High-quality wines are produced in certain areas of Germany where the climate is suitable, especially in the Southwest along the Rhine and its tributaries. These wines are generally characterized by a low alcohol content and a fruity acidity. The most important types of white grape are the Müller-Thurgau and Riesling, which together account for almost 50% of the total wine-growing area. The main types of grape for red wine, which is becoming increasingly popular, are the Spätburgunder and Portugieser., German wine is divided into three grades to indicate quality. The lowest grade is Tafelwein, then Qualitätswein bestimmter Anbaugebiete -- indicated on the bottle by QbA- and finally Qualitätswein mit Prädikat, eg Kabinett or Auslese. Whether a wine is dry, medium-dry or sweet is shown by the wine seal on the bottle., In Austria the most important type of grape is the Grüner Veltliner, which has a higher alcohol content due to the fact that it is cultivated further south
