Climate and soil

The soils are characterized by Keupe formations and on the middle Neckar by shell limestone islands. There is continental climate with hot summer, sunny autumn and frosty Winter before. The favorable microclimate along the Neckar and the shell limestone and Keuper soils are particularly suitable for red wines.

The area named after three rivers Kocher-Jagst-Tauber is in the north and is the only one specializing in white wines. It is divided into two major locations, Kocherberg and Tauberberg.

Blend

Next Ahr Württemberg is one of the two German wine-growing regions, where considerably more red wines than white wines are produced. The proportion of red wine varieties, however, has decreased slightly, as in many other growing regions. There were no major changes compared to 2009. The Trollinger is still at the top. This "Swabian house grape", which is not found in most other growing areas and is potentially not one of the top varieties, is grown in the highest quality locations. This is followed by Riesling and three other red wine varieties: black Riesling, Limberger ( Blaufränkisch ) and Pinot Noir. A Württemberg specialty is Schillerwein from white and red grapes.
