German Wine

Unexpected delights....

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.
