THE RHEINGAU is a wine-region in the Hesse state of Germany. Travelling north from Wiesbaden (Hesse’s main capital), the River Rhine clearly demarcates the boundary of the Rheingau region.

I had the pleasure of staying in Oestrich-Winkel, a small town of about 11,000 in Rheingau, while visiting Danial who was studying there at that time. Aside from taking evening strolls down the lovely River Rhine and making new friends dining out in Wiesbaden, I managed to squeeze in a short trip to Rüdesheim on one sunny Spring afternoon. This area hosts many hilly vineyards, and geographically located along the stretch of Middle Rhine Valley – which has essentially made it to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 

Such bliss! Here’s a photospread:
