The Boppard Hamm wine region is one of the largest in Europe. It lies between Boppard and Spay in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley in Germany. This section of the Rhine River is known as The Rhine Gorge and has been a World Cultural Heritage of UNESCO since 2002.
The river does a bend here and shields the damp west wind creating a great climate for growing grapes. As our ship cruises though the river bends you can see miles of fields like this and people picking grapes by hand.
