    Focus 2 : Wine regions

    Moselle:

    This region is considered as the oldest wine-growing area in the country.
    It is divided into 5 sub-regions: the lower Moselle, the middle Moselle, the Ruwer, the Saarland and the upper Moselle.
    It's here that the reputation of the German Riesling was created, we count 5000 ha planted in Riesling on 9000 ha of vineyard. However, from one sector to another, the differences will be striking, especially due to different soils and climates.
    This vast terroir will allow you to taste many other grape varieties (Müller-Thurgau, Elbling, Kerner, Weißer Burgunder, Spätburgunder, Dornfelder).

    Bade:

    On the other side of the Rhine, in front of Alsace, the Riesling of Baden has nothing to envy to that of the Moselle. These dry and powerful wines, are found on all the good tables of German restaurants. But it is also one of the few regions where red wines have an important place, here the Spätburgunder represents a third of encépagement.

    Rheingau:

    Sheltered in the north by the Taunus hills and warmed up by the Rhine, the heart of the Rheingau is an ideal place for vines. The most famous wines in this region are late harvests (sweet wines made when the grapes are very mature), including Beerenausle and Trockenbeerenausle (mainly from Riesling and Chardonnay). In some places, the river is very wide that enable the creation of mist, and allows the development of noble rot.

    Nahe:

    Situated between the Moselle, the Rhine Hesse and the Rheingau, the Nahe has distinguished itself by taking the best of each region. From the Hunsruck Hills, upstream from the town of Bad Kreuznach, the Nahe vineyards are scattered, they will appear in front of you when the banks turn south. On soils difficult to cultivate talented winemakers work very beautifully in Müller-Thurgau, Riesling and Dornfelder (red grape variety)…
