If you’ve ever thought the Côte d’Azur seemed like paradise then you might be surprised by the allure of Lake Constance.
Situated in central Europe, the freshwater lake connects Germany, Austria and Switzerland. While the region is known for having a cooler climate, the moderating effects of the lake means that it can get positively balmy in the summer. This is perhaps why a surprising number of wine regions can be found along its shores.
Bodensee, as the area around the lake is known in Germany, is a region better known historically for its everyday drinking wines but with better winemaking over the years, it’s become a region where you can find real gems.
