Canton (also Baselbiet) with the capital Liestal in the north-west of Switzerland. The widely scattered vineyards cover 80 hectares and belong to the wine region of German-speaking Switzerland. The predominant red wine variety is Pinot Noir, with small quantities of Müller-Thurgau (here Riesling x Sylvaner) and Chasselas. A well-known producer is the Domaine Nussbaumer in the municipality of Aesch.
