The wide range of grape varieties cultivated in Germany is impressive, from Albalonga to Zweigeltrebe. There are nearly 100 grape varieties grown in normal and/or experimental vineyards.
Schmitt Söhne mainly produces wine from white grapes. Mostly white Riesling grapes are cultivated in our region of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, with Riesling being the best-known German wine abroad. Another important grape is Müller-Thurgau, with White and Grey Burgunder growing in popularity. Grape cultivation differs from region to region, however. Riesling, for example, dominates in the more northern regions of Germany such as our own, Rheingau and the Hessische Bergstrasse.
