Riesling Statute

In 1997 it was approved by members of the VDP-Nahe decided to offer only Riesling wines from the best vineyards with vineyard description from the 1997 vintage. The other Rieslings of the respective VDP winery were marketed without position description, but instead as local wines or estate wines. The same was true for all other grape varieties, even from top locations. Furthermore, the respective top locations were defined. The criteria in detail were: 100% grapes from classified, 100% Riesling, hand picked, base yield 48 hectoliters per hectare, higher maturity for each grade, recognition by blind tasting, marketing from April of the following year. As a result, the Riesling Statute went in VDP classification model on.
