370AD was the first documented evidence of Ancient Romans making wine in Germany...
Germany is one of the most northerly wine producing regions in the world. Historically, it has focused on unoaked aromatic white varieties and Pinot Noir, which do not mind the cool, continental climate. However, because of climate change, it is now able to consistently ripen not just aromatic whites and light-bodied reds, but fuller-bodied reds such as Merlot, Syrah, and Malbec.
The country is landlocked and bordered by countries such as the Czech Republic, Belgium, Austria, and France. Save France, its neighbours are better known for beer than wine. Beer is also an important part of German culture and is produced throughout the country. Wine is primarily made in Western Germany, where vines are planted on steep hillsides along rivers. The soil is varied and consists of sandy subsoil, loam, slate, and granite. The hills, rivers, and Vosges mountains are key to Germany’s success as a wine region.
