Surrounded by famous neighbors like Rheingau, Mosel and Palatinate the Nahe is one of the most fascinating wine regions in Germany, although the Nahe Appellation only exists since the late thirties of the last century. Previously the wines have been boldly sold as Rhine wines. The current borders were only set by the wine law of 1971, which is not a lot of time to build a reputation- the more cause to applaud that this has been achieved. The Nahe is famous for it’s great variation of terroir and soil. In the upper part of the region mainly porphyry, melaphyry and layered sandstone, in the lower part of the stream clay, quartzite and slate are the natural source for fantastic Riesling wines. The best examples are highly praised in the international wine press for their complexity, that integrate as well the elegance of the Rheingau, the refinement of the Mosel as the power of the Palatinate.
