German Wine

If all you think German wine has to offer is medium-sweet wines like Liebfraumilch, you're missing out on some of the wine world's most stunning bottles.

On the edge of where vines can successfully grow, Germany's best wine regions, like the Mosel and Rhine valleys, have the majestic rivers to thank for allowing some of the world's most dramatic vineyards to thrive. Here you'll find white grape varieties like Riesling and Pinot Gris create wines that give maximum pleasure at remarkably reasonable prices.

Our selection is aimed at showing you a taste of just what you've been missing from German winemaking, each with its own distinct character. Almost 50 years ago, Gerald, our buyer, worked a vintage in the Bernkasteler vineyards, with their vines clinging precariously to the slate-dominated slopes above the Mosel. He's picked these wines based on first-hand experience, and we're confident you'll be amazed by the impressive quality of these German wines.
