So far, I've really enjoyed every wine here - and I'm very picky!
We start the day in Müllheim, the "wine capital" of the Markgräflerland, in the very southwest of Baden-Württemberg. Enjoy a stroll through the town centre and take in the Markgräfler Museum.
For lunch, visit the "Messer und Gradel" restaurant in Müllheim.
Continue along the Baden Wine Route to the beautiful Fauststädtchen Staufen. Stroll through the old town with its alleys and small "bächle" (brooks). A climb to Staufen Castle is highly recommended, rewarding visitors with magnificent views over the vineyards and the Black Forest.
The small, stylish Bahnhöfle in Staufen lavishes its guests with traditional Baden food and wines with a modern twist.
On the second day, we head to Kaiserstuhl, the sunniest, warmest region in Germany. Visitors are greeted by unique flora and fauna, which you can learn about at the Kaiserstuhl Nature Centre in Ihringen.
In the small wine village of Bischoffingen, Stephan & Christina Köpfer provide a big smile at lunchtime in "Köpfers Steinbuck" with a great view of the surroundings.
A visit to a winegrowers' cooperative or winery is a must and the superb Kaiserstuhl wine is a great souvenir.

Breisgau and Ortenau
Heading once again to the Black Forest, we reach the slopes of the Breisgau wine region. One of the most famous towns is Ettenheim, where you can still feel the baroque era. Enjoy a great view of the region from nearby Heubergturm tower.
The route continues through smaller and larger towns in the region, until joining the Ortenau wine region south of Offenburg. The wine route now takes a charming detour into the Kinzig Valley. At the entrance to the valley, the Nature Park Market Barn in Berghaupten invites you for a stopover.
In the afternoon, we suggest a stroll through romantic Gengenbach with its alleys and large market square.
