A specialty here is Uhudler wine, made from hybrids with North American species such as Isabella, Concord, Delaware, Noah, Elvira and Ripadella, which was banned for a while after the 1985 scandal. The classic red wines of the Südburgenland are vinified from the Blaufränkisch variety. And beginning with the 2009 vintage, they can be marketed under the designation Eisenberg DAC (the 2008 vintage for Eisenberg DAC Reserve). In addition to the classic fruity varietal wines are the intense, minerally Reserve wines – which are amongst Austria´s great region-typical red wines.

This means that botrytised dessert wines can be made more easily, and hence sold more cheaply, than in other areas famous for this style of wine. Increasingly, red wine is also being made in this region.

Neusiedlersee-Hügelland    Neusiedlersee-Hügelland is a wine region in Austria.

Oberösterreich        Oberösterreich is a wine region in Austria.

Salzburg       Salzburg is a wine region in Austria.

Smaragd       One of the three Wachau Classifications referred to as "Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus" for dry wines. Qualifying wines have a must weight of 18.2º KMW, equivalent to 82.5º Oechsle, minimum 12.5% alcohol, with a maximum 9g/liter residual sugar. These are some of the best dry whites in Austria. Smaragd is an 'emerald' lizard that lives in the vineyards and that is also the classic logo on these bottles.

Staubiger      Cloudy newly-fermented wine offered at a Heurigen.

Steiermark    Steiermark is a wine region in Austria.

Steinfeder     One of the three Wachau Classifications referred to as "Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus" for dry wines. Literally 'Stone feather' - Steinfeder was named after a grass, Stipa pinnata, that grows in the vineyards. Wines can have a maximum 11.5% alcohol.

SturmStill-fermenting must offered at a Heurigen.

StyriaStyria is a major wine region in Austria. Within Styria are the regions Süd-Oststeiermark, Südsteiermark and Weststeiermark.

Südburgenland        Südburgenland is a wine region in Austria. Südburgenland is the most rustic wine landscape of the Burgenland, and extends from Rechnitz,in the north, to Güssing, in the south. The northern area is dominated by primary rock soils, and to the south, moderately heavy loam soils – some of which have a high iron content - prevail. The entire vineyard area totals approximately 500 hectares.

Süd-Oststeiermark   "Süd-Oststeiermark is a wine region in Austria. The many extinct volcanoes east of Graz give a rich soil which imparts a spiciness to the variety of grapes grown in Southeast Styria. The climate is a little cooler here, especially at night, giving a long growing season resulting in wines that are crisp, aromatic and full bodied.

 

1,300 hectares of vineyards are cultivated - all located around Klöch, Sankt Anna am Aigen and Straden and situated primarily on the slopes of the extinct volcanoes which characterie the landscape. Some vineyards are up to 650m above sea level. The main grape varieties grown in this region are Welschriesling, Chardonnay (called Morillon), Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) and Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), Gelber Muskateller, the Traminer family, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling; red wines feature Zweigelt as well as other grapes, including St. Laurent or Blauburgunder (Pinot Noir)."

Südsteiermark         Südsteiermark is a wine region in Austria. Südsteiermark (South Styria), near the Slovenian border, is mainly Sauvignon Blanc country – however, the 1,950 hectares of vineyards also include Welschriesling, Morillon, Muskateller and Traminer. Soil types include sandstone, shale, clay and shelly limestone. The combination of warm days and cool nights gives a long growing season, resulting in crisp, aromatic and full-bodied wines. The region also produces “Junker” – fruity, young wines.

Thermenregion       Thermenregion is a wine region in Austria. The spa region south of Vienna saw two wine regions, Gumpoldskirchen and Bad Vöslau, merged in 1985. Climatically similar to Burgundy, with a wide variation in soils, all kinds of grape varieties are made here, many being made into heurigen wines. Perhaps the most interesting wines are the Spätrot-Rotgipflers, made from a blend of the local varieties Zierfandler (Spätrot) and Rotgipfler, both of which are white grapes despite their names.

Tirol   Tirol is a wine region in Austria.

Traisental DAC        Traisental DAC is a wine region in Austria. To the south of Krems lies Herzogenburg, at the centre of Traisental, which was only designated as a wine district in 1995. Mostly Grüner Veltliner is grown here, which is made into a fresh style for drinking young.

Vienna          Vienna is the capitol of Austria and a major wine region containing the region of Wein.

Vorarlberg    Vorarlberg is a wine region in Austria that is relatively insignificant.

Wachau        Wachau is a wine region in Austria. Wachau, one of the best-known wine regions of Austria, is a narrow Danube valley between Melk and Krems. Here, the 1,400 hectares of vineyards - some of which are on steep terraces - feature mainly Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus still clings to its own classification of Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd, reserved for wines that are made 100% from Wachau grapes.

Wagram        "Wagram is a wine region in Austria formerly called Donauland. Between Krems and Vienna lies the Donauland, which covers two very different areas. North of the Danube is the plateau of Wagram, where the Grüner Veltliner is a bit more full-bodied and aromatic, and Roter Veltliner is something of a local specialty. Blauer Zweigelt and Pinot Noir wines are also made here, as well as a little Eiswein.

Further downstream, just outside Vienna lies Klosterneuburg. As the biggest private wine estate in the country, the abbey has played a formative role in Austrian wine for the last 900 years. The Federal Institute for Viticulture and Pomology was the world's first college of viticulture and continues to play an important part in the development of wine in Austria."

Weinviertel DAC      Weinviertel DAC is a wine region in Austria. The Weinviertel lies in the northeast corner of Austria, between the Danube and the Czech & Slovak borders. The biggest single wine region in Austria is home to half the Grüner Veltliner in the country (subject of the first DAC), and considerable amounts of Welschrielsing, but most of Austria's varieties can be found here. Even sparkling wine is made from Riesling and Grüner Veltliner in the far northeast around Poysdorf, a particularly picturesque town in a country with more than her fair share of pretty wine country.

Weststeiermark       Weststeiermark is a wine region in Austria. Southwest of Graz lie ancient vineyards which mainly produce a cult rosé called Schilcher. Made from the indigenous Blauer Wildbacher grape, genuine Schilcher carries a mark with a white horse, after the Lipizzaners bred in Piber for the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.

Wien   Wien is a wine region in Austria. Even the French and Italians don't have 621ha of vineyards within the city limits of their capital. But vines were grown within the city walls of Vienna in the Middle Ages, although they have now been pushed into the outskirts. Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc are grown on the limestone soils towards Klosterneuburg, whereas red grapes do better on the rich soil to the south of the city. Field blends known as Gemischter Satz are common here, and most wine is drunk young in the city's heurigen.

Lake Erie North Shore VQA          "Lake Erie North Shore VQA is a sub-region within the region of Ontario in Canada. The vineyards of Southwestern Ontario cover over 500 acres situated in a favored mesoclimate along the north shore of Lake Erie in Essex, Kent and Elgin counties, except that part of Kent county lying to the north of the Thames River. The grape growing area stretches along the bow-shaped shoreline of Lake Erie from Amherstburg to Leamington, with a further concentration of vineyards around the town of Blenheim to the east. Soil structures vary from gravely loam to clay and sandy loam. With southern exposure complemented by the moderating effect of the lake, this Viticultural Area produces some of Canada’s finest wines.

 

Lake Erie is the shallowest of the Great Lakes affording it the warmest surface temperature of the five lakes. This also benefits from an abundance of sunshine, and as a result its fruit often goes to market weeks before that from other parts of Ontario."

Niagara Peninsula VQA      "Niagara Peninsula VQA is a sub-region within the region of Ontario in Canada. It is the largest VA in Canada, accounting for 80 percent of Canada’s grape-growing volume. The climate during the growing season is comparable to that of Burgundy, France. As if to compensate, wines grown in such temperate climates can produce superior fruit, with better aromas and more intense flavours than in warmer climates.

 

It is bordered by Lake Ontario on the north and the Niagara River on the east. Where the Niagara River flows over the Niagara Escarpment, the most predominant topographical feature of the peninsula, the river is transformed into one of the seven great wonders of the world, Niagara Falls. (Highways 20 and 56 form the western boundary and the Welland River the southern.)

 

The Niagara Escarpment is a 335 metre (575 ft.) high ridge that winds for 725 km (550 miles) from Queenston, Ontario (near Niagara Falls) to Tobermory in northern Ontario, where it continues underwater to Manitoulin Island and then into the state of Michigan in the US. In its journey through Niagara, the Niagara Escarpment forms an east-west spine, the essence of this appellation. A ledge or tier called the Bench runs parallel to the base of the Escarpment where vineyards benefit from the lake’s offshore breezes, which are buffeted back to the lake when they reach the escarpment, maintaining a constant active flow of air. This circulating activity prevents cold air from settling in lower-lying areas during threatening periods of frost.

 

The region’s temperatures are influenced by Lake Ontario, which acts as a hot water bottle in winter — raising winter temperatures on land from its summer-warmed waters. In spring, breezes from its winter-cooled waters help to hold back the development of fruit buds until the danger of late spring frosts have passed. Lake Ontario also cools the summer air so that grapes do not ripen too quickly, and then keeps the fall air comparatively warm so that the first frost is delayed, thus extending the growing season. Most of Ontario’s wineries are located in the Niagara Peninsula."

Nova Scotia  Nova Scotia is a major region in Canada.

Okanagan Valley VQA        "Okanagan Valley VQA is a sub-region within the region of British Columbia in Canada. It is the largest and oldest grape growing region in BC dating back to the mid 1800s. Today the 180 km (100 mile) - long valley is planted with over 4000 acres (1500 hectares) of premium grape varieties. The 40 wineries located in the valley produce 95 percent of the province’s wine.

 

The south end of the valley, which receives fewer than six inches of rainfall a year, is the only classified desert area in Canada. Summer days are hot and nights are chilly providing a diurnal cooling that enables grapes to ripen sufficiently yet maintains balanced levels of acidity. The north end of the valley, also arid, receives fewer than sixteen inches of rainfall per year.

 

Because of the wide variation in climate in the Okanagan Valley many different kinds of grapes are grown here. In the southern Osoyoos growing region near the USA Border, red Bordeaux varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot do exceedingly well. The further north in the valley, the cooler the temperatures become, providing beneficial growing conditions for German grape varieties such as Siegerrebe, Sylvaner, Optima and Ortega, while in the central areas, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay do well.

 

The Okanagan Valley, ideal for fine wine growing, is also one of the most important tourist destinations in British Columbia."

Ontario         Ontario is a major region in Canada.

Pelee Island VQA     Pelee Island VQA is a sub-region within the region of Ontario in Canada. Pelee Island is Canada’s most southerly point, and accordingly, it enjoys a longer growing season than any other wine region in Canada, often thirty days more than on the mainland. Situated in Lake Erie, 25 kilometres (15 miles) off the mainland, Pelee Island has 500 acres under vine. Picking usually begins at the end of August and even late-harvest grapes are in by mid October. Canada’s first commercial wine growing operation began here in 1866 when a winery called VinVilla opened its doors. The vineyards were replanted with many Vitis Vinifera vines in 1980.

The wine-growing tradition in this area, one of the oldest traditions on the island, has grown up around carefully maintained estates and plots of land planted with Sciaccarello vines. Often seen as the jewel in the crown of Corsican grape varieties, Sciaccarellu grapes tend to give both red and rosé wines a distinctive flavor and elegance.

Aligoté         Grape: Aligoté is a white grape used to make dry white wines in Burgundy, but also has significant plantings in much of Eastern Europe including Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova and Bulgaria. With 45,000 hectares (110,000 acres), it was the 22nd most planted vine variety in the world in 2004. The wine was first recorded in Burgundy in the 18th century. Traditionally, the cocktail kir (also known as vin blanc cassis in French) is made by adding cassis to an Aligoté white wine. The village of Bouzeron is considered to produce the finest examples of the variety.

Alsace AOC   Alsace AOC is located on the German border in the north-east of France. The wines are mostly white and usually dry and full-bodied. Unlike most other French wine regions, there is only one AOC appellation for most wines made in the whole of Alsace. In 2006, 78 per cent of the Alsatian vineyards were producing wine under the Alsace AOC appellation. Other French wine regions have numerous appellations within them, often designating wine from a particular town or, even, an area within a certain town. Alsace AOC wines are often sold with one of the varietal labels or similar designations that are allowed under the AOC rules. In some cases, a lieu-dit, the name of a vineyard, is also displayed on the bottle. Neither the varietal labels or the lieux-dits are separate appellations; all carry "Appellation Alsace Contrôlée" on the label.

Alsace Bas     As it is commonly referred to in books as opposed to how it is referred to in Alsace: Northern Alsace. The people of Alsace refer to it as Bas Rhine. A very common mistake when considering “upper” and “lower” is to assume that these concepts are based in directions of north and south or east and west. In Alsace the upper (Haut) and lower (Bas) are determined by the flow of the river, just as right and left banks are determined in Bordeaux and Rhone. The Rhine flows from south to north.

Alsace Grand Cru AOC       Alsace Grand Cru AOC, which is a separate appellation, was not created until 1975. As of 2009, there are currently 51 lieux-dits listed as Grand Cru. All wines labeled with the Alsace Grand Cru designation must be produced from the noble Alsace varieties: Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer grapes. The one exception is that Sylvaner can be grown in one grand cru plot, the 14ha Zotzenberg vineyard, and labeled as Grand cru. These wines can be produced as late harvest wines and labeled either Sélection de Grains Nobles (SGN) or Vendange Tardive (VT).

Alsace Haut   As it is commonly referred to in books as opposed to how it is referred to in Alsace: Southern Alsace.  The people of Alsace refer to it as Haut Rhine. A very common mistake when considering “upper” and “lower” is to assume that these concepts are based in directions of north and south or east and west. In Alsace the upper (Haut) and lower (Bas) are determined by the flow of the river, just as right and left banks are determined in Bordeaux and Rhone. The Rhine flows from south to north.

The boundaries of the Anjou AOC extend into nearby Saumur, allowing some of the wine produced in that region to be sold under the Anjou AOC label. The basic Anjou Rouge can be produced from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pineau d'Aunis and tend to be medium to full bodied. Basic Anjou Blanc can range in style from dry to sweet and light bodied to full. They must be composed of a minimum 80% Chenin blanc with Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc permitted to fill out the remaining 20% of the blend.

Anjou Villages AOC  Anjou-Villages AOC produces red wine only and was first delimited in 1986 (but did not go into effect until the 1991 harvest.) Made entirely from Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon, these wines have an aging potential of 2-6 years after harvest. There are 46 communes in the appellation allowed to produce grapes for this AOC.

Anjou Villages Brissac AOCAnjou-Villages Brissac AOC is a sub appellation of the Anjou-Villages AOC, encompassing the vineyards around Brissac-Quincé and nine surrounding villages. Officially recognized in 1998, producers in the region were given an allowance to back date their labels with the new appellation for the previous 1997 & 1996 vintage.

Anjou-Coteaux de la Loire AOC    Anjou Coteaux de la Loire AOC is located southwest of the city of Angers. This appellation was designated in 1946 to produce sweet wines from Chenin blanc. The grapes in this AOC are harvested at same sugar levels as in Sauternes (221 grams per liter) with the finished wines having residual sugar levels of 17 grams per liter. In the early 21st century, as the market for dessert wines dwindle, vineyards in this area are rapidly being converted to Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for production of red wines under the Anjou AOC appellation.

Anjou-Gamay AOC   Anjou Gamay AOC maintains nearly the same boundary as the Anjou AOC but is dedicated to wines produced 100% from Gamay. Similar to Beaujolais nouveau, these wines can be produced as Vins de primeur and released as early as the third Thursday of November following harvest.

Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée    Often abbreviated to AC or AOC, this is the highest legal classification for French wine, above Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure, Vin de Pays and Vin de Table. In order to qualify for the AC, wines must be produced from grapes grown within a geographically defined area, and conform to regulations concerning grape varieties, yields, alcohol content and so on. Although AC means these features are guaranteed, it is not unfortunately a guarantee of quality.

Appellation d'Origine Protégée     Appellation d'Origine Protégée or AOP (protected Label of origin) is a European identification mark for French, Belgian and Luxembourg products. Created in 1992, it protects “the denomination from a product whose production, transformation and development must take place in a given geographical surface with a recognized and noted know-how." Ultimately, it is will replace the AOC system.

Appellation d'Origine Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure        Appellation d'Origine Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure (Label of Origin Delimited Wine of Higher Quality) or AOVDQS is usually abbreviated as VDQS. This is the second highest category of French wine, below Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) in rank, but above Vin de pays (country wine). Created in 1949, it represents 1% of French wine production. The VDQS category is scheduled to be eliminated in 2011.

Arbanne       "Grape: Arbane or Arbanne is a white grape used in wine. It is historically a variety of the Aube region, and is one of the 7 legal grapes allowed in Champagne. There is a mere single hectare (2.5 acres) left in France in 1998. It is still allowed in the Champagne blend.

 

Recent years have seen a resurged interest in the “ancient varieties” that are almost extinct, including Arbanne. The Champagne house Moutard-Diligent in Buxeuil produces a ""Vieilles Vignes"" Champagne made only from Arbanne, while a few others, including Aubry and Drappier, produce blends which include both Arbanne and other now rare Champagne varieties such as Fromenteau, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc."

ArboisGrape: Arbois or Arbois Blanc is a white French grape planted primarily in the Loire regions. Despite being a minor grape, in the late 20th century it was the third most widely planted grape variety in the Loir-et-Cher département which includes the winemaking areas of Cheverny, Cour-Cheverny, Montrichard, Oisly, Saint-Romain-sur-Cher, Valençay as well as vineyards that make wines under the Touraine AOC, Crémant de Loire AOC and Vin de Pays du Loir et Cher. Arbois tends to produce softer wines with less noticeable acidity. For this reason, Arbois has mostly been valued as a "softening" agent to the higher acid varieties of Chenin blanc, Savagnin and Romorantin.

Syrah and Carignan are restricted in Bandol to composing no more than 15% of the blend or 10% individually. Nearly 70% of the region's production is red wine with rosé wine filling out the rest of Bandol's production accompanied by a small amount of white production.

There are seven white varieties: Raffiat de Moncade, Petit Manseng, Gros Manseng, Pinenc, Sauvignon, Camaralet de Lasseube and Lauzet. Some vineyards in the area of the Jurançon AOC can also produce red Béarn wine, and some in the area of the Madiran AOC may produce a rosé Béarn. Wines made in the village of Bellocq also carry the appellation Béarn-Bellocq.

Beaujolais AOC        "Beaujolais AOC is generally made of the Gamay grape which has a thin skin and is low in tannins. Whites from the region, which make up only 1% of its production, are made mostly with Chardonnay grapes though Aligoté is also permitted. Beaujolais tends to be a very light-bodied red wine, with relatively high amounts of acidity. Beaujolais sometimes produces more wine than the Burgundy wine regions of Chablis, Côte d'Or, Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais put together; neither Beaujolais nor Burgundy considers Beaujolais to be part of Burgundy.

 

The best wines as Cru Beaujolais, or single-vineyard wines. From north to south the Beaujolais crus are- Saint-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Régnié, Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly. An all-to-common mistake is to call these wines “Grand Cru.” They are not. The most popular form of wine here seems to be Beaujolais Nouveau. Today, about a third of the region's production is sold as Beaujolais Nouveau, a marketing name created by George Duboeuf for the local vin de l'année. The lightest, fruitiest style of Beaujolais, it is the first French wine to be released for each vintage year. The grapes are harvested between late August and early September, fermented for just a few days and released to the public for parties on the third Thursday of November - ""Beaujolais Nouveau Day.""

."

Beaujolais-Villages AOC     Beaujolais-Villages AOC, the intermediate category in terms of classification, covers 39 communes/villages in the Haut Beaujolais, the northern part of the region accounting for a quarter of production. Some is sold as Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau, but it is not common. Most of the wines are released in the following March after the harvest. The terrain of this region is hillier with more schist and granite soil composition than what is found in the regions of the Beaujolais AOC and the wine has the potential to be of higher quality. If the grapes come from the area of a single vineyard or commune, producers can affix the name of their particular village to the Beaujolais-Villages designation. Since most of the villages of Beaujolais, outside of those classified as Cru Beaujolais, villages have little international name recognitions most producers choose to maintain the Beaujolais-Villages designation. Several of the communes in the Beaujolais-Villages AOC also qualify to produce their wines under the Mâconnais and Saint-Véran AOCs. The Beaujolais producers that produce a red wine under the Beaujolais-Villages appellation will often produce their white wine under the more internationally recognized names of Mâcon-Villages or Saint-Véran.

The change to the mandatory minimum of 90% Mauzac in the AOC regulations of Blanquette de Limoux was seen as a safeguard in maintaining the traditional style of Blanquette de Limoux and preserving the use of the local Mauzac grape which is declining in worldwide plantings.

Blanquette méthode ancestrale AOC       The wine that the monks of St-Hilaire invented in 1531 was known as Vin de Blanquette and the Méthode Rurale wine became a separate AOC known as Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale. Today this AOC is used for a demi-sec sparkling wine made in a more old-fashioned way, without disgorgement. It is produced in the same area as Blanquette de Limoux, and may only contain Mauzac. Due to the absence of disgorgement, these wines are generally very cloudy with the lees still present. The winemaking method used to make Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale is also known as the Méthode Gaillacoise and is used to make the sparkling mousseux wine of the Gaillac AOC. This method involves traditional hand crafted winemaking, with minimum use of modern technology such as stainless steel fermentation tanks. The resulting wines are typically low in alcohol (often less than 7% by volume), with sweet apple-like flavors and a slight sparkling fizz.

As with the reds, white Bordeaux wines are usually blends, most commonly of Sémillon and a smaller proportion of Sauvignon Blanc. Other permitted grape varieties are Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Merlot Blanc, Ondenc and Mauzac.

Most Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains (or Bourgogne Passetoutgrains) is red although rosé is also be produced. Unlike other Burgundy wines, which are primarily produced from a single grape variety, Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains is a blend. It must contain at least one third Pinot varieties, with the rest Gamay. Pinot primarily means Pinot Noir, but Pinot Liébault is also allowed. Furthermore, it is allowed to blend in up to 15% of the white varieties Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.

 

The Pinot and Gamay are fermented together. This process starts with a carbonic maceration and continues with a traditional fermentation. The wine is usually released young, and shows little aging potential. Since Passe-Tout-Grains is generally a simple, rather unrefined wine, consider it to be similar to Beaujolais Villages in regards to serving or long-term storage.

 

Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains is allowed to be produced throughout the basic Bourgogne appellation, but most Passe-Tout-Grains are produced from grapes grown in the Côte Chalonnaise, where Gamay makes up almost half of the red grapes."

Champagne   "Champagne wine only comes from the Champagne region of France and, generally speaking, a sparkling wine. Sadly, there are leaches in the wine world who continue to dilute the name and confuse the consumer. There are 5 départements : la Marne (67% du vignoble total), l’Aube (23%), l’Aisne, la Haute-Marne et la Seine-et-Marne. There are 4 major regions: Montagne de Reims, Valée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs and Côte des Bar. 17 villages have historically been the name ""Grand Cru"" and 44 villages of the name ""Premier Cru.""

As a general rule, grapes used are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier. Most Champagnes are made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Based in these three grapes, Blanc de Blancs (""white from whites"") are made from 100% Chardonnay. Blanc de Noirs (""white from blacks"") is made from Pinot Noir and/or Pinot Meunier. The bypassing of maceration maintains the “blanc” final product. Beyond the conventional wisdom that “only” three grapes are used for making Champagne, several other grape varieties are permitted for historical reasons. The complete list of the nine actual and theoretical varieties reads Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Arbanne, Petit Meslier, Fromenteau (Pinot gris), Pinot de Juillet and Pinot Rosé. Gamay was scheduled to be uprooted by 1942, but was postponed until 1962."

Also in the previous version of the appellation rules, Grenache and Picpoul were associated with different pruning regulations in their noir and blanc versions, bringing the number of varieties previously mentioned from thirteen to fifteen. Red varieties allowed are Cinsault, Counoise, Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre, Muscardin, Piquepoul Noir, Syrah, Terret Noir, and Vaccarèse (Brun Argenté). White and pink varieties are Bourboulenc, Clairette Blanche, Clairette Rose, Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris, Picardan, Piquepoul Blanc, Piquepoul Gris, and Roussanne.

Chaume        Chaume AOC is situated in the western part of the Coteaux du Layon area in the commune of Rochefort-sur-Loire. In 2003, INAO elevated Chaume to its own AOC under the name Chaume Premier Cru des Coteaux du Layon. This choice of name was somewhat unusual for the region, since no other Loire appellation the designation Premier Cru or Grand Cru as part of their AOC name. Therefore, the decision was protested by some other Loire producers, and in 2005 the Conseil d'État annulled INAO's rules for the new appellation, temporarily returning Chaume to its pre-2003 status. In 2007, the AOC was created anew, now under the shorter and less-controversial name of Chaume. The vintages 2005 and 2006 were allowed to carry the new name. Interestingly enough, the must weight and residual sugar requirements for the new Chaume appellation were set higher than for Quarts de Chaume. However, Quarts de Chaume AOC producers still felt that the close association between their AOC's name and Chaume was causing damage to the value of their wines and continued to object to the AOC naming, and brought the new AOC to court as well, where it was annulled in May 2009, which would mean that the wine would be back to Coteaux du Layon status. In December 2009 it looked like the controversy would be resolved by the regional committe of INAO by Chaume being allowed to call itself Premier Cru, while Quarts de Chaume would be called Grand Cru.

Clairette Blanche was often used to make vermouth, to which it is suited as it produces wine high in alcohol and low in acidity, and therefore yields wines that are sometimes described as "flabby" and which tend to oxidize easily. These problems have sometimes been partially overcome by blending it with high-acid varieties such as Piquepoul Blanc. The white wines Clairette de Bellegarde and Clairette du Languedoc are made entirely from Clairette Blanche, while the sparkling wine Clairette de Die can also contain Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains. Clairette Blanche is frequently used in the blended white Vin de Pays from Languedoc.

Not to be confused with Cramant. When the term Crémant was introduced for non-Champagne sparkling wines in France, an AOC for more "modern" or internationally-styled sparkling wines, was created in 1990. The origin of that decision occurred a year earlier, in 1989, when the producers of Limoux had to decided on whether or not they wanted to maintain the traditional makings of Blanquette de Limoux based on Mauzac or relax the AOC regulations to allow the introduction of more Chenin blanc and Chardonnay to create internationally recognized flavors.

All Bordeaux red grape varieties may be used to produce rosé Crémants de Bordeaux. Delicate pressing (to produce only 100 litres per 150 kg of harvested berries) is used to avoid extracting the red pigments in the grape skins. The resulting color is a light rosé.

Crémant de Limoux AOC    Crémant de Limoux was introduced to allow the producers to make whichever style of sparkling wine that they preferred modern or traditional, and still sell it under an AOC designation. A deadline was set in 1994 for the least used AOC designation to be phased out but the deadline passed without Crémant de Limoux or Blanquette de Limoux making significant progress and both AOC continue to co-exist today. These Crémant de Limoux wines differ primarily from Blanquette de Limoux in their grape composition with Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc as the main varieties. Together they are not to exceed 90% of the wines. For Chenin blanc, a minimum of 20% and a maximum of 40% must be used. Mauzac and Pinot Noir are accessory grape varieties and may not exceed 20% together with Pinot Noir itself not exceeding 10%. Thus, Crémant de Limoux contains 40-70% Chardonnay, 20-40% Chenin Blanc, 10-20% Mauzac and 0-10% Pinot Noir.

Some white wines are also made, based on Marsanne and/or Roussanne. As with the northern Rhône in general, Crozes-Hermitage produces primarily red wines, with Syrah the only red grape permitted under appellation rules. The rules allow the addition of up to 15% white grapes, Marsanne and Roussanne. These two grape varieties are also used to make up the white wines that are made in the appellation. The more notable vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage include Les Chassis, Les Sept Chemins and Les Meysonniers. Many of the red wines are relatively light and intended for early drinking, while others will keep and improve in bottle for several years.

They captivate with their more substantial consistence, different than the majority of Merlot wines from this region. Merlot, which prefers deep soil, ripens better here than Cabernet-Sauvignon.

Fronsac has many different types of soils, but they all share the alluvial characteristics at the bottom of the slopes and clay-limestone hills (and even pure limestone, as in Saint-Emilion). Deeper in the ground, rocks with chalk and clay are found which is excellent for drainage. The steep slopes in Fronsac are another unique feature of this terroir that the Bordeaux grape varieties appreciate, resulting in powerful and complex wines.

Graves is the only area of Bordeaux which is famed for reds, dry whites and sweet wines - although red wines dominate the total production. The major villages include Sauternes, Barsac and Pessac-Léognan. The 50 km strip of land is named after its smooth stones deposited by the Garonne River. The soil is comprised of alluvial deposits carried by the Garonne River from the Pyrenees Mountains. The ground underneath is almost pure sand or hardpan (iron-oxide cemented sand). It is here that the vines' deepest roots find the nutrients necessary to create great wine. With a slight predominance of Merlot (50% of planted surfaces), and a strong minority of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), these wines are a perfect example of the Bordeaux balance between suppleness and firmness, richness and aromatic persistence, with wonderful ageing potential.

The soil of this appellation are primarily gravel, or sand and gravel. This explains the word “Graves” in the name of this AOC.  Thanks to the Dordogne, which is very wide at location, and to the soil, the Graves de Vayres AOC enjoys a temperate effect during the summer. These light and warm soils are perfectly adapted to Merlot (75% of vines planted), with Cabernet Sauvignon (15% of surfaces planted) and Cabernet Franc to make the wines of this appellation.

Syrah is the primary grape of Hermitage, although the appellation rules do allow the addition of up to 15% Marsanne and/or Roussanne. Hermitage reds tend toward being very earthy, with aromas of leather, red berries, earth, and cocoa/coffee. Because of the high levels of tannin they are usually aged and are often cellared up to 40 years. Rich, dry white wines are also produced from a blend of Marsanne and Roussanne.

Klevener de Heiligenstein   "Klevener de Heiligenstein is a designation used on Alsace wines made from pink-skinned Savagnin Rose (Traminer family). Since most Alsace wine is varietally labeled, it is a common misunderstanding to believe ""Klevener de Heiligenstein"" to be made from Klevner. The designation may be allowed for existing vineyards in the villages Bourgheim, Gertwiller, Goxwiller, Heiligenstein and Obernai. However, the wine type and the corresponding variety is planned to be phased out from Alsace. Under current appellation rules, the designation may be used until 2021 for existing vineyards, and no replanting of Savagnin Rose is allowed.

Klevener de Heiligenstein has some similarities to Gewürztraminer. Both can produce dry wines with a slight spicy flavor that has the potential to age well, especially in favorable vintages. It is less aromatic than Gewürztraminer with higher acidity and lower alcohol levels. Klevener de Heiligenstein typically has delicate fruit flavors that start to fade after 2–4 years."

Madiran AOCMadiran wine is produced around the village of Madiran in Gascony under the Madiran AOC (1948) for red wines and Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh AOC and Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh Sec AOC for white wines. The main grape variety in Madiran AOC is Tannat, which must make up 40-60% of the wine, and should be supplemented by Bouchy (Cabernet Franc), Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinenc (Fer). Despite these AOC rules, some of the appellation's top wines are in fact made from 100% Tannat without meeting any complaints from the regulatory bodies. Madiran is typically very concentrated, high in tannin and traditionally requires several years aging to soften. The style of really good Madiran is not unlike that of high-end Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated Bordeaux wines. American winemaker Randall Graham gave this region a marketing boost by producing and bringing to the U.S. an appropriately named wine called "Heart of Darkness" -- a typical Graham name and fitting to the character of Madarin wines.

Marechal Foch wines have strong acidity, aromas of black fruits and, in some cases, toasted wheat, mocha, fresh coffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla bean, and musk.

Melon de Bourgogne         "Grape: Melon de Bourgogne is white grape grown in the Loire Valley and best known through its use in the four Muscadet AOCs. As its name suggests, the grape originated in Burgundy and was grown there until its destruction was ordered in the early 18th century. The vineyards around Nantes were destroyed in the harsh winter of 1709 The Melon grape, with its great resistance to frost, was chosen for replanting. The exclusive use of this grape has led to establishing the word ""Musadet"" as a synonym for melon. In terms of flavor it is an undistinguished grape with few strong features, but aging sur lie tends to give its wines more character.

Melon de Bourgogne was brought to America in 1939 by Georges de Latour. For many years the wines were labeled, incorrectly as Pinot Blanc. A few acres of the grape are also grown in Oregon, where it is known simply as Melon. U.S. law dictates that the word ""Muscadet"" cannot be used on a label, only the full name of the grape, or the shortened ""Melon"" can be used.

In recent years, Melon de Bourgogne has been reintroduced to its original home region of Burgundy, particularly to the minor appellation of Bourgogne de Vēzelay. In the warmer, drier climate of Burgundy, the grape produces a fruitier, less astringent wine than Muscadet."

Named after the numerous windmills ("moulins" in French) scattered throughout the countryside, Moulis has welcomed vines since the 13th Century. This appellation is protected from the prevailing winds by a vast pine forest that grows alongside it and thereby benefits from a microclimate favourable to the proper ripening of the grapes.

In France, it is a minor constituent in the dry and sweet wines of Bordeaux, such as Sauternes. It rarely makes up more than 10% of the blend. Throughout the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century, plantings of the grape were falling. Some sweet wines from Monbazillac, on the other hand, can have a higher proportion of Muscadelle. One of the 8 legal white grapes allowed in Bordeaux.

 

In Australia, where it is known as Tokay, the grape is used to make an increasingly popular fortified wine, sometimes known as Liqueur Tokay. Being called Tokay, some Australian producers were convinced that the grape was Pinot Gris (which used to be called Tokay by producers in Alsace). Others thought the grape might have been Hárslevelű, one of the components of the famous Hungarian sweet wine Tokaji. However, it has been proven that Australian Tokay is Muscadelle.

 

Not to be confused with Muscadet (Melon de Bourgogne)."

Muscadet AOC         There are four main appellations of the western-most Loire Valley's Muscadet region. Muscadet is made entirely from Melon de Bourgogne. At the lowest level is this generic AOC Muscadet which covers the entire 32,000 acres (13,000 hectare) region. This infamy is bestowed because better Muscadets are classified into more select and specific AOCs: Muscadet Côtes de Grand Lieu, Muscadet Coteaux de la Loire and the best, Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine.

Muscadet-Coteaux de la Loire AOC         The vineyards of the Coteaux de la Loire lie along the right bank of the river, as it flows towards Nantes. These are regarded locally as the longest-established vineyards, yet are considered to be the leanest of the 3 more-defined Muscadets. This can be attributed to this AOC's northern location.

Muscadet-Côtes de Grandlieu AOC         The vineyards of the Côtes de Grand Lieu (the most recent AOC promotion, gaining its status in 1996), lie to the west of Sèvre-et-Maine, and many local growers claim a stylistic resemblance between the two, distinct from those of the Coteaux de la Loire which are said to be leaner. Well made examples from Muscadet-Côtes de Grandlieu are characterized by floral bouquet and minerality.

Muscadet-Sevre et Maine AOC      Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine was granted AOC status in 1936 and is in the South-east of Nantes and takes the name of the two rivers which cross it: The ‘petite Maine’ and the ‘Sèvre Nantaise’. Among the four Muscadets (with Muscadet, Muscadet Côtes de Grand Lieu and Muscadet Coteaux de la Loire), Sèvre-et-Maine provides the over 80% of production and is considered by most to be the best. In fact, more AOC Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine is produced on a yearly basis than in any other single AOC in the entire Loire Valley. The label is often qualified with Sur Lie, denoting that the wine has been aged on its lees prior to bottling, with the aim of engendering a little more flesh to the wine than it would otherwise possess. Muscadet is made entirely from Melon de Bourgogne.

Muscat de Beaumes de Venise AOC         Muscat de Beaumes de Venise AOC is located in the southern Rhône Valley. Nearly two thousand years ago, Pliny the Elder wrote in his Natural History: "The Muscat grape has been grown for a long time in Beaumes and its wine is remarkable." The wine is produced from a single variety, the small berried Muscat which is also known as the Muscat de Frontignan, and must contain a minimum alcohol level of 15%. Mutage is carried out during the fermentation by the addition of 95° (minimum) proof spirit. A unique feature of the way the grapes ripen is the way in which the warmth of the sun reflects and radiates down over the vines from the huge vertical granite slabs of the Dentelles de Montmirail - the 'teeth of Montmirail'.

It produces a well-known vin doux naturel (sweet fortified wine) made from the Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains variety (see muscat). The wines from Mireval are similar to those from the neighboring Frontignan, although they are slightly bigger and richer.

Muscat de Rivesaltes AOC  Muscat de Rivesaltes is an AOC (1956) for vin doux naturel made in the Roussillon. They are similar to Rivesaltes AOC wines, except for the grape varieties used. The wines are white, and made from Muscat d'Alexandrie and Muscat à Petits Grains grapes, usually in equal quantities, although the appellation rules allow these varieties to be used in any proportion. The alcohol content must be at least 15 per cent by volume, the potential alcohol content at least 21.5 per cent, and the sugar content (fermentable sugars, glucose and fructose) of the finished wine at least 100 grams per liter.

The term musqué is usually suffixed to the name of certain grape varieties to indicate a clone with musqué properties, e.g. "Chardonnay musqué" or "Sauvignon blanc musqué." Such clones have arisen through mutation of a regular ("non-musqué") clone of the variety, and such mutations have been recorded for several different grape varieties.

The most widely exported wine of this type is Beaujolais nouveau which is released on the third Thursday of November, often only a few weeks after the grapes were harvested. Nouveau wines are often light bodied and paler in color due to the very short (or nonexistent) maceration period followed by a similarly short fermentation. The wines will most likely be simple, fruity and may have some residual sugar. As of 2005, there were 55 AOCs in France permitted to make nouveau wines.

 

Vins de primeur should not be confused with the practice of buying and selling wines en primeur.

Most Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains (or Bourgogne Passetoutgrains) is red although rosé is also be produced. Unlike other Burgundy wines, which are primarily produced from a single grape variety, Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains is a blend. It must contain at least one third Pinot varieties, with the rest Gamay. Pinot primarily means Pinot Noir, but Pinot Liébault is also allowed. Furthermore, it is allowed to blend in up to 15% of the white varieties Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.

 

The Pinot and Gamay are fermented together. This process starts with a carbonic maceration and continues with a traditional fermentation. The wine is usually released young, and shows little aging potential. Since Passe-Tout-Grains is generally a simple, rather unrefined wine, consider it to be similar to Beaujolais Villages in regards to serving or long-term storage.

 

Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains is allowed to be produced throughout the basic Bourgogne appellation, but most Passe-Tout-Grains are produced from grapes grown in the Côte Chalonnaise, where Gamay makes up almost half of the red grapes."

The berries are distinguished by their russet color when ripe — roux is French for the reddish brown color russet, and is probably the root for the variety's name. The aroma of Roussanne is often reminiscent of a flowery herbal tea. In warm climates, it produces wines of richness, with flavors of honey and pear, and full body. In cooler climates it is more floral and more delicate, with higher acidity. It is a difficult variety to grow, with vulnerability to mildew, poor resistance to drought and wind, late and/or uneven ripening, and irregular yields.

Saignée        This winemaking process involved bleeding off a portion of red wine after only a short period of contact of the juice with the grape skins. Because the color of red wine is derived from pigments in the skins, the juice is only pink not red. This process is how rosé wines are made, the only exception being Champagne where rosé may also be made by blending red and white wines, although I think the best wines are made by the saignée method. The process may also be used to improve the quality of red wines, as it increases the ratio of skins to juice in the vat, so a more deeply colored wine may be obtained.

Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, 50 km southwest of Bordeaux, is a magnificent village perched on a hillside that overlooks the river. Composed of clay and limestone, the soils of these sometimes steep hillsides have massive outcroppings of pure limestone. These layers of limestone are often found in the winegrowing soils of the region, but usually at greater depths. These limestone banks are precious for growing vines, particularly for the Sémillon and Sauvignon grape varieties that appreciate clay-limestone soil. Their slow ripening in autumn is aided by an absence of thunderstorms, which follow a more northerly track.

In the centre is a limestone plateau, surrounded by chalky soils with clay and silt (also called “molasse”). In the northwest of the AOC, a sandy layer covers mostly clay soils. Finally, in the Dordogne Valley to the south, lighter soils contain alluvial stones and sand. Saint-Emilion wines thus have a variety of profiles, from very powerful and concentrated like those grown on the limestone plateau, to refined and delicate, like those from the terroirs to the south.

On the surface, the soils appear light, typical of the Médoc, but, underneath, a layer of clay and limestone enables the vine to take the best of what the earth has to offer. Saint-Estèphe produces robust, powerful wines that have a fine ageing potential. Once considered rustic, these wines are continuing to show refinement and elegance, led by Château Cos d'Estournel.

Saussignac AOC      Saussignac is an AOC in South West France. It is used exclusively for a sweet white dessert wine, similar to Monbazillac but a little drier. The grapes are generally Sémillon which have been affected by botrytis cinerea.

Sauternes AOC        "Sauternes is a sweet wine producing area of the Graves region of Bordeaux. The Sauternes wine region comprises five communes— Barsac, Sauternes, Bommes, Fargues and Preignac. Only Barsac is entitled to use either name. Sauternes is made from Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes that have been affected by Botrytis. Sauternes is one of the few wine regions where infection with noble rot is a frequent occurrence. Production is challenged with widely varying harvests from vintage to vintage.

 

To qualify for the Sauternes label, the wines must have a minimum 13% alcohol level and need to taste noticeably sweet. Wines from Sauternes, especially Château d'Yquem, can be very expensive. In “off” years Sauternes producers will often make dry white wines under the generic Bordeaux AOC. Somewhat similar but less expensive and typically less-distinguished wines are produced in the neighboring regions of Monbazillac, Cérons, Loupiac and Cadillac."

Savennieres AOC     "Savennières AOC (1952) is south and just west of Angers in the heart of the Loire Valley. In the early 20th century, Savennières was known mostly for sweet wine production. Today, dry Chenin blanc is the source of the new, cult popularity appreciating the mineral intensity and aging potential of the wines. Savennières is typically more full-bodied than dry Vouvray, and a significant step up in concentration and quality from basic Anjou blanc. A wine produced from Chenin Blanc in a relatively cold climate, Savennières is relatively high in acidity and tends to be a quite long-lived wine. Located along four southeast facing slopes on the right bank of the Loire river, vineyards in Savennières are composed primarily of schist and volcanic soils. Yields are highly restricted to just 20 hectoliters per hectare which tends to produce more concentrated fruit.  

 

Regular Savennières may not have more than 8 grams sugar per liter.

“Demi-sec” designates 8 to 18 grams sugar per liter, and would typically be perceived as off-dry.

“Moelleux” wines can have 18 to 45 grams sugar per liter, which normally corresponds to semi-sweet.

Wines labeled “doux” have more than 45 grams sugar per liter.

Some producers (such as J. Lohr) utilize carbonic maceration in order to produce a wine with a deep, purple-red color and fruity taste, with flavors of berries and black cherry. Valdiguié in France has a reputation as a workhorse variety grown to attract grants from the European Union, who promptly turned it into industrial alcohol.

Vin Doux Naturel     Vins doux naturel is a lightly fortified wine typically made from white Muscat grape or red Grenache grape in the south of France. The process, called mutage, occurs when a spirit is added to the must during fermentation stopping fermentation. Those grape sugars not converted to alcohol by the action of yeast provide the sweetness. With a vin doux naturel, the spirit accounts for up to 10% or the total volume, but it is traditionally a very strong spirit that is added, often around 95% ABV; as a result the total alcohol content of the finished product is typically 15% ABV. Port, however, is typically 20% grape spirit, but traditionally the spirit used is not so concentrated, often less than 80% ABV, so as a consequence the total alcohol content is also not that much higher than a vin doux naturel, typically 20% ABV.

The code indicates the region of production, the village, the estate, a number unique to the bottling and lastly, the year of tasting. In most cases this will be the year after the vintage. It is important to note that 2 labels can be exactly the same except for the AP number. The number unique to the bottling can vary, especially for sweeter Prädikats. The number will match the fuder (barrel) number, which contains a unique wine because harvesting late in the season will result in great variation in grape quality each day, so each days’ harvest is put into its own individual fuder.

 

The AP number is usually displayed as a group of 5 sets of numbers. 2 577 050 10 05 breaks down like this:

2 indicates the region, in this case the Mosel.

576 indicates the village, in this case Erden.

162 denotes the estate; this number is unique to Dr. Loosen.

40 is the number unique to this bottling.

02 denotes the year of tasting (2002)."

Baden"Baden is one of thirteen anbaugebiete of Germany. By vine plantings, Baden’s 15,906 hectares ranks it only the 3rd largest, but from one end of the region to the other it is easily the largest. Baden also contains the southern-most vineyards in Germany with vines planted almost further south than the southern-most vineyards of Alsace. About 85% of the region's production is done through cooperatives. The style is more international than in the other regions, reflecting the relatively warm climate of Baden. Germany's best ""new wave"" Spätburgunders tend to be made here and in the Ahr.

Baden has larger total plantations of three Pinot varieties than any other German wine region, with almost 55% of the vineyards of Baden planted to Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir, covering 36.8% of Baden's vineyards in 2008), Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) 10.5% and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) 7.3%. Riesling (7.3% in 2008) plays a smaller role than in most other regions. Müller-Thurgau is grown on 17.2% of Baden's vineyards, and plantings have decreased considerably in recent years to be replaced by Spätburgunder and other red grape varieties. Gutedel (Chasselas) is also grown on 6.9% of the vineyard surface, making Baden practically the only region in Germany where Gutedel wines are produced, and the region accounts for over 97% of Germany's plantings of this variety. In total, there are 44% red grape varieties in Baden, and 56% white.

Franconia      Franconia/Franken is one of thirteen anbaugebiete of Germany. Easily identifiable by the tell-tale Bocksbeutel, the quality wines of Franconia are usually made from Silvaner, but also there is some Riesling (only 4.9% of plantings). Most Franconian wines are dry. In German law dry wines are allowed 9 grams of residual sugar, but many German wineries are still using the term Fränkisch trocken (Franconian dry) for wines with 5 grams of residual sugar or less. These can be excellent, firm wines. Because of the special soil and the mild climate along the Main River, the wines should show a very high mineral character. The amount of minerals in the wine is a factor in the quality testing every Franconian wine has to overcome. The Silvaners sometimes have an exotic opulence which makes them quite unlike the bland versions from many other regions. Rieslaner dessert wines can be very successful. Müller-Thurgau is still the dominant grape (30.3%), but Silvaner is definitely the flagship of Franconia (21.0%).

KernerGrape: The Kerner grape is an aromatic white grape variety. Today, Kerner covers about 3.6% of the surface devoted to viticulture. Bred in 1969 in Württemberg and named after a local poet, Justinius Kerner, it is a crossing of Trollinger and Riesling. Compared with Riesling, Kerner can be grown in less favorable sites and yields more. It ripens in early October. The wines are fresh, racy and fruity — not unlike Riesling — yet milder in acidity, with a more pronounced bouquet, often with a Muscat tone. The largest vineyard areas of Kerner are in the Pfalz, Rheinhessen, Württemberg and Mosel regions. It is also grown in Austria (Styria), Switzerland and Italy’s Alto Adige/Südtirol region. It was introduced into Alto Adige/Südtirol in the early 1970s and awarded DOC status in 1993. In 2006 Kerner was the 8th most planted variety in Germany with 4,004 hectares (9,890 acres) and 3.9% of the total vineyard surface.

Mittelrhein    Mittelrhein is one of thirteen anbaugebiete of Germany. This is a small, touristy area around the romantic castles and little towns along the Rhein, with very few quality oriented Riesling growers, who show what is possible in the region. Mittelrhein is dominated by white wine grapes (85%) to a higher extent than any other wine region of Germany with the exception of Mosel. Riesling is the most grown variety at 67% of the vineyards. Mittelrhein is divided into two districts (Bereiche). In the north, four villages which are situated in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia make up the district Siebengebirge, while the bulk of the vineyards, in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, define the district Loreley. Vineyards are situated on both sides of Rhine, with a few vineyards being situated on the banks of Lahn, a tributary of Rhine. Unfortunately, just as in neighboring Mosel, new generations have been slowly but steadily abandoning the demanding work of maintaining the vines on the very steep slopes, preferring instead more secure employment in the cities. Over the past 50 years, the vineyard area of Mittelrhein has decreased by two-thirds. More so than in Rheinhessen, there is one house in Mittelrhein that is known world-wide -- Toni Jost.

Mosel  Mosel is one of thirteen anbaugebiete of Germany. Before 1 August 2007 the region was called Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, but changed to a name that was considered more consumer-friendly. While the wine region is Germany's third largest in terms of production it is clearly the leading region in terms of international prestige. The Mosel is known for its steep slopes overlooking the river. At 65° degrees incline, the steepest recorded vineyard in the world is the Calmont vineyard located within the Leitgeminde of Bremm (Bremmer Calmont). Because of the northerly location of Mosel, the steep slopes, the slate-filled soil and the river itself are key to ripening the fruit. The Riesling wines are often light, low in alcohol, crisp and high in acidity, and often exhibit "flowery" rather than "fruity" aromas. In 2008, the Mosel vineyards covered 9,034 hectares (22,320 acres), making it the fifth-largest of Germany's 13 wine regions. White grape varieties cover 91 percent of the region's total vineyard surface with Riesling accounting for 59.7%. The trend in total vineyard area has until recently been slightly negative over a longer period of time, but it is primarily lesser sites previously planted with "low quality" varieties that have been abandoned in this process.

Müller-Thurgau        Grape: The Müller-Thurgau, or Rivaner, is the second most widely planted grape in Germany and accounts for about a fifth of the total vineyard area. It is named after Professor Müller of Thurgau, Switzerland, who created it in 1882, by crossing Riesling and Gutedel — not, as previously assumed, Riesling and Silvaner. It yields about 30% more than Riesling and ripens earlier, usually in the latter part of September. While it requires less sun and makes few demands of the climate, it does need more rain than Riesling, as well as soil with good drainage. Its wines are generally light, with a flowery bouquet and less acidity than Riesling. Müller-Thurgau often carries a hint of Muscat in its flavor. The wines are best consumed while fresh and young. Dry versions are increasingly marketed under the synonym Rivaner. It is grown throughout German wine country.

Nahe  "Nahe is one of thirteen anbaugebiete of Germany containing only one Bereich (Nahetal) that includes 7 Grosslagen and 328 Einzellagen. Geographically, the region lies in between Mosel and the Rhein regions. The majority of the vineyards in the Nahe wine region are found along the banks of the Nahe river from Martinstein, near the historic village of Monzingen and then down stream to its confluence with the Rhine at Bingen am Rhein. The three main regions are the Upper Nahe, Bad Kreuznach and Lower Nahe. The wine producing areas outside of these subregions includes the Alsenz river area that meets with the Nahe at Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg and the villages of Bockenau, Roxheim, Sommerloch and Wallhausen located several miles northwest of the Nahe.

A characteristic of Nahe is that the soils are very varied due to the region's volcanic origins; this helps Nahe create some of finest wines of Germany, combining racy fruitiness with an almost spicy mineral complexity. Good dry wines are being made along the Nahe, yet like in MSR and the Rheingau it's the sweeter Rieslings that reach the greatest heights. They can compete with the best of those more famous regions. On the region's 4,155 hectares of vineyards in 2008, white grapes rule the Nahe at 75% and Riesling is the most common variety with 27.2%.
