Varietal: Scheurebe
A 20th century German crossing created by Georg Scheu, Scheurebe is capable of producing opulent forest fruit flavors of blackcurrants, which can sometimes be complemented with grapefruit and citrus aromas. Originally thought to have been a crossing of Riesling and Silvaner, recent DNA profiling suggests the second parent is not Silvaner but an unknown wild vine.

Country: Germany
Viticulturally unique, Germany's wine has improved in leaps and bounds thanks to the dedication of its leading producers and a succession of fortuitously warm growing seasons. Although Germany's focus is still in producing white wine, plantings of dark skinned varieties such as Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir) are increasing rapidly. Riesling, Germany's classic varietal, has maintained a steady fifth of the total area under vines. In second place, Muller-Thurgau (a crossing between Riesling and Silvaner, Germany's third most popular white grape) has seen a dramatic decline. Spatburgunder is taking its place in many parts of southern Germany including Baden and Pfalz. More than doubling in the last 20 years, it is now the country’s third most popular variety overall, taking up roughly half the acreage of Riesling. Despite this change, US's imports still mainly reflects their white wine production, with Riesling remaining the most popular. For some of our bestselling regions see wines from the Mosel and Rheingau.

Region: Rheinhessen


Type: White
White wine is a wine whose color can be pale-yellow, yellow-green, and yellow-gold colored. The wine is produced from a variety of grape varieties. The flavor and color comes from the juice of the grape and sometimes the skin of the grape as well. Interestingly, not all white wine comes from white grapes. Some select red grapes are used as in Champagne.
