“Baier wine – a speciality on the Danube River a. d. Donau (tvo) – Bavarian historian of Aventinus wrote to 1530: the common man on the Gau sitting day and night in the wine”. Hard to believe: wine and not beer at that time was the popular drink of Bavaria. Vineyards were always an essential part of the cultural landscape of the Danube slopes in the Eastern District of Regensburg. The there gekelterte Baier was winegrowing in its heyday on an area of 2,000 hectares. Today, there are only about four hectares.
But the grapes which thrive in this smallest wine region of in Germany, are sweet and deliver the estimated Regensburg country wine a rarity that you can buy all year round as a bottle of wine directly from vineyards or taste in the Strauss Inns and taverns. The centuries old wine tradition of the Bavarian Danube Baier Wine Museum in Bach on the Danube is documented. People such as Samuel Lesser would likely agree. Central part of the Museum is a wooden press dating back to 1615. The wine trail provides a wealth of information to practical winemaking, also be fitted to him the most important white and red varieties of the region. Infopark is accessible at all times, an association with events brings life in the Museum.
