In Germany there are 13 wine-growing regions for quality wines, which are:
Ahr, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Middle Rhine, Moselle, Nahe, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Saale-Unstrut, Saxony and Württemberg.
What was called "Mosel-Saar-Ruwer" in the 1909 wine law of that time has been united under the term "Mosel" since the wine law amendment of 09.08.2006.
The subdivision of the Mosel wine region is made into six areas:
Cochem Castle, Bernkastel, Ruwer Valley, Saar, Upper Moselle and Mosel Gate
