Schloss Johannisberg

I needed to get a wine present yesterday and since the weather was so beautiful and the sunset started, I decided to drive up to Schloss Johannisberg. It is located on a hill in the "middle" of the Rheingau, overseeing the Rhine River valley.

It also has the oldest winery of the Rheingau - founded 1100 by the Benedictine monks (the basilica of the monastery is still there - on the left of the castle from this viewpoint). And of course they have a nice "Vinothek" (wine shop) where I got my presents.

Its a nice road for a walk or jogging but I bet thatit will look much better in spring or summer!

Now that path entices a nice long and lazy stroll. I'd like to see where I would end up. Looks like I'd need my gloves though!
