Catching Up ..... Bacharach

We spent Friday learning about Bacharach (am Rhein) from a history, tourism and wine industry perspective.  It was perhaps the perfect embodiment of the German Business & Culture approach.  Bacharach is an old, and one time very important city on the Rhein which has been the center of commerce for a very long time.  Currently Bacharach's primary commerce is tourism and wine (and the combo of both).  We got a walking tour of town and discussed how the city functioned in its different eras.  Then we got a glimpse into how Bacharach markets itself via a presentation by the Tourism Office director.  Lastly we took a gorgeous walk through the vineyards and met Cecelia Yost in her family's vineyards and learned about wine from a production and a marketing perspective.  Her passion for her family's business was contagious and inspiring.  They are considered a young wine maker as they have only been in business since 1831. 

Special Thanks to Dirk Scherschlicht (and his wife Ellen) from the Bacharacher Hof Hotel in Bacharach who organized one of the absolute highlight days of the trip!  Visit them at
