Ahr - red wine paradise

The redwine-region Ahr is one of the smallest of Germany's wine-growing regions, with vineyards extending along the steep hillsides that line the Ahr River as it flows into the Rhine south of Bonn.

near Ahrweiler

Most of the vineyards grow red grapes - Spätburgunder (Pinot noir) and Portugieser - producing red wines of light charm and racy fruitiness. Lively, fresh Riesling and Müller-Thurgau are the white wines grown here. Nearly all of the region's wine is consumed locally.

Wine: velvety to fiery Spätburgunder (Spatburgunder); light, pleasant Portugieser; fresh white wines.
