NEUMAGEN-DHRON – Weinschiff

The quiet little wine-town Neumagen-Dhron is a close-knit community with a real ‘village feel’ and a friendly atmosphere that puts the visitor completely at ease. It claims to be the oldest wine village in Germany – and can prove it with the third-century stone carving of a wine-ship. The Neumagen Wineship dating from 205 A.D. was discovered, along with other Roman remains, in the village at the end of the 19th century. The sculpture is considered to be a part of a grave monument erected to the memory of a wealthy Roman wine trader and it bears witness to nearly 1800 years of wine making in this area.The original sculpture can be found in the State Museum in Trier.
