Grape Vine
All famous winegrowing regions of the world derive their identity from one or only a few very specific grape varieties. For example, Pinot noir in Burgundy, Nebbiolo in Barolo, Riesling in the Rheingau or Silvaner in Franconia.  At the northern limits of production areas, wine is often restricted to favourable microclimates on sunny slopes along rivers. However, the range of varieties available enables cultivation in a wide range of climates and soils. Permeable soils are important, and the soil’s mineral content and composition influences the taste of the wine.
Key facts
