The best vineyard tour we have been so far! The guide, Andy, is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and most importantly passionate about wine and the vineyards. I thought that the little hike around the vines finished with drinking Sekt at the top in a great company was a highlight, but then it got even better! Food was delicious and wine pairing exceptional! Thank you Andy again for the tour and answering all our questions! It was really inspiring to meet a person that can so greatly pass the passion to the wine! Of course we have left with some bottles of wine from the winery and we are looking forward to enjoy it at our home with friends :)

We have gone on several winery tours in the past, but this one by far surpasses them all. There were many factors that made this one the best. The first was our phenomenal tour guide, Andreas. His amazing knowledge on both the history of wine in the area and the science behind wine making were superb. He delivers the information with great passion and in a very friendly way. Next, was the unbelievable food that his wife prepared for us and how the wine was paired with each of the four courses. Overall, between the walk through the vineyard and meal, the tour was an incredible 6 plus hours that just seemed to fly by.

It was great! Our expectations were more than exceeded. On the wine hike, Andreas told us a lot of interesting things about viticulture and production. The subsequent meal at the Basten winery with the associated wine tasting was also delicious and we were also able to learn some exciting things about wine tasting here. A successful day all round! A big thank you to Andreas & Gabi. Greetings from Cologne.

It was super informative & exciting. It was so much fun and not a bit too strenuous. Mr. Offinger always leads his groups through the vineyards with 100% passion. You notice that after the first few minutes. His wife's food was delicious too. We really liked it and it was so worth it. A huge compliment to the Offinger family & thank you for this great experience.

Absolutely delighted. The wine tour absolutely exceeded our expectations. We learned a lot. Andreas had an explanatory answer to every question. The food during the wine tour was also of a very high standard, thanks to Andreas' wife for this! Absolute recommendation :)
