THE aire with THE wine is Hans Fassien's place at Mehring.
Not sure what you mean Brian?
We were in the campsite next door on a Crossings motorhome tour, the campsite was a dump and Nick and I both thought the Aire looked much better! Not impressed with Crossings either, but that's a whole other story.
Best aire on the Moselle, in Mehring. Owned by the vinyard you park in and if you ask nicely the owner will sell you some of the best wine in Germany. Certified by FUNsters.
We used the campsite last year, they parked us away from all the "permanent" vans, we were next to a field with deer in at the opposite side of the site from the aire, beside a couple of pods. The site had lots of fruit trees and the cherries were spot on, bit too early for the peaches though. Toilets and showers were fine and the couple who ran the place were very friendly. The German on the next pitch had come back from Scotland and was keen to share his collection of malt whiskies with us and a young Dutch couple were interested in the story of Val's grandfather who emigrated from Holland under a bit of a cloud ! So on the whole, a good experience for us.
Edit, just checked the Captain's Log and the site was called Camping Schenk.
I can picture where you mean, unfortunately we were with the semi derelict permanent ones! We had just come from Rudesheim which was beautiful so I think that spoilt us. There was also a yucky chap who combined dish washing with emptying his cassette plus showering so if you timed your washing up wrong, he'd be in shower and would leave his toilet cassette by the washing up sinks with his crockery on top.
