German wines might have the most detailed classification system known to man, and let's not get started on the pronunciation. These challenges might seem like a big hurdle to overcome, but your efforts will be well rewarded. 

And while this might be an under-appreciated wine region, in the American market, not on the shelves at DECANTsf! Like all other German wine geeks the world over, we know the age-ability, food friendliness, and damn deliciousness of these stellar wines. Filter by Grape Variety or Appellation to find iconic Riesling from the Rheingau, to the quintesentially German Scheurebe, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir).

Terms to Know:

  • Prädikatswein: This is the highest classification for German wines and indicates the level of ripeness of the grapes at harvest. Prädikatswein wines are classified into six categories, from driest to sweetest: Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein, and Trockenbeerenauslese.
  • Trocken: This term means "dry" in German and is commonly found on labels to indicate that the wine is dry in style. This is especially important for German Rieslings, as many people mistakenly assume that all Rieslings are sweet.
  • Grosses Gewächs (GG): This term, often abbreviated as GG, is used for top-quality dry wines produced from specific vineyard sites. It's a designation used primarily in the regions of the Mosel, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, and Pfalz.
  • Weingut: This term means "winery" or "estate" in German and is often found on labels to indicate the producer of the wine.
