Happy Mosel

Every year, many of the villages along the Mosel River participate in a festival called the Happy Mosel. The town shuts down the main road running right beside the river. On the other side of the river there is also a bike path. The path/road run for 40 km each way. All along the road and path are tents/stations/areas set up by different wine makers where those biking can taste the wines, buy the wines, eat some German food, etc. This was our first year biking it and it was a lot of fun! We went with our friends (pictured below): Brandy, Eric, Jeremy, and Sarah. We had a LOT (let's be honest.. TOO much) of fabulous wine, brats, and pommes. Good food, good drinks, good friends, and a great view of the vineyards and Mosel River.
