German white wine in today’s market is primarily Riesling. Riesling is held by many to be the most noble of white wine grapes, and because of Germany’s cooler climate and soil composition, the grape thrives there to make wines of high quality.
German white wine of fine quality is also produced from Müller-Thurgau, Sylvaner and Gewürtztraminer grapes just to name a few. Red varietals are not completely abandoned as Germany produces a small quantity of Pinot Noir, which are labeled Spätburgunder.
Where are the best German wines produced? Outstanding German Riesling and the majority of German wines are produced in the Mosel, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Nahe and Pfalz regions. These regions are located in west and southwestern corner of Germany, along the valleys of the Rhine River and its tributaries.
