Germany’s largest wine region Rheinhessen with about one forth of the whole German vineyard surface, lies in a valley of gentle rolling hills. Steep vineyard sites are confined to small areas near Bingen and south of Mainz along the Rhein Terrasse. Varied soils and the favourable climate make it possible to grow many grape varieties, old and new. The region boasts the world’s largest acreage planted with the ancient variety Silvaner. In recent years Rheinhessen has developed very dynamically due to many young winemakers coming into the industry. Rheinhessen offers a wide range of wines – pleasant, easy-to-drink wines as well as wines of great class and elegance, with a depth and complexity second to none.
