Grape varieties

Riesling feels particularly at home in Deidesheim. That is why this variety, unquestionably one of the finest in the world, plays first violin at the Deidesheim Winegrowers' Association: more than 60% of the total area under vine is stocked with this most sought-after variety.

The grape varieties Müller-Thurgau (Rivaner), Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Morio-Muscat, Kerner and Rieslaner complete the white wine taste experience.

The classic Pfalz reds – Dornfelder, Pinot Noir and Portugieser – have had a bit of company in recent years. International varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon have now joined them in the standard range.
