Name for the three water bodies located in the northern Alpine foreland: Obersee, Untersee and Seerhein. These are two different but spatially close lakes, which are connected by the section of the Rhine known as the Seerhein. Both lakes have a bank length of 273 km, of which 173 are in Germany, 28 in Austria and 72 in Switzerland. Together they cover 536 km², which stretch between Bregenz (Vorarlberg, Austria) and Stein am Rhein (Schaffhausen, Switzerland). Both lakes are crossed by the Rhine; the main tributary of the Upper Lake is the Alpenrhein, the outlet of the Upper Lake is the Seerhein - which in turn is the main tributary of...

The wine-growing region is located in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany and is divided into South Baden and North Baden. It stretches almost 400 kilometres from Lake Con stance along the Upper Rhine Plain via the Badische Bergstrasse and Kraichgau to Tauberfranken. The vineyards cover 15,828 hectares. To the north lies the city of Heidelberg with Germany's oldest university, founded in 1386. The Baden Wine Route begins north of this city and leads to Ortenau in southern Baden. As early as the 2nd century, winegrowing spread northwards from Lake Constance. It reached its peak in the 16th century.

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 Riesling x Madeleine Royale. Some synonyms point to the parentage Riesling x Sylvaner, which was wrongly assumed for a long time. Within the European Union, those names that refer to it, such as Riesling-Sylvaner, are no longer permitted. The most important are Müller-Thurgau Rebe, Müller Thurgau Weiß(Germany); Müller-Thurgau Blanc (France); Uva di Lauria (Italy); Riesling-Silvaner, Riesling x Silvaner, Riesling-Sylvaner (New Zealand, Switzerland); Rivaner (Austria,...
