Pfalz

Pfalz ligger placeret mellem Rheinhessen i nord, Baden på den anden side af Rhinen mod øst, og Alsace i syd. Regionen er med et areal på 23.500 hektar det næststørste vindistrikt i Tyskland.

I Pfalz findes det største Rieslingareal – ikke bare i Tyskland – men i hele verden. Ca. 5.500 hektar er således beplantet med druesorten. Foruden Riesling er Dornfelder og burgundersorterne Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) og Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) vigtige druesorter i regionen. Overordnet set kan man inddele vinregionen i to underområder: Den nordlige del, som kaldes for Mittelhaardt, og den sydlige del, som kaldes Südliche Weinstrasse. Der er flere end 600 vinstokke per indbygger i Pfalz.
