If you’re from Wisconsin, chances are your forebears spoke the German language, ate German food and drank German wine.


Over 40% of Wisconsinites are of German descent  — and an even higher percentage of us hail from either Germany or one of the culturally Germanic lands of Europe — places which include Austria, northern Switzerland, northeastern France and northeastern Italy.


Wines from these places occupy a vast swath of Old World territory and yield a vast variety of vitis vinifera grapes and styles of wines. All of these wines have a distinctly German character and personality. As native Wisconsinites, we’d say they’ve all got gemütlichkeit.


You may know Riesling from the German regions of the Mosel, Nahe, Rheingau and Pfalz — but have you explored Riesling and Gewürztraminer from the French region of Alsace? You may know Grüner Veltliner from the Austrian regions of Wachau, Kamptal and Kremstal — but do you know Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and Saint Laurent from Austria’s Burgenland? Or Gemischter Satz from its wine region of Vienna? And have you tasted Kerner, Müller-Thurgau and Gelber Muskateller from the Alto Adige in Italy? Or Chasselas and Sylvaner from Switzerland?


We’d like to introduce you to all of these friendly and generous German-speaking wines. As soon as you meet them, we know you’ll recognize them — and love them! — like favorite relatives. You’ll say they’ve all got gemütlichkeit.
