From Porto along the Douro - To the land of port wine

Porto is famous for its port wine, but also for its nostalgic trams. The most popular is Line 1, the "Infante", named after the explorer Henry the Navigator. A very special railway line, the "Linha do Douro", also begins in Porto. The line runs along the Douro river in the middle of the wine-growing region, which has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is the only place where the grapes for port wine are allowed to grow.

Farm stories - Farming between the Alps and the Baltic Sea
Making room for the new wine

The grape harvest is just around the corner. But the barrels of winemaker Shanna Reis in Aspisheim (Rheinhessen) are still full of last year's wine. She has four days to bottle it all. After that, she will have room in the cellar for the new wine. And the contract bottler's workers move on to the next winery. The time pressure is great.

Pleasure with a future

Food of the future - grown in the region, healthy, sustainable and produced in-house. They are all the rage, even in the Palatinate. On the eastern edge of the Palatinate Forest, the climate is so mild that the Romans once began cultivating vines and even fig trees thrive here. Yvonne Ortloff makes mustard from figs and Riesling in Bad Dürkheim.

Caucasian wine bliss

Austria in transition - Burgenland

For decades, Burgenland was regarded as an economic problem child: running along the border with Hungary, it was cut off from trade and innovation for many decades by the Iron Curtain. But that was yesterday. Because Burgenland is looking to the future. Here lives a winegrower who stores his wine in Lake Neusiedl rather than in the cellar.

People in the Karst - life between heaven and hell

The Karst has long been the most inhospitable place on earth between Vienna and Trieste. Director Kurt Mayer travelled the Karst landscape intensively for over two years. The karst plateau is perforated like a sponge, soaking up everything that can flow. Its underworld, huge cave domes, rushed through by wild rivers, already characterised Dante's image of hell. Like many farmers in the Karst, Niko Luin and his wife Katarina are keen cave explorers in their spare time. Every Karst inhabitant dreams of having their own cave. Many farmers actually have their own entrance to the underworld. This is where they press wine, store their Karst ham or age cheese. In the cave of Škocjan, one of the largest caves in Europe, a raging river, the Reka, disappears to flow into the sea as the Timavo just 50 kilometres further south near Duino. More than 9,000 caves have now been surveyed in the Karst, but there are still areas that have not yet been documented.

At the table... in Provence

This time, "Zu Tisch in..." takes us to Rose-Marie in Provence, who invites all the residents of her former vineyard to a pre-Christmas party and classic lasagne soup. For 25 years, Rose-Marie Bernard rented out rooms to holiday guests on her old Provençal vineyard. Then she got tired of it, but didn't want to be alone either. So she divided the farm into five flats and sold four of them to young people from the area. She now celebrates Christmas twice, once with her family and once with her new household. Manuel Bernard, Rose-Marie's son, brings his three children and his own wine. Manuel is a winemaker at the "La Martine" winery. Christmas time is anything but tranquil for him. Around Christmas, he prunes the vines and prepares the young wine in the fermentation tanks for the cuvée. Only this combination of different varieties produces a good Côtes du Rhône in the end.

Islands of Italy - Monte Isola

There are around 17,000 olive trees on the island of Isola, the most northerly in Italy. This is due to the mild microclimate of the lake at the foothills of the Alps. It also favours viticulture on the southern shore. Franciacorta sparkling wine was created here in the 1960s. Lake Iseo is the least known of the northern Italian lakes. In it lies Monte Isola, surrounded by a mountain panorama up to 2,000 metres high. The island is only around five square kilometres in size and has been named one of the most beautiful places in Italy ("Borghi più Belli d'Italia"). The car-free island has a timeless atmosphere. Hustle and bustle is a foreign word here. Four picturesque villages lie on the shores of the lake, which were originally fishing villages.

The history of the drink is inextricably linked to that of the country: a slow but irreversible democratisation - from the high aristocracy of the past to the young trendsetters of the present. The programme is also available online from 24.11.2023 to 29.2.2024.
