Germany is a country of Wines!
The remnants of a Roman estate and wine press house from the third century are witness to the long history of viticulture in Germany.
The character of a wine is very closely linked to soil, climate, site and grape variety. In most cases, the vines are planted on gypsum keuper or shell limestone or volcanic rocks.
The vineyards spread out across the slopes und terraced hill sides, many of them steep. The plots are nearly always well exposed to sunshine, producing grapes which are fruity and spicy, full of flavours and aromas.
