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 of vines, most of which extend between Aschaffenburg and Schweinfurt. All the vineyards 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...

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...

First and foremost, this term is associated with the name of a grape variety. In fact, it is an umbrella term for various varieties, crossings or new breeds with Muskateller participation and also not so rarely unrelated grape varieties. Therefore, one cannot speak of a group of varieties and certainly not of a Muskateller family (the same phenomenon, by the way, also applies to the four name groups Lambrusco, Malvasia, Trebbiano and Vernaccia). There are Muscat varieties with berries in every conceivable shade of white, yellow, grey, green, pink, red, brown, purple,...
