Franken

A traditional Franken wine is easy to spot – it comes in a Bocksbeutel, a short, rounded flask. What’s in the bottle? Odds are it will not be a Riesling, for while that variety predominates around Germany, Franken’s growing season is rarely long enough to accommodate this late-ripening grape. Instead, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Rivaner and other white varieties are used to craft wines ranging in style from mild and fruity to dry and zesty.
