This year we teamed up with members of the Kato and Jung labs to visit Ahrweiler, which is just a short train ride away from Bonn. We enjoyed hiking through the vineyards and having lunch in the old town. We finished the day with a visit to a winery, including a tour and tasting of some of the regional wines. The Ahr Valley is particularly known for their red wines. We are glad to having supported the local economy after the devastating flooding of the valley last year.
