Baden - German wine-growing region

Among the excellent white wines from Baden is the “Klingelber- ger”. This is simply a Riesling known by that name in the Ortenau. The name stems from the Klingelberg vineyard, part of the Schlossberg at Durbach where Margrave Carl Friedrich of Baden, master of the Staufenberg Castle winery, had Riesling planted in 1782. The fact that this vineyard was first planted with only a single variety, was an innovation at that time. More information about the German wine region of Baden at: www.sonnenmaennchen.de
