Editor note: Translate to English Duft nach reifen eher dunklen Beeren mit einem Hauch Kirschen sowie pflanzlichen und floralen Nuancen. Glatte, etwas gedeckte, süßliche Frucht, nussige, erdige und getrocknet-pflanzliche Noten, moderates, dennoch leicht trocknendes Tannin, ordentlicher Abgang.

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

The cultivation area is located 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 of vineyard area, most of which extend between Aschaffenburg and Schweinfurt. All vineyards are planted on south-facing valley slopes on the banks of the Main or in side valleys of its tributaries. It is an ancient wine-growing region, as evidenced by a deed of donation from the year 777 to the monastery of Fulda, to which the royal estate...

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 red grape variety is a new variety between Blauer Limberger (Blaufränkisch) x Dornfelder, which was confirmed by DNA analyses carried out in 2012. Synonyms are Cabernet Acolon, WE 71-816-102 and Weinsberg 71-816-102. 1971 the cross was made by the breeders Helmut Schleip and Bernd H. E. Hill at the State Teaching and Research Institute for Viticulture and Fruit Growing in Weinsberg (Württemberg). The plant variety protection was granted in 2002. The early maturing vine produces a colourful red wine similar to Limberg with discreet tannins. The cultivated area in Germany is 469...
