A Little ABOUT German Wine
German wines have been enjoyed for centuries; in fact, some of the oldest existing wine laws originated in Germany in 1435. These laws strictly regulated winemaking practices within the nation to ensure quality and consistency, forming a foundation from which contemporary German wine is now produced. German wines range from sparkling Sekt, to light Rieslings or refreshing Kabinetts – all with unique characteristics which make this ancient beverage so sought after. Though occasionally overshadowed by its French and Italian counterparts, the country’s diverse soils, climates and expertise form an exquisite playground for oenophiles to explore.
