German wines. Where to begin? Indeed, the journey has been adventurous, but German wines have long ranked amongst the finest there are. Already the Romans grew wines on those rolling hills in the Palatinate, in Franconia and along the many rivers and valleys.
Generations of outstandingly passionate winemakers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria have cultivated their traditional vineyards, implemented new methods and philosophies which all resulted in the growing and making of fabulous wines, some of which are so exceptional, they are not even being exported.
Of course, Germany is also famous for its beer and its “purity order”, which has been implemented as early as 1516. All breweries still follow this law to this day and with more than 700 micro-breweries, the craft has become increasingly adventurous.
