Charlemagne ordered the cultivation of Burgundy vines

The red wine town on the Rhine

Tradition suggests that Charlemagne ordered the cultivation of Burgundy vines in Ingelheim while visiting his imperial palace. With his Capitulare de villis vel curtis imperii, he also adopted a land and economic system for the royal courts of the emperor, which laid the foundation for the wine law. Karl's priority was cleanliness and hygiene - the basic requirements for today's quality wines.
