On our October visit to the Deutsche Weinstrasse (German Wine Road in the Pfalz region) we discovered something we never tried before … Neuer Wein (or New Wine in English).
Near the beginning of the Wine Road outside Bad Durkheim, we came across a cute little town, Kallstadt, on Friday late afternoon at Happy Hour where Neuer Wein was flowing.
Neuer Wine, also known as young wine, is pressed just off the vine, has started to ferment and contains about 3% alcohol. It comes in red and white and its quite sweet, like drinking apple or grape juice.
What a great way to celebrate the wine harvest season. You could either have a glass at the road side Weingarten or fill up a jug from a local store.

Cheers to Neuer Wine!
