Venerable viniculture in Saxony: for over 850 years
Wine in Dresden Elbland
Wine growing region Saxony
500 hectares of pure quality
Grapes thrive like nowhere else in the balmy Dresden-Elbe-Valley climate; indulging in over 1600 hours of sunshine each year. This part of Saxony, between Pirna and Diesbar-Seußlitz as one of the 17 different winegrowing strongholds, is also the warmest in the region. All of this is made possible by the 1860 wine growers, 96% of whom operate on a very small scale and make nurturing the sensitive wines their vocation.
Many grape varieties find their ideal home between the Elster Valley and Meissen: Mueller-Thurgau, Riesling and Pinot Blanc, Dornfelder and Traminer – they leave you wanting more! We can also revisit a rare treasure in Goldriesling – which is scarce nowadays anywhere else but Saxony.
A good hint: To really get on board with the region and its people, the best is to visit one of the popular autumn wine festivals!
