The Middle Rhine Valley is pure Rhine Romanticism. The growing region stretches over 120 km from Bingen to Bonn. The river winds through the history-rich valley past steep vineyards, castles, palaces and the world famous Loreley. The southern section of the unique cultural landscape was named a UNESCO World Heritage Region in 2002. In the heart of the region is Koblenz, the city on the Rhine and Moselle. Riesling, in particular, grows under optimal conditions. It emits a mineral, finely aromatic and vivacious acidity. Covering 70% of the growing space, it is the number one grape type in the Middle Rhine Valley. Additionally, Müller-Thurgau, Kerner and Pinot thrive here. The most important red grape type is Pinot Noir.
August Perll Winery
The August Perll winery has been a family business in Boppard on the Middle Rhine for generations. The winery's main building, built in 1606, still adorns the labels of the wines today. Viticultural technician Thomas August Perll has turned his passion for steep-slope viticulture into his profession and accompanies the development from grape to wine with great dedication. On around 10 hectares of vineyards, the family mainly cultivates Riesling in the impressive steep slope Bopparder Hamm. The slate soil is often interspersed with pumice and gives the Riesling its incomparable minerality and fruity aroma. The wines are vinified in the classic style and have already received several awards from the wine guides Vinum Weinguide, Falstaff, Eichelmann and Gault Millau.
