A new generation of dynamic, skilled winemakers with a great feel for wine is fast changing the face of viticulture. In Rheinhessen, you'll enjoy food with a real sense of regionality served with a good portion of local colour.
Landhotel & Weinrestaurant Espenhof
The Gault Millau restaurant guide describes the Espenhof in Flonheim-Uffhofen as "quintessentially Rheinhessen, a gorgeous country hotel and ambitious wine restaurant with real flair." The former Feudner post house has always been the most beautiful building in the wine village of Flonheim. Its stone architecture, loving attention to detail and enthralling colour concept create a wonderful atmosphere in which to enjoy fine wines. This traditional, family-run wine estate and country hotel is situated on the fringes of 'Rheinhessen Switzerland' – an ideal base for wine lovers and active holidaymakers. And there is no better place to find out more about wine than the Espenhof vinothek.
