Kloster Pforta

Saale-Unstrut is an unknown wine production area in the former East Germany. The area gets its name from two rivers, Saale and Unstrut, along which vines are cultivated on the rising slopes. The total number of vineyards in the area is less than 700 hectares, but the history of viticulture is long like the rest of Germany, as the first records of wines in the area can be found as early as 998. Saale-Unstrut is Germany's northernmost wine-growing region and thus also the northernmost region in Europe where Vitis Vinifera grapes are cultivated. Traditionally, many of the region's wines are made in the Spätlese and Auslese style, where the residual sugar in the wines balances their noticeable acidity.

The wine production history of the Kloster Pforta monastery also goes back as far as 850 years. The farm has the largest unified nursery area in the region, which covers up to 50 hectares. The farm cultivates 19 different grape varieties and is known as a symbol of the region's diversity. The most cultivated grape variety in Saale-Unstrut is Müller-Thurgau, although Viinitie's selections include Kloster Pfortan Weissburgunder or Pinot Blanc.
