LuxePrivé awards this a Culinary Crown

Best Gourmet retreat

Easy reach of Frankfurt

Top Gourmet Festival

Set in the picturesque Rheingau region, just a half an hour outside Frankfurt, lies LuxePrivé's choice for Top German Dining Establishments. We select this not only for its own refined cuisine, courtesy of young talent Chef Simon Stirnal, but for hosting here its highly revered annual Rheingau Gourmet & Wein Festival. It gathers a stellar selection of top class Chefs, many German, like the 3-Michelin starred Christian Bau) as well as some notable International names. On LuxePrivé's visit we had the great pleasure of meeting with Pierre Gagniare, who's culinary whizzardy created just for that one night left us mesmerised, as well as a dinner by Itanian Supremo Simone Zanoni that showcased the flavours of the Med to their fullest. At each dinner during the fornight, a different celebrity Chef pairs their dishes to the fine wines on offer. Often around 8 tastings are poured throughout the 4 course meal, and include both famed international labels as well as the local reisling varietals. These come with an introduction by the wine maker themselves who are present at a nightly changing roster, allowing guests to pick and choose which of the remarkable wines and the matching plates, paired and prepared by the Chefs, they wish to delight in. When we visited we experienced remarkable examples of the tocken (dry) reisling variety, their minerality, crisp yet lingering finish pairing exquistely with the savoury dishes. As part of the Gourmet festival, factor in too the daily wine tastings and special dining events, hosted by famed Caviar and Champagne houses and you have a date in the international diary culinary not to be missed! As for stays at the hotel, all year round this is an oasis for those seeking tranquility. Set in serene parkland and on the boarder of the Rhine, it is within easy reach of notable vineyards, castles and forts. We were sure to visit breathtaking cultural monuments such as Schloss Johannisberg (Johannisberg Castle), Kloster Eberbach (Eberbach Monastery) and Schloss Vollrads (Vollrads Castle). A German Gourmet treasure!
