The Pfalz

There is nothing that is not here.

The Palatinate wine-growing region has many distinctive elements: A long tradition extending back to the Romans, a unique cohesion (the wine-growing zone to the east of the Haardt is 85 kilometers long and just a few kilometers in width), an outstanding market importance (every third bottle of wine bought in Germany originates from the Palatinate region), a particularly mild climate (in some years the amount of sunshine exceeds more than 2000 hours) as well as a remarkable size: With almost 23,400 hectares, the Palatinate wine-growing region is the second largest wine-growing region in Germany and has a forth of the German wine-growing acreage.
