Best German Wines

Most of the times if you say “wine”, most of the people will instantly come up with “France” in their associative thinking…

But despite that popular notion, not all the wine comes from that European country.

In fact, besides the US having a 15% cap in the worldwide wine trade total, such countries as Argentina, Chile, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and even Germany collectively dominate almost a half of the world’s wine market!

Yes, you’ve heard it right. The beer-loving Germany is a home to almost 5% of world’s wine production, including one grape variety that is native to the German’s soil – namely a Riesling…

But now and here, we’ll be talking about much a wider range of German wines, than the famous Riesling, usually coming from a Mosel or Rhinegau regions of the country.

So, among the varieties of both white and red German wines, the most underestimated sorts somehow come from a Franconia region, located in the Western part of the country…

The names that the locals name most often are the Silvaner and Bacchus wines…

Namely, Franconia is known for its incredible range of white wines, as an estimate of 80 percent of the vineyards is planted to white grape varieties.

Another good find among German wrongfully underestimated wines is Müller-Thurgau, which is basically a hybrid that’s a cross of Riesling and an obscure variety called Madeleine Royal.
