Rheinhessen Region

​The German wine region Rheinhessen is the largest of all thirteen wine growing regions in Germany (“anbaugebiete”/on-bou-gi-bēt-ǝ/). It is a vast area that sits in a large bend of the Rhein River around Worms, Mainz and Bingen characterized by rolling hills. The Rheinhessen is bordered on the North by the Rheingau across the Rhein, to the West by the Nahe, and to the South by the Pfalz. Its most important grape varietals are müller-thurgau (“rivaner”) and riesling.
