Wine region "Baden"
For centuries, wine has shaped the region, history and culture. This is where the major German wine regions of Baden and Württemberg meet.
The more than 200 winemakers with numerous award-winning wines enjoy an excellent reputation. The wine regions, with over two dozen grape varieties, are divided into: Badische Bergstrasse, Badisches Frankenland, Lake Constance, Breisgau, Erzingen, Kaiserstuhl, Kraichgau, Markgräflerland, Ortenau, Tauberfranken, Tuniberg.
The white wine varieties Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Ruländer are cultivated in Kraichgau. Furthermore, it offers the most diverse red wine range in the wine region Baden. In addition to Pinot Noir, the red varieties Portugieser, Schwarzriesling and Lemberger are grown. Wine plays a big role in many villages.
When hiking or cycling, a visit to a local winemaker - whether in the wine cellar, wine bar or in the courtyard – is recommended. To stop at a so-called Besenwirtschaft or Straußenwirtschaft (wine tavern), can also be a wonderful experience.
