Esslingen is a wine town through and through. In 1486 the town council declared that “the trade of the town was based entirely on wine” and in the late Middle Ages the “Esslingen bucket” was the measure used for wines; about 300 litres. If one really wants to get to know Esslingen and its wine, one has to experience their tastings.
