Württemberg wine region

Württemberg is one of the 13 winegrowing regions in Germany. Up to 80 per cent of the wine it produces is red, a greater volume than anywhere else in Germany. Traditional methods are still used to make many of the wines here, including the barrique wines, for which the grape harvest is stored in small old oak barrels. The Württemberg region is home to all manner of quaint wine taverns and inns selling home-produced wine, which make the perfect stopping point on a walk or a bike ride.
