Wine

850 years of winemaking in Saxony – discovering enjoyment

Centuries of experience, good soil and the right climate are ideal conditions for making special wines – and all in one of Europe’s smallest winegrowing regions. Under the painstaking care of 1,860 winegrowers, an area that covers only 511 hectares produces genuinely rare wines. Among the many grape varieties at home in the Elbe valley are Sächsischer Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Weißburgunder, Dornfelder and Traminer. An outstanding and recently revived variety is the seldom-found Goldriesling grape, now only grown in appreciable quantity in Saxony.
