Now is the time for Saale-Unstrut mulled wine
When the cool weather makes you want to stay in the warm room and light cosy candles, the Christmas spirit is quickly in the air. We in Saale-Unstrut prefer to celebrate the cosy Advent with the heart-warming version of our grape juice: Saale-Unstrut mulled wine.
Hot and white Willi - Saale-Unstrut mulled wine in red and white
The Freyburg Winegrowers' Association offers two special drops for all those in the mood: the "hot Willi" for those who like it red, and the "white Willi" for those who prefer the white mulled wine.
On the 3rd of Advent, the grounds of the winegrowers' association are wrapped in a Christmas ambience. With products from regional suppliers and a festive programme, you can taste and experience an enchanting evening perfected by the elegance of local wines. For true enthusiasts, the sensitively lit wooden barrel cellar opens its doors.
... the one with the red cap - a visit to Little Red Riding Hood
Did you know that Rotkäppchen also makes mulled wine? It's even available in red, white and rosé. So a visit to the newly opened Rotkäppchen Erlebniswelt is also worthwhile in winter - and it's only a 9-minute walk from the Freyburg Winegrowers' Association. So you can easily combine a visit to both establishments. The sparkling wine shop is also open over the turn of the year.
Did you know that the new Rotkäppchen Erlebniswelt offers an interactive and playful way to get to grips with the subject of sparkling wine? You can learn more about the history and the traditional sparkling wine production process and indulge in a sparkling moment or two.
