Ahr

Ahr er med cirka 560 hektar vinareal et af de mindste vinområder i Tyskland. Ahr adskiller sig fra andre tyske vinregioner, ved at andelen af rødvinsdruer er meget høj. Således er hele 85% af vinarealet beplantet med blå druesorter. De vigtigste i druepaletten er Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), Portugieser og Frühburgunder, mens Riesling er den vigtigste hvidvinssort.

 

Vinregionen er opkaldt efter floden af samme navn, der flyder ind i Rhinen cirka 40 kilometer syd for den gamle Forbundshovedstad Bonn. De stejle marker i den maleriske Ahr-dal er ofte sydvendte. Samtidig regner det sjældent her, og den årlige gennemsnitstemperatur er ret lav.
