Totally dry and dynamically changed - the revolution that is German wine today.
Most Americans associate German wine with sweet wine. And as a corollary, many Americans also associate German wine as low quality - the iconic Blue Nun label representing both.
Both of these preconceptions no longer apply to Germany today. I’ll say it again - most German wine is no longer sweet, and in fact, a good portion of German wine is no longer white! What has happened is a revolution in the laws, quality and taste that is modern German winemaking.
Most of Germany’s white wines are now dry. And not only that, but these dry whites have started using a vineyard hierarchy in the style of Burgundy - regional wines, village wines, Premier Cru and Grand Cru wines. Germany has been making wine for almost 4,000 years, and this “new” system harkens back to vineyard sites that are often as old.
Second, Germany now has a strong culture for producing high-quality red wines. Red wines have always been made in Germany, but now, with climate change, Germany’s red wines rival anything being produced in Alsace or Burgundy.
Germany’s “new” wines will absolutely astound you. So please, come join us in exploring the revolution that is German wine today - it will open your mind as well as fascinate your palate.
