Fodor's Review

These hillside sparkling wine cellars were built in 1850 on a site where the Romans had cultivated vines and cellared wine. The Kupferberg family expanded them to create 60 seven-story-deep vaulted cellars—the deepest in the world. The winery has a splendid collection of glassware; posters from the belle epoque period (1898–1914); richly carved casks from the 18th and 19th centuries; and the Traubensaal (Grape Hall), a tremendous example of the art nouveau style. Tours of the cellars and museum last one hour plus time for a sparkling wine tasting. Reservations are required, either online at the Kupferberg Terrasse website or by telephone with the Tourist Service Center. The Kupferberg Terrassen restaurant ($$$) here is a lovely place to dine before or after your tour.
