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.
