We totally enjoyed strolling through the old street, lined with wineries. Most of them open during the entire weekend, selling wine and food and entertaining guests with music and bands. A wonderful relaxed atmosphere! Lots of figtrees, oleander bushes, wisterias and of course vines adding to the special flair.

The little but famous village of Forst is situated between Deidesheim to the south and Bad Dürkheim to the north. The early beginnings date back to 1100 and still today only about 850 people live in this picturesque place. The center of the village is one street of ca 1200 m length. Around the village some of the most famous vineyardsof the Pfalz are found, like i.e. Kirchenstück, Freundstück, Ungeheuer, Pechstein und Jesuitengarten. A total of ca 175 hectares are under vines, of which ca 90% is Riesling. This and more info: http://www.forst-pfalz.de/
At VDP Weingut Acham-Magin we enjoyed some food and a (dry) Riesling-Schorle. Schorle= wine mixed with mineralwater. So good, light and refreshing!
