Also known as:  Müllerrebe, Pinot Meunier

Despite its name, the Schwarzriesling grape has no relation to the Riesling grape. It actually belongs to the Burgundy family of grapes and is believed to have been first bred over 2,000 years ago.

About 5,989 acres (2,424 hectares) or 2.4% of the German wine regions are covered with Schwarzriesling vines, primarily in Baden and Württemberg.

Schwarzriesling wine is ruby red in color with a fruity aroma. Different varieties of wines are produced, including rosé and sparkling wines. Schwarzriesling wines go well pork and lamb dishes, as well as mild cheeses. It is a great alternative to the Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) wine.
