Germany’s most popular white grapes

>> Monday, April 04, 2011

Here is the list of the most popular white wine grape varieties in Germany, counted in volume:

- Muller thurgau, 14%
- Riesling, 13%
- Gruner veltliner, 7%
- Chardonnay, 5%
- Pinot gris (rulander), 4%
- Silvaner, 4%
- Other, 53%

White wine still dominates production but merlot is actually the second most used variety, after M-T. Quite a surprise, as is the quantity of chardonnay. Source: Drinks International.

UPDATE: This listing looks very strange. For an update from the German Wine Institute look here.
