of ABS Wine Agencies organisers of the trip
and Dönnhoff's agents in the UK

 One of the local characters...

 The last rays of sunshine on the south facing slopes 

After a very long day we ate and drank (Dönnhoff naturally)
extremely well here
