 Luxembourg    [LUHK-suhm-burg]

This tiny country doesn't make much wine, and what is produced is similiar to that of their German neighbors to the east. The vineyards are located along the Moselle River, which forms the border with Germany. The main varieties are AUXERROIS BLANC, ELBLING, Rivaner (MÜLLER-THURGAU, RIESLING, Rülander (PINOT GRIS), and Traminer (GEWÜRZTRAMINER). Only white wines are produced, and, like their German counterparts, Luxembourg wines are light, fruity, and low in ALCOHOL-some are turned into decent SPARKLING WINES. Luxembourg consumes more wine than it produces, so few of these wines are found outside of Luxembourg or its neighbor Belgium.
