Liebfraumilch Wine Information

Liebfraumilch is named for the Liebfraumilch monastery in Worms, where monks created this sweet, gentle wine. It is a late-harvest style, and therefore Qualitätswein (QbA) wine. They are typically made in the Nahe, Rheingau, Rheinhessen and Pfalz regions. A Liebfraumilch must be at least 70% Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner or Kerner.

The wine should be drunk well chilled, and goes well with pungent cheese, apples, pears, and other crisp fruit. It tends to be drunk either before or after meals, but not during.

Liebfraumilch Note that quality levels on a Liebfraumilch can vary wildly from winery to winery, or even from bottle to bottle from a single winery. It pays to know something about the winery and vintage (and shipping conditions) before buying a bottle or case of this wine.
