Denmark is not important in viticulture, but people there have always liked to consume wine. One of the most prominent wine lovers was King Christian IV. (1577-1648). For his numerous festivities he had Riesling imported by the barrel from the German Middle Rhine wine region. Since August 2000 Denmark has been recognised as a wine-growing region by the European Union. This means that Danish wine can be sold for commercial purposes. The maximum area under vines approved by the EU is 99 hectares. The following are permitted, among others the white wine varieties Auxerrois, Bacchus, Chardonnay, Ehrenbreitsteiner, Goldriesling, Huxelrebe, Kerner, Kernling, Madeleine Angevine, Merzling, Optima, Ortega, Pearl of Zala(Zala Gyöngye), Phoenix, Pinot Blanc, Précoce de Malingre, Regner, Siegerrebe and Solaris, as well as the red wine varieties Cabernet Cortis, Muscat Donskoi, Dunkelfelder, Léon Millot, Maréchal Foch, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Rondo.
