Vast landscapes speckled with vineyards, steep terraces, dry-stone walls dating back centuries and romantic vineyard huts can be found throughout Saale-Unstrut, the northernmost premium wine-growing area in Germany.
The pleasant climate, the soil type, specific yield regulations and the wine-growers' expertise all come together to create distinctive, predominantly dry wines of exceptional quality.
Castles and palaces like Neuenburg Castle, major landmarks such as Naumburg Cathedral and mystical sites including the spot where the Nebra sky disk was found are emblems of the area's eventful cultural past. The best way for visitors to explore the region is along the Saale-Unstrut Wine Route, the Romanesque Road or the Sky Paths.
Main grape varieties: Müller-Thurgau, white Burgundy, Silvaner and Riesling
