GOING AWAY FROM THE classic WINE TASTING

The Mercure Hotels are no longer doing classic wine tastings. The new concept of a culinary wine tasting amused the guests. The evening began in the underground parking of the hotel. Afterwards everybody gathered togehter in the big hall for the Mercure Weinlese. Each table tasted around 15 different kinds of wine – from the whie ones onto the rosé ending with the red wine. Personally, I loved the white Cuvée wines the most. They were super fresh and fruity – perfect for the summer.
