A request from ENAT Member, Dr. Peter Neumann
Dear colleagues,
We've just started a project about accessible wine tourism for a federal state in south-west Germany. The first step will be a short benchmarking study.
Do you know about any interesting case studies/ good practices, tourism strategies or already bookable tourist packages in the field of accessible wine tourism?
Thanks in advance!
Best regards
Peter Neumann
