High-quality wines are produced in areas of Germany where the climate is suitable, especially in the Southwest along the Rhine and its tributaries. These wines generally have a low alcohol content and a fruity acidity. The most important types of white grape are the Müller-Thurgau and Riesling, which together account for almost 50% of the total wine-growing area. The main types of grape for red wine, which is becoming increasingly popular, are the Spätburgunder and Portugieser. German wine is divided into three grades. The lowest grade is Tafelwein, next is Qualitätswein bestimmter Anbaugebiete – indicated on the bottle by QbA- and the best is Qualitätswein mit Prädikat, eg Kabinett or Auslese. Whether a wine is dry, medium-dry or sweet is shown by the seal on the bottle. In Austria the most important type of grape is the Grüner Veltliner. See: → EISWEIN, FEDERWEISSER, HEURIGER

Wein
Germany, Switzerland, and Austria are wine-producing countries, best known for their white wines. Germany's main wine regions are Franconia, the Rhineland-Palatinate, the Moselle area and Baden-Württemberg. Rhine wine (or hock) is sold in tall brown bottles and wine from the Moselle in green bottles; Franconian Bocksbeutel comes in wide, bulbous bottles. There are two categories of German wine, the cheap Tafelwein (table wine) and the superior Qualitätswein (quality wine). The best wines are designated Qualitätswein mit Prädikat. Sekt is a champagne-like sparkling wine. In August and September there are festivals in German wine towns and villages. Austria grows red and white wines, mainly in the Burgenland, in Styria and around the Neusiedler See where the Heurige is celebrated. More than a third of the total area of grape cultivation is devoted to Grüner Veltliner, a full-bodied, fruity white wine. Wines from Switzerland are mostly drunk locally and are produced in the Thurgau region. The Swiss reputation rests with their spirits, such as Kirsch, Pflümli, Mirabelle, and Enzian
