Description to Württemberg

The cultivation area lies in the federal state Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany, It extends between the Lake Constance and the valley of the Tauber below Rothenburg (Taubergrund). The geographical and climatic conditions are characterized by many river valleys. On its very winding course the tributaries Rems, Enz, Kocher and Jagst stream to the Neckar. On the river banks are many southern slopes with widely separated vineyards. These cover a total of 11,435 hectares of vineyards. In summer, there is enough sun to give red wines power and color. Two thirds of the vineyards are steep slopes or slopes, Around 70 Winzergenossenschaften With its central winery in Möglingen, with 8,500 hectares of cultivated vineyards play a dominant role in production.

Heilbronn is the wine capital of Wuerttemberg and to a certain extent also the German one, because here takes place annually the competition of the DLG (German Agricultural Society). The regional winners of the growing regions compete for the medals. In vineyard there is a teaching and research institute for grape breeding, at the August herald (1902-1973) some successful new breeds such as the Dornfelder were created. The soils are characterized by different Keuperformen and on the middle Neckar by Muschelkalkinseln. The cultivation area consists of six areas with 17 large layers and 207 individual layers.

Named after three rivers, the Kocher-Jagst-Tauber area is located in the north and is the only one specialized in white wines. It is divided into the two major locations Kocherberg and Tauberberg.

Next Ahr Württemberg is one of those two German growing areas where significantly more red wines than white wines are produced. The share has actually risen from 66 to almost 72% in the last ten years. The Rebsortenspiegel has changed in detail but something. Still at the top is the Trollinger with over 21% share. This "Swabian domestic grape", which does not belong to the top varieties in most other growing areas, is cultivated in the highest quality vineyards. Then follow as usual the Riesling and with Schwarzriesling, Limberger ( Blaufränkisch ) and Pinot Noir three more red wines. The strongest climbers are Pinot Noir (63%), Dornfelder (30%) and Acolon (from zero to 220 hectares). The biggest losers are Kerner, Müller-Thurgau and Sylvaner (33% each). As in the other growing areas, many other German new breeds have lost much ground. A Württemberg specialty is the Schillerwein made from white and red grapes. The grape variety status 2009 (0 = less than 0.5 ha,? = Unknown numerical value or for statistical-legal reasons):
