The Nahe has 2,000 years of wine-growing tradition and is protected from cold winds by the high Hunsrück mountains. The predominantly mild temperatures and the abundance of sunshine create an excellent climate for viticulture on the Nahe. Grape varieties such as Riesling, Rivaner and Silvaner grow on around 4,200 hectares in the beautiful Nahe valley. Around three quarters of the vineyard area is planted with the finesse-rich Riesling. The vines grow on volcanic porphyry, loess or clay soils, as well as on shale. This makes it possible to plant a wide range of grape varieties.
The Pieroth Blue Edition occupies a special role in the Heritage Line. The unique blue bottle reflects an interesting historical aspect of the Nahe – the home region of Pieroth. During times when the glass was formed locally, the bottles took on a bluish-green colour. This was due to the mineral element in the local sand – primarily Cobalt. This unusual glass colour gave the wine bottles of the Nahe region a differentiating feature even back then. Pieroth embraced the idea in 1976, commissioning a royal blue bottle that has become a classic and a symbol of Pieroth in many countries.
