Known for their wide range of Riesling, first documented in the 15th century, there's a lot more to the white wine of Germany that you initially might think. Yes, there are plenty of quality Riesling from producers across the regions, notably around the Mosel, but there are plenty of other quality white wines too and we believe the range available through The Fine Wine Company shows off some of the finest that Germany has to offer.
With over 70% of all wine produced in Germany being different varieties of white, our range shows off the wide variety available with Liebfraumlich amongst the many different flavours and strengths of Rielsing on offer. Different wineries are known for the individual character of their German whites whether that's Kabinett (earliest, lightest picked grapes) or Spätlese (late picked). Our range encompasses offerings from across the wine growing regions, from Pfalz to Rheinhessen and offering the many varieties of ripeness.
