Blend

Next Ahr Württemberg is one of those two German growing areas where significantly more red wines than white wines are produced. The proportion of red wines, however, has fallen slightly, as in many other growing areas. Compared to 2009, there were no major changes. Still at the top is the Trollinger. This "Swabian domestic grape", which does not even belong to the top varieties, is cultivated in the highest-quality vineyards. Then follow the Riesling and with Schwarzriesling, Limberger ( Blaufränkisch ) and Spätburgunder three more red wines. A Württemberg specialty is the Schillerwein from white and red grapes.
