Cool-climate wines from the northernmost vineyards of Germany
Saxony, known as Sachsen in Germany, is one of the smallest winegrowing regions in Germany and – located near Dresden – the north-easternmost in Europe. Only Saale-Unstrut between Naumburg and Freyburg is more northerly as an officially recognized quality winegrowing region – approx. 160 kilometers west of Sachsen. Both growing regions are characterized by a continental climate with cold winters, hot summers and strong temperature fluctuations between day and night. Often the wines from these two regions are fresh, fragrant and filigreed, aromatic and intense – VDP.Wines well worth seeking out and tasting!
