Frankfurt is a very international city, that offers many opportunities to discover new wines, scents and traditional food from all over the world.
One out of many options that you have on a beautiful September day in Frankfurt, is to take a bike ride along the Main river.
The Städel Museum has a incredible collection of European paintings from the 14th century onward. The beauty of this collection will drag you into a dream. Walking through the galleries is an experience that is very similar to when you remember a dream, for a few seconds, before being woken up.
You can pair this experience with one of the Germany’s dry Riesling white wines.
We tried this Rheingau / Winkler Dachsberg. An intense, but delicate scent of saffron, raspberry and fresh white flowers. A dry and unusual taste, that brings you back in time, to the different scenes that have been painted over the centuries.
We brought two more labels home, from the airport shop, and they where good too.
Dry Riesling Trocken white wines are very particular, and perfectly match a spicy, light dish.
We paired one with a Risotto with saffron and scampi, slightly spicy:
We paired it with an artisanal pasta with Peperoni Friggitielli, one of the few fresh vegetables available in September. We made our pasta a bit spicier by adding hot chili pepper.
Now sipping your German Riesling Trocken, enjoy more beauty from the Städel Museum:
