Point of History - The first Oktoberfest was held in Munich, Germany, in the year 1810 to honor Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. German immigrants brought the tradition with them to the United States.

German wines - specifically Riesling covers the board. Because Riesling is such a dominant variety and can produce anything from a dry wine to a dessert wine, many German labels indicate the level of sweetness on the label. Look for words like trocken (dry), halbtrocken or feinherb (semi-dry) and mild or lieblich (sweet). Wines that come in a small bottle are dessert wines and sweet by nature.
Germany is made up of 13 major producing regions with strict regulation over quality control. The three oldest and most important regions are the Mosel, the Rheingau and Rheinhessen. A good rule of thumb is the following:

• The Mosel: Typically Mosel wines have incredible length on the palate, are wonderfully crisp and finish with prickly zest of fresh sliced pear and apple.

• The Rheingau: The typical finish of a dry style Rheingau will be that of fresh sliced granny smith apples. In the semi dry form, the body is well balanced and the finish has great length and charm. In the sweeter style, you will have the typical tropical fruit aromas.

• Rheinhessen: Wines from Rheinhessen are best known for the earthy, mineral composition found in the soil, and similar to that in Burgundy.
While the Rheingau and the Mosel produce mostly Riesling, Rheinhessen vintners tend to a more diverse portfolio of grapes. It is one of Germany’s premier sites for the production of Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and now getting a lot of attention on the international stage. Source: Wine Bible.
