Bordered by Rheinhessen on the north and France on the south and west, the Pfalz's vineyards sweep across this pretty, peaceful land for nearly 50 uninterrupted miles and produce more wine than any other region in Germany. The northern half of this region is home to some of the best vineyard sites. The villages of Wachenheim, Forst, Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg, from where this wine is sourced, are well-known for Riesling wines which combine substance and finesse. The word Pfalz is a derivation of Palast, or palace, and comes from the Latin word "palatium".
