Hessische BergstrasseThe tiny region Hessische Bergstrasse takes its name from an old Roman trade route known as the strata montana, or mountain road.
It is a pretty landscape of vines and orchards scattered on hilly slopes � famous for its colorful and fragrant springtime blossoms, the earliest in Germany. Riesling and Müller-Thurgau account for two-thirds of the area under vine. The wines tend to be fragrant and rich, with more body and an acidity and finesse similar to those of the Rheingau.
