The oldest winery in Germany dates back to the Roman era, and most local types are produced in the west of the nation along the regions of Rhine and its tributaries. Six of the 13 regions (Anbaugebiete) are located in the Rhineland-Palatinate, where almost 60% of the wines of Germany are produced. The country's average yearly output of the drink is 10 million hectoliters, or 1.3 billion bottles, making it the eighth-largest nation in the world’s wine map. Nearly two-thirds of the overall volume is white varieties.

White grape types account for around 66% of the local vineyard area. Due to this most customers think the sweet tasting Riesling represents all of the country’s brands. Yet, there is another side to this land, one with a wide range of reds and rosés, waiting to be explored. This demonstrates that Riesling is only a small portion of the country's viticultural history. The most prominent grape varieties for Germany wines to look for include Pinot Blanc, Blaufränkisch, Silvaner, and Trollinger.
