Impressions from the German Wine Road

The Palatinate is the most extensive wine growing region of Germany and produces almost one-third of the total output. A long reach of good vine growing country, calcareous, protected, facing the sun, extends along the foot of the Haardt. The German Wine Road (Deutsche Weinstraße) begins at Schweigen on the French frontier at a monumental gateway (Weintor) and ends west of Worms at Bockenheim.
