Learn about (and drink) wine at Eiskeller in Düsseldorf

First stop on our foodie tour of Düsseldorf was Eiskeller (“Ice cellar”) which was voted “Best Classic Wine Bar in Germany” in 2017 by Falstaff.  The cosy wine bar has around 250 different types of wine, mostly German but many from around the world as well.

Mosel Riesling wine Düsseldorf

Run by Dorina Sill and Klaus Wahlen, it was Dorina herself, who guided us through a selection of wines, which of course included a few Rieslings with my fave wine on the day being the Dr. Hermann 2017 Riesling from Mosel.
I’m now trying to track down a bottle in Glasgow or perhaps I should just go back to Eiskeller? 😉

The former ice cellar, where the name comes from, at the rear of the building provides a cool place (both literally and figuratively!) to hang out with friends and sample new wines.

Here, we found out about the different growing areas, styles and variety of German wine, which is way more varied than just Mosel Riesling, Blue Nun and Black Tower!

Since it was such a sunny day and us “weegies” wanted a tan, we ended our visit with some fizz in the wine garden (the pedestrianised street out front).  I could think of worse ways to pass the day!
