The “Pfalz” (Palatinate) region has a long tradition extending back to the Romans, a unique geography (the wine-growing zone is 85 kilometres long and just a few kilometres wide), an exceptional market importance (every third bottle of wine consumed in Germany originates from this large wine region!), and a very mild climate (in some years the amount of sunshine exceeds more than 2,000 hours). With about 23,000 hectares, Palatinate is the second largest wine-growing region in Germany. Above all, the Palatinate region is the “Riesling country“ par excellence, here one can find some of the most sought-after Rieslings of Germany, and with more than 5,000 hectares it is one of the largest coherent Riesling growing areas in the world.
