Shame, I love Cochem.
We once enjoyed a superb ad hoc winefest in a cafe lower down, just outsideCoblenz.
A reverse experience. Bored stiff in Lagos, Nigeria, I went into a grotty cafe (and grotty in Nigeria means GROTTY), ordered a meal I knew from past experience I'd like and - what the hell - a bottle of vino which I fully expected to be vinegar. Despite all the transport and storage in impossible heat, it turned out to be one of the best bottles of Beaune I think I've everhad!
