Warm and sunny Baden, the southemmost region, stretches some 400 km (240 miles) along the Rhine from the Bodensee (Lake Constance) to Heidelberg, taking in the Black Forest as well as the vine-clad terraces of the Kaiserstuhl, a volcanic massif. As in neighbouring Alsace and Switzerland, Baden has a great tradition of wine and food. Dry, food-compatible Pinots (“Burgunders”), red and white, have long been popular throughout the region. Rivaner vineyards are also widespread, while other classic wines, e.g. Riesling, Silvaner and Gutedel, are more localised.
