GERMANY

German wine is primarily produced in the west of Germany, along the river Rhine and its tributaries, with the oldest plantations going back to the Roman era. Approximately 60 percent of the German wine production is situated in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, where 6 of the 13 regions (Anbaugebiete) are situated. Germany as the eighth largest wine-producing country in the world. White wine accounts for almost two thirds of the total production. Among enthusiasts, Germany's reputation is primarily based on wines made from the Riesling grape variety, which at its best is used for aromatic, fruity and elegant white wines that range from very crisp and dry to well-balanced, sweet and of enormous aromatic concentration.

    Flörsheim-Dalsheim, located in the southern part of the Rheinhessen, is an up and coming area due to the efforts of a handful of ambitious young vintners, Daniel and Bianka Schmitt among them. The winery was certified organic beginning in 2007 and Demeter Biodynamic® certified in 2012, one of only 75 properties in Germany to hold the Demeter certification. The Schmitts cultivate 15 hectares of vineyard land and produce 50,000 bottles per year. Their wines are food-oriented and meant to pair with a wide variety of dishes. Schmitt epitomizes the new wave of German producers who are creating the highest quality wines from what nature has to offer, with as little intervention as possible. As Daniel puts it, the philosophy of the winery is, “Wine just from grapes!”
