Württemberg

Even though Württemberg, north of Stuttgart, is Germany’s fourth-biggest wine region, most of its wine is consumed locally. It produces typically slightly rustic dryish Riesling and light sometimes sweetish red and pink wine made most commonly from the local Trollinger vine. However, the reds are improving, especially those made from Frühburgunder and even some Bordeaux varieties. Fellbacher Lämmler, Fürst zu Hohenlohe-Oehringen and Schnaitmann make particularly distinguished wine.

Hessische-Bergstrasse is a small and scattered wine region north of Württemberg in the state of Hessen producing mainly dry Rieslings, quite like those of the Rheingau to the north, for local sale, particularly in Stuttgart.
