Pfalz (Palatinate)

Pfalz (Palatinate) is a key wine region in western Germany, located between the river Rhine and the low-lying Haardt mountain range (a natural continuation of the Alsatian Vosges).

In terms of both quality and quantity, Pfalz is one of Germany’s most important regions, and one which shows great promise for the future. The region produces 60% white wines and 40% reds. An increasing proportion of Germany’s finest Riesling and Pinot Noir come from Pfalz vineyards.

Because of the mild climate, Rieslings from Pfalz are noticeably richer and riper than those found in the other top Riesling regions, Mosel, Rheingau and Nahe. The next popular grape after Riesling is Dornfelder, a red wine variety crossed in 1956 which has become popular all over Germany.
