A red wine produced in Affental in the German Baden wine region (Ortenau area). Already around 1250, Cistercian nuns of the Baden-Baden-Lichtental monastery planted vines. Near the vineyard there was a pilgrimage chapel visited by many pilgrims. In reference to the "Ave Maria" the valley was popularly called "Ave Tal". This is where the present name Affental (Monkey Valley) developed from. In the past, a red wine was traditionally made here from Blauer Arbst (Pinot Noir clone), today, Blue PinotNoir (Pinot Noir) is used. However, the wine has nothing to do with the grape variety Affenthaler, which probably originated here.
