There are 13 wine-growing regions in Germany.
The second largest, with 23,400 hectares of vineyards, is the Palatinate. It stretches along the German Wine Route for 80 km in length and 6-10 km in width.
Since 2008, the Palatinate has been the largest Riesling area in the world with 5455 hectares. In the past, top Rieslings from the Mittelhaardt, the northern wine-growing region of the Palatinate, were among the most expensive and sought-after wines in the world.
The Palatinate also stands for top-quality red wines, which account for nearly 40 percent of the area under cultivation. The region is Germany's largest red wine region. Dornfelder plays the main role, but Pinot Noir and Portugieser are also of particular importance.
Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris are among the showpieces of many wineries; like the wines of the Palatinate as a whole, they are - like the Palantinate wines as a whole- mostly dry. Their quality and typicity are strictly tested in neutral tastings.
The Palatinate is the market leader in white herbs, which are mostly made from the Portugieser grape. A speciality of the Palatinate is the St. Laurent grape variety, which has been saved from extinction by winemakers in the region. The wineries set special accents with modern, international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon or Sauvignon blanc. They thrive magnificently on the edge of the Palatinate Forest.
We cultivate 11 hectares in many top vineyards.
