Sachsen - German wine-growing region

What the bocksbeutel is to the Franconians, the club-shaped bottle is to the Saxons. This peculiar bottle which resembles a bowling pin was inven- ted in 1931 in the former Weinbau-Versuchs- und Lehranstalt Hoflößnitz (viticulture research and teaching institute) near Dresden. With its museum, wine bar and vineyard Hoflößnitz is still a centre of Saxon wine culture worth visiting. More information about the German wine region of Sachsen at:
