Schloss Vollrads - Wine stand Oestrich-Winkel Reviews
Jun 17, 2007
Schloss Vollrads is a bit of a sprawling place. It sits on the hill overlooking what are presumably it's vines upon which presumably grow the grapes from which they presumably make their wine.
Yes indeed – as this is the Rhein valley any castle wouldn't be complete without making and selling it's own wine.
During the summer months (or at least when it's nice weather) the main outlet is a wine booth that sits at the top of the central courtyard. From here they serve a steady stream of bottles of their own wine, all of which come in their own distinctive bottles (made of straight edges rather than rounded) and sealed with a glass stopper which also act as a souvenir.
Most people opt to sit by the lake and gardens in the lower part of the grounds. This picturesque area surrounds some sort of tower come turret which comes complete with it's own moat and bridge. Picnic tables are distributed around this area so you can sit amongst the flowers and trees and sip your chilled white wine.
