Markus Del Monego, international wine expert and world champion sommelier, believes the Palatinate is an up-and-coming region for wine. I would go even further and say the region has far more than excellent wine. It has a lot to offer tourists as well. So why not get a feel for Germany’s sunny south-western corner? Whether on foot or with the wind in your hair in a convertible, you are sure to find something beautiful. This special edition of the Palatinate Magazine gives you a whole range of ideas for every season and every taste. I hope you enjoy the magazine, and that you have a gr eat time in the Palatinate region.
