German Wine

Germany is the producer of some of the most admired wines in the world. These are its Rieslings, both sweet and dry, from top sites and producers. Though these wines typically have the most delicate and elegant of frames, they support incredible intensity, purity of fruit, and nuanced expression of terroir. It’s doubtful that any other wine, except perhaps the greatest Burgundy, can send wine writers into such fits of lyrical frenzy. 

Germany has been known for its great Rieslings for hundreds of years. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the prestige and prices Germany’s Rhine wines equalled those of the best Bordeaux.

Germany is also known for the travesty that is Liebfraumilch. That stuff became common -- but mostly as an export -- after Germany’s wine industry was devastated by two world wars.

Particularly after World War II, many growers adopted early-ripening, high-yielding hybrids such as Muller-Thurgau, which edged out the noble Riesling grape. These low-quality grapes Read more »

  • What I find really different about German wines is that unlike other countries, the best producers are not all known. In Bordeaux, California, Burgundy, Oregon etc, it is pretty much known who produces the best wines. Even though there are many famous wineries in Germany producing a high quality product, there are many unknown wineries making gr...

  • Markus Molitor Riesling Spätlese Trocken Zeltinger Sonnenuhr 2016

    Snoothrank:

    A colour of the slightest lemon tincture, this Markus Molitor spätlese(late harvest) Riesling from Wehlen-Sonnenuhr has an intriguing nose of wet pebbles (nasse Kieselsteine), gasoline and apple pie. Entry shows the elegance: there is some tannin (almond), apple spice and mineral (metal) on the palate. Complex.Hard to beat, at this price and wi... Read More

    Wine review by martins2002


  • The trend toward trocken in Germany has been going on for over 30 year now and I'm still not impressed. It's as though Germany wants to be Burgundy. It is rare that I taste a great trocken/halb trocken or feinherb wine. They have trouble competing with the warmer climate dry whites. Most drier German white wines have been under ripe and/or lacki...

  • I spent 6 years in Germany in the Hunsruck mountains at an Air Base in the 1980's and fell in love with the wines from the Mosel, Rhine, and Nahe regions. I would like to find some purveyor of German wines here in Texas that I could purchase some of the wines from those regions consistantly. Anyone with information would be greatly appreciated.

  • I am looking for a nice Spatlese. I was at a home show in Orlando last month and tried a Germany Spatlese that knocked my off my feet. Can someone recommend me a Spatlese or something sweeter from Germany? Thanks
