Help save the Mosel valley!!

Do you like to enjoy a glass of some of the world's finest Riesling wines?

Then here is a chance for you to help protecting the wonderful Mosel valley. There are plans for a huge bridge to be build, crossing parts of the valleys, thus risking to influence negatively the area's very special microclimate and soils. Besides, it just plainly distroying the natural beauty of this important wine region and we won't let that happen!


Watch this film with two of the leading German winemakers, Prüm and Loosen, in an interview with one of Germany's two master sommeliers, Hendrik Thoma:




Here you can find the page to the petition (I'm afraid, it is in German only), where you can sign up against the project, even if you are not German. Please distribute this to all your friends and contacts. And even if you do not care about the valleys: millions of EU money is being put into this project... Time is running out by May 11, so we need all the help we can get!

Thank you for helping us saving some of the finest Rieslings there are!
