Editor note: Translate to English Zurückhaltender, jugendlicher Duft von Apfeldrops mit mineralischer Note. Klare, geschmeidige Frucht, leicht spritzig, elegante Säure, mineralisches Rückgrat, relativ kräftiger Körper, fest strukturiert und nachhaltig, harmonisch, ausgezeichnete Länge. Schöner, ernstzunehmender Essensbegleiter.

The German wine-growing region of Franconia used to be divided into the three areas of Maindreieck, Mainviereck and Steigerwald with 23 Großlagen and 216 Einzellagen. In November 2011, the members of the Franconian Winegrowers' Association decided on a new arrangement. The three old areas will be replaced by 12 much smaller ones. These will also replace the 23 large vineyards in the medium to long term. The old areas once played a role in the predominant marketing of Franconian table wine, but they had lost that role for some time. Before this conversion, the following description applied to the Maindreieck area:

The growing region lies on the northern edge of the state of Bavaria in Germany and is crossed by the Main river in a large W-shape. A special feature is that the Bavarian vineyards on Lake Constance around Lindau belong to the Württemberg growing region. The vineyards cover 6,130 hectares, most of which stretch between Aschaffenburg and Schweinfurt. All are planted on south-facing valley slopes on the banks of the Main River or in side valleys of its tributaries. It is an ancient wine-growing region, as evidenced by a deed of gift from 777 to the Fulda monastery, to which the royal estate of Hammelburg with eight vineyards (Schloss...

Germany, or rather the area that is now part of it, has a wine culture that is over two thousand years old. But even before that, imported wine was drunk, as evidenced by a Greek clay wine bottle from around 400 BC found in a Celtic grave. The oldest vineyards were on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their long valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic wine-growing areas today. Viticulture was founded by the colonisation of Gaul by the Greeks and then brought to perfection by Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...

The white grape variety is a new breeding between Schiava Grossa (Trollinger) x Riesling, which was most recently confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2018. Synonyms are Herold Triumpf, Kerner Bijeli, Kernerrebe, Trollinger x Riesling Renano S 25/30, Weinsberg S 25 and (first name) Weißer Herold. The cross was made in 1929 at the Staatliche Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt in Weinsberg (Württemberg) by the breeder August Herold (1902-1973). Plant variety protection was granted in 1969. The name was given after the Swabian doctor and wine writer Justinus Kerner...
