Our grape varieties
The grape variety Riesling is known as the Queen of all white wine grapes due to its attractive balance of fruit character, fresh acidity, minerality and resulting elegance as well as variety. The Riesling grape needs special climatic conditions and terroir which are perfectly found in selected parts across Germany combining good day-temperatures with cool nights leading to very long ripening periods of the grapes. Today, German Fine Rieslings are widely recognised as the best Riesling wines in the world winning many medals and awards across the globe. Germany and in particular the Rhine valley, Rheingau, as well as the Mosel valley are known as the »Hometown of Riesling« in the world.
