Read about Baden
Baden is Germany’s southernmost wine region. It comprises a long, slim strip of vineyards nestled between the hills of the Black Forest and the Rhine River, stretching some 400km from north to south. It has many soil types and grape varieties, though almost half of the vineyards are planted with one of the various Pinot varieties. The growing season tends to see plenty of sun and warmth. Although white plantings outnumber reds, about a third of the region is planted to Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder), which can ripen to produce velvety, full-flavoured reds while retaining vibrant acidity. Our Baden producer is one of Germany’s standout Pinot Noir makers: Weingut Bernhard Huber.
