Red Riesling

Did you know that there is "Red Riesling" at the Bergstraße? The Riesling-grape in its original version had a reddish skin. Only in the course of time did it become brighter.

But there is a winegrowing area in Germany where the tradition is kept alive: this is the Hessische Bergstraße. Almost ten wineries are there, which still today - and even strengthened again! - cultivate and offer Red Riesling. For more information, please visit the website "Im Land des Roten Rieslings".
