Red Wines

In Germany, almost 100 different grape varieties are cultivated on roughly 100,000 hectares with only about 20 of them being of great commercial importance. As to white wines, Riesling and Müller-Thurgau are at the top of the list, whereas Spätburgunder/Pinot Noir and Dornfelder are the most important red wine grapes. Ten years from now, this list can look different altogether, if another strong trend is to develop, such as the current red wine boom.
