German wines have been around since the Romans, who first introduced grapevines to German soil in the 1st century BC. Over the centuries, winemaking developed and adapted to different cultural influences, from Medieval monasteries to modern viticulture techniques. This long history and evolution of winemaking has resulted in Germany being known today for its wide variety of styles; from juicy whites like Riesling and Muller-Thurgau to full-bodied reds such as Dornfelder and Spatburgunder.
In addition, many producers are now experimenting with blends; combining various grape varietals for intense flavor profiles that can’t be found anywhere else. These include Schmaltzkreuz, a mix of Riesling and Silvaner; or Schiller, a combination of Müller-Thurgau and Leonberger.
Germany offers an incredible array of unique offerings; perfect for any occasion! From white wines that burst with citrusy aromas to silky reds with layers of complexity – it’s no wonder why German vintages are so popular today.
