The Erlebnisweingut Zahn, a wine-growing estate that is also a top attraction, not only stands out due to its stunning location by the river Saale. It also impresses guests with its culinary diversity, regional specialities and extraordinary events such as picnics, crime fiction readings, hikes or yoga by sunset in the vineyards.
A large summer terrace overlooking the glistening water of the Saale invites visitors to sit and relax. Next to this terrace you will find the restaurant, which features a wine bar, a large fireplace lounge and a tasting room. The family-managed company, which is now being run by the third generation of its family of owners, is one of the leading wine-growing estates in the Saale-Unstrut wine-growing region. The estate’s cellar master, André Zahn, is responsible for the ageing of its wines while Elvira Zahn-General and Torsten General take care of its catering and marketing activities.
The family places high value on freshness, regionality and cuisine produced in harmony with the seasons. Some of the restaurant’s seasonal highlights therefore include its Easter lamb, fresh asparagus straight from the field and autumnal delicacies such as mushroom dishes and sweet Federweißer wine served with a hearty slice of onion cake. In the summer, the Weingut offers a real treat for the taste buds in the form of freshly grilled Thuringian trout form the Forellenhof trout farm in the town of Rust. Other highlights at the estate run by the Zahn family include picnics in the vineyards, culinary wine-tasting sessions and yoga by sunset with sparkling grape juice and wild herb salad.
