A total of 13 wine-growing regions gives Germany its diverse range of wines. The most scenic is the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley, home of the Loreley rock, while Rheinhessen is the largest. Both these regions are set within Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany's number one wine-producing region with a total of six distinct vineyard areas. It is here that the German Wine Queen is crowned at the annual German Grape Harvest Festival. Every year since 1950 these young German women have been selected to represent the nation's wines around the globe for a twelve-month term.
