Welcome to Saxony

"Rare gems. Wines from Saxony" - the Saxon wine region is the most north-easterly and one of the smallest in Europe. People have been producing wine here on the River Elbe for 850 years. In the last 400 years in particular, the region has been characterised by terraced vineyards and dry-stone walls. Special features include the vineyards divided into small plots that are cultivated by more than 3,000 small independent growers. Saxony has a broad range of grape varieties. This is the only place where goldriesling is still produced. The majority of Saxon wines are drunk locally, a rarity in Germany.
