Riesling Statute

In 1997 the members of the VDP-Nahe decided to only offer Riesling wines from the best vineyards with location descriptions from the 1997 vintage. The other Rieslings from the respective VDP wineries were marketed without location names, but instead as local wines or estate wines. The same was true for all other grape varieties, even from prime locations. The relevant prime locations were also defined. The criteria in detail were: 100% grapes from a classified location, 100% Riesling, hand picked, basic yield 48 hectoliters per hectare, higher ripeness for each quality level, recognition through blind tasting, marketing from April of the following year. As a result, the Riesling Statute went to VDP classification model on.
