Valley in Germany named after the river Tauber, where there are extensive vineyards or winegrowing. It stretches 130 kilometres from its source in Weikersholz, municipality of Rot am See, to where it flows into the Main in Wertheim (Baden-Württemberg). According to German wine law, it is divided into five sections, which are assigned to three different cultivation areas. The first vineyards downstream are in Franconia (Steigerwald area), the area between Tauberzell and Creglingen belongs to Württemberg (Kocher-Jagst-Tauber area), from Klingen to Tauberrettersheim again to Franconia (Maindreieck area). The further downstream vineyards between Schäftersheim and Bad Mergentheim again belong to Württemberg. All the vineyards west of Mergentheim to Wertheim belong to the Baden wine-growing region, namely (although one should not be confused by the similarity of names) to the Tauberfranken area.
