The Middle Rhine is the northernmost wine-growing region on the Rhine and begins not far south of the former federal capital Bonn. In the south, the Mittelrhein merges with the Rheingau. The Mittelrhein may not have the prominence of the Mosel, Rheingau or Pfalz, but the wines don't mind - they are exceptionally good.
With a total vineyard area of 467 hectares, the Mittelrhein is the second smallest wine-growing region in Germany, with over two-thirds being Riesling, followed by Pinot Noir, Müller-Thurgau and white Burgundy varieties. Find out more about Middle Rhine Wines
