Die Drosselgasse in Rüdesheim am Rhein in Hessen, Central Germany. You will find pubs and wine bars here, very romantic place. :)
It’s a winemaking town in the Rhine Gorge and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area was settled first by the Celts, then after the turn of the Christian Era by Ubii; later by Mattiaci. In the 1st century, the Romans pushed forth to the Taunus. In Bingen they built a castrum; on the other side, near what is now Rüdesheim, lay a bridgehead on the way to the Limes. The Romans were followed by the Alamanni, and with the Migration Period (Völkerwanderung) came the Franks. Archaeological finds of glass from this time suggest that there was already winegrowing happening then. The town had its first documentary mention in 1074.
Went to a Portuguese wine tasting today. 🍷Feeling slightly tipsy at the moment. Bottle Shock popped up during the conversation.
Therefore, in honour of wines from countries other than France: Alan Rickman tasting Californian wine.
And because one can never have enough Rickman on one’s dash 😍.
