The Weissburgunder grape is an ancient variety that belongs to the Burgundy family of grapes. Today in Germany, Weissburgunder plantings cover 8,626 acres (3,491 hectares) or 3.4% of Germany's wine regions - mainly in the Baden, Pfalz, and Rheinhessen regions.

Weissburgunder wines are pale to light yellow in color. Typical for this wine is its slightly nutty fragrance. Dry Weissburgunder wines make excellent dinner wines. It fits well with seafood, veal, pork, poultry, pasta, and asparagus. Sweeter Spätlese and Auslese varieties pair well with lamb and game.
