The Mittelrhein (or Middle Rhine) is a region (Anbaugebiet) for quality wine in Germany. It is located along a 75 mile (120 km) stretch of the river Rhine, between Bingen and Bonn through the Rhine Gorge, a formation created by erosion, which happened at about the same rate as an uplift in the region, leaving the river at about its original level, and the surrounding lands raised.
