Not only the high culture from the Middle Ages to modern times, also the wine culture has a centuries-old tradition in the mild south of Saxony-Anhalt. The knowledge of wine & enjoyment is passed on, cultivated and intensified from generation to generation. More than 60 wineries guarantee the high quality of the Saale-Unstrut wines.
