NextGen red wines, regional eats, nose-to-tail specialties and historical highlights on tap for Wine and Food Tour to Germany this summer

(TRAVPR.COM) USA - June 7th, 2013 - German Pinot Road Tour 2013 -- Not Your Mother's Kind of Wine. Not Your Mother's Kind of Wine Tour

German wine has grown up since the days of Blue Nun and Liebfraumilch. American wine drinkers have grown up too. Gone are the days of the genteel, white-glove wine tour. Today's wine enthusiasts are not only interested in tasting wine. They also want to discover and experience it.

This summer, a small band of wine lovers, foodies and locavores will get ahead of the curve and uncover a new generation of trending Pinot Noir wines on an insider’s wine tour to Germany.

The German Pinot Noir Road Tour will visit 15 top estates in the nooks and crannies along Europe’s least-known wine trail. The wine tour will also spotlight artisanal food and tooth-to-tail specialties. The dates are August 25 - September 1, 2013.

"German wines are not all white. They’re not all sweet. And they’re not all mass-produced,” said Tom Conrad, who will lead the Pinot Road Trip for Philadelphia-based Heart of Europe Tours.

“It’s not your mother’s kind of wine. It’s not your mother’s kind of wine tour,” he added.

Road Tour participants will get to know Germany's NextGen wines and experience them where they're made. They'll hang with the winemakers and hear their stories, meet their families and hike their vineyards. The wine tour is one part safari, one part study tour and 100% fun.

The wine tour is limited to a small number of participants. Information is available from Treasures of Europe Tours, at or by phone at +1 215 991 9892.

In addition to northern Bavaria and the Rhine area, the group will visit a remote valley in the Black Forest, an unusual vineyard with parcels on both sides of the German-French border, a small estate near Freiburg tended by an ardent “garage winemaker” who turns out magical Pinots, and a brace of up-and-coming family-owned Pinot vineyards in small villages tucked away in a faraway corner of Baden, in southwestern Germany.

The ancient Speyer Cathedral, the Medieval Jewish Quarter of Speyer, plus historical highlights in Wuerzburg and Freiburg are included in the tour.

Wine and food are part of the cultural heritage and people take the delights of the table very seriously along Germany's wine trail.

In addition to top-flight Pinot Noirs (Spätburgunder in German), the group will also be sampling artisanal eats and traditional tooth-to-tail specialties, including Saumagen, a soulful dish of sow’s stomach that pairs beautifully with Pinot Noir.

Wine enthusiasts, foodies and adventurers who sign up for the Pinot Road Tour will get a rare preview of regional gourmet specialties and NextGen Pinot awesomeness in August.

Space is limited and the tour is filling up.

Information is available from Treasures of Europe Tours,, or by phone at +1 215 991 982.
