Hosted by Dan McDonnal & Alix Bosch, Co-owners of De Tierra Vineyards

Dan and Alix share a love for adventure and travel, both having logged countless miles visiting many countries and learning about local customs and cultures along the way. Alix has lived in both Germany and France and is fluent in both languages. Dan has spent the majority of his life in the agriculture industry. Through their various journeys, they’ve developed a love of wine and especially enjoy finding small boutique wineries and rare or unusual varietals from around the world. Dan enjoys learning about growing and production techniques used in the many wine regions of the world. Alix enjoys experiencing the various styles and varietals found throughout the world. It seems only natural that both would end up settling in Carmel California and own a boutique winery of their own. De Tierra Vineyards reflects Dan and Alix’s passion for small production, premium quality wines that bridge new world techniques and old world style.

You’ll taste local cuisine, discover how wine is made and, of course, partake in tastings — all at no additional cost. Whether you have a seasoned appreciation for fine wine, or simply indulge in a sip here and there, this is a wonderful way to uncork the traditions of the local culture and learn about the region you’re visiting.

About the Wine Region – The Moselle, Main and Rhine

The Rhine along with its main tributaries - the Moselle and Main - have created a wine connoisseur's paradise, which can be discovered on our Vineyards of the Rhine & Moselle, Europe's Rivers & Castles, Enchanting Rhine, Captivating Rhine and Rhine & Moselle Splendors itineraries.

The Upper Middle Rhine’s slate soil combined with a semi-continental climate have proven to be a recipe for wine-growing success for the Rheingau vineyards, yielding high-quality white wine varieties, and some fine reds. Germany's Moselle River Valley yields some of the finest white wines ever produced due to its blue Devonian slate and quartzite soils. Alongside the Main River in eastern Germany, a wide variety of wines have been surfacing from Franconia due to its special soils and Mediterranean-like climate.
