Many car enthusiasts know the region of Wurttemberg because it is home to Mercedes and Porsche, but the wines grown in the area in and around Stuttgart are some of Germany's best kept secrets.

In Germany, famous for the white wines it produces, Wurttemberg is the dark sister.

Some 70% of the region’s 28,300 acres are planted with red grape varieties: Trollinger (Schiava or Vernatsch), Schwarzriesling (Pinot Meunier), Lemberger (Blaufränkisch), and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir).

If you are about to leave -- turning up your nose at the thought of German red wines -- stay a moment longer.

If you are tasting wines that resemble vinegar when compared to the best of the regions production ... you need to taste the better wines. Yes, there are a great many wines that are not stars, but where in the world is that not true? The top rated German reds can and are competing with the best - and bringing home awards.

If traveling through the area, the wine school in Weisberg is the place to learn more about pioneering efforts to bring to full fruition the regional red Trollinger grape and bring German red wine to the level of world class.

Explore the sights, tastes and wines of this region and be open to some wonderful surprises...
