Named after Mosel River, the region is the third largest producer of wine in Germany, but the most well-known. The cool continental climate is ideal for Riesling, the noble grape of Germany, and, in turn, is the dominant grape in this region. The Riesling here produces wine with notes of floral, green fruit and stone fruit. This region has a reputation for producing sweeter styles of wine too. Mosel’s common varieties include Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, Spätburgunder.
