The History Of Wine in Munich
The history of wine in Munich dates back to the Middle Ages when the city was an important wine trading center. Over the centuries, the city became an important center for the wine trade, and wine was also grown in the area around Munich – for example in Freising on the Domberg. However, during the 19th century wine production in Munich was severely affected by competition from other wine regions in Germany and Europe, as well as by the growing popularity of beer.
In modern times, winemaking is experiencing a renaissance in Bavaria. For example, traditional Baier Wine is once again being grown in the rural wine region of Regensburg.
