Vineyard "Sunny side upo the bridge" is our historic Heidelberg house vineyard with castle view. This steep vineyard is managed by our wine estate Adam Mueller in Leimen. Located on the eastern side of the philosopher's walk with less tourists and more intimate
Goethe, is supposed to have said, that this is the most beautiful Heidelberg vineyard in Germany.
A wine with a view
Once a year we invite to this very special event :
We walk up to the vineyard directly from the hotel and not only to kill some bottles, but enjoy sampling the latest Riesling and the Pinot noir vintages, whilst sharing secrets of the winemaker himself and exploring the impressive scenery. A delicate regional buffet with local specialities will accompany the wines. After that, we will walk down the hill to get some appetit and enjoy the woods. What follows is a sensoric dinner in the Le Gourmet with the wines from our winemakers.
Plan this day for enjoying wine from the roots to the glass - without the hard labour which is needed to harvest in this very steep vineyards. Good shoes are recomended and a certain fitness is needed. Reservation directly over the hotel reception. EUR 69 p.p.
Close by you even tread on former battle field ground from 1849, where the militia of Heidelberg defended in entrenchments against the advancing Prussians troups.
Ask for a picnic, which we will be happy to prepare for you and then enjoy a Riesling or a Pinot noir grapes from this vineyard staring at the magnificent view of the castle...
