Germany is one of the northernmost wine producing countries.
To overcome the climate challenge they have developed an impressive wine culture - focused first on the steep slopes by the major rivers, and on varieties that can grow well in that climate - Riesling, Pinot, Sylvaner, and some new gems like Dornfelder.
Riesling and Pinot are the uncontested giants here - and world class.
