Vintners have said the bridge will destroy the unique wine-growing environment of the south-west valley famed for its world-class Rieslings, as well as become an eyesore on an unspoilt beauty spot.

„We fear for the valley. It is going to be dead in 10 years‘ time,“ Knut Aufermann, a member of Pro-Mosel, an anti-bridge movement, said.

Opponents of the 10-column, mile-long bridge claim its presence will affect the soil quality and irrigation of the valley’s steep, slate sides, and cast an unwelcome shadow over the vines. Continue reading „wine-business-international:Wine growers warn of death of Mosel Valley“
