Wine[edit]

Main article: Mosel (wine region)

Mosel is Germany's oldest wine region. [2] The Moselle and its tributaries, Saar, and Ruwer, flow through a traditionally cultivated land for over 2,000 years. [3] Multiple archeological finds, including several wine presses from antiquity, provide evidence for a longstanding winemaking tradition in the European Mosel valley.

Vineyard Areas[edit]

See also: List of Mosel vineyards

According to wine law, the growing area is divided into five areas:Bernkastel, Saar, Ruwer, Obermosel, and Moseltor. The Upper Moselle and Moselle Gate form the 'Southern Wine Moselle'.

Saar

On the Saar, viticulture is carried out between Serrig and Konz. The vineyards are often located on the southern slopes of side valleys. The soil consists mainly of dark Devonian slate. In some locations, there is also diabase, a rock of volcanic origin.

Ruwer

Moselle Region Germany

The Ruwertal east of Trier is the smallest sub-region of the wine-growing area with 180 hectares of vineyards. Coming from the Hunsrück, the small river Ruwer meanders through a narrow valley, lined with meadows, vines, and forests, and flows into the Moselle at Trier.

Southern Wine

The area in the southwest of the Moselle region has many geological differences. The valley is wider, the slopes less steep than on the further course of the river. In the border triangle of Germany, Luxembourg, and France, vines grow on dolomite rock.

Mosel

Middle Moselle

The Middle Moselle forms the heart of the cultivation area. Between Trier and Briedel, most of the vines in the growing area are located on around 5,700 hectares of vineyards. The soil of the steep slopes largely consists of weathered slate.

Terrace

From Zell, the Moselle valley becomes increasingly narrow. In many cases, the slopes are so steep that the vines can only be found on narrow terraces secured by dry stone, which gives Terrace Moselle its name. According to wine law, the area is called 'Burg Cochem'.

The main grape varieties grown in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wine-growing region include Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Elbling, Kerner, Bacchus, Dornfelder, and Blauer Spätburgunder.[4]
