Germany - old world wine
German wine is primarily produced in the southwest of Germany, along the river Rhine and its tributaries. Germany has about 1,020 square kilometres of vineyards, which is around one tenth of the vineyard surface in Spain, France or Italy.
Germany is the eighth largest wine-producing country in the world with white wines accounting for almost two thirds of the total production due to Germany’s cool, wet climate.
Germany is also renowned for their sweeter style of wines, which distinguish them from other wine producing countries.
