Nahe

The wine region of Nahe in south west of Germany has over 300 vineyards, and runs along the Nahe River, which helps moderate the temperate climate. The river Nahe runs parallel to the river Mosel and the two wine regions are only 40km apart, with Nahe to the south east of Mosel.

The three main regions in Nahe are Upper Nahe (diverse soil types including sandstone, slate, melaphyre and porphyry), Bad Kreuznach (clay- and loess-based soils) and Lower Nahe (quartzite and slate soils). There is so much geological variation in Nahe that there is little uniformity in style, although Riesling tends to produce the finest wines. We tend to import a majority of Rieslings for this reason, although Pinot Gris, Sylvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Graue burgunder and more recently Kerner are also grown in the region.

Whites make up 75% of the vines, with Riesling the most widely planted. This was not always the case with Müller-Thurgau and Sylvaner each being the most widely planted at different times over the last century.

The region, as with Mosel can produce fantastic Eiswine (ice wine) though, due to the astronomical production costs, good examples will come at a considerable cost.
