A few weeks ago, I attended the Esslingen Wine Walk with a few colleagues from work. I couldn't have asked for a better day, it was sunny and beautiful! Esslingen is about an 3o minutes train ride from the house. From the train station you can look up into the vineyards and see the people walking. After a short walk we were at the entrance of the wine walk. The path you walk runs right in the middle of the vineyards. As you are walking you have a wonderful view of the city below. Vineyards are below and above you. You start by buying a wine glass and a little lanyard which holds it (see below). Then along the way you have different stops to refill and try different wines. You can also get a stamp at every stand and when all stamps are earned you get a free glass of wine. I tried two different kinds of wine. The walk ended in the next city which is called Mettingen, which is where I caught the train to head back home.
