Last year, we were aiming high; this year, in return, we went underground.
The little town of Traben-Trarbach straddles the river Mosel. Before the outbreak of World War One, it had been the most important trading center for wine – even more significant than Bordeaux. The traces are still visible in the fact that half the town has been hollowed out underneath giving space to huge wine vaults; one of which is the so-called „Vinopolis“. It may be used for a variety of events, among other things, for our own Christmas party!
How splendid when the scent of mulled claret, roasted almonds and cinnamon make the streets fragrant with Christmas. As you may easily realize from the pictures, we were immediately charmed by this remarkable Christmas fair underground.
A truly delightful evening and a location full of history!
All that remains is to wish you all sparkling Season’s Greetings and an especially glittering 2017!
