Mosel
Mosel is the most famous of Germany's 13 official wine regions and is also the third largest in terms of production. The Mosel has a very cool, northern continental climate and such slopes are very effective in optimizing the vines’ exposure to sun, facilitating the ripening of the grapes. One disadvantage of such steep vineyard sites is that they are inaccessible to machinery, meaning as much as seven times the amount of manual labor is required to tend them, compared to level vineyards. The Mosel region is most famous for its Riesling wines, but Muller-Thurgau is also widely planted. The best Mosel wines are some of the finest white wines in the world. Light and low in alcohol, they can be intensely fragrant with beguiling floral and mineral notes, and a wonderful balance of sweetness and acidity.
