The vineyards of the German region of Württemberg are located along the slopes of the Neckar River. What makes this area special is the fact that almost half of its vineyards are planted to red grape varietals including the Lemberger, Portugieser, Trollinger, Müllerrebe (Pinot Meunier), and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). The region also produces white wines from the Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Kerner and Silvaner grapes. The wines of the region are known to be fruity, hearty and powerful with a distinctively earthy finish.
