Rheinhessen, Germany's largest wine region, has a long history of grapegrowing on the Rhine River that dates as far back as the Romans. The region sits in a valley of gentle rolling hills, where its varied soils and favourable climate enable the growth of many grape varieties – both traditional and emerging.
