Wines of Germany at New Orleans Wine & Food Experience 2022

Wines of Germany invites the Big Easy to toast every moment – big or small – with a glass of German wine!

Whether you’re exploring the French Quarter, enjoying a night of jazz and jambalaya, or shopping on Magazine Street, there’s a German wine for everything worth celebrating.

While famous for white wine, Germany cultivates a wide range of grapes, from whites like Riesling to reds like Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder), and styles from dry to sweet and still to sparkling. No matter the variety or style, the hallmark of German wines is the electric acidity that makes them refreshing, mouth-watering, and super food-friendly.

This is a result of Germany’s status as a “cool climate” wine growing area, with its 13 distinct wine regions ranking among the most northerly in the world. Less sunshine and warmth compared to more southerly regions enables a longer ripening period, during which grapes benefit from nutrients in the soil. Along with other factors of terroir, this fosters the development of fruity, complex, high-acid wines with unparalleled aging ability.

White Wine

If there was a drink designed for Creole cuisine, there’s no doubt it’d be German Riesling! Depending on the style of the versatile grape, Riesling can cut through fried foods, stand up to serious Cajun spice, or partner perfectly with sweet snacks. Ready to reach beyond Riesling? Seek out Silvaner, Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), or Scheurebe, and don’t forget German sparkling wine, called Sekt!

Red Wine

Germany doesn’t disappoint when it comes to red wines, either. When summer starts boiling in the Bayou, big bold reds are just too much. Again thanks to the cooler climate, Germany’s red wines are typically lighter with lower tannins, and can even be chilled! Look for Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), Trollinger, Lemberger, and Rosé wines from Germany.

No matter your taste, the New Orleans Wine and Food Experience is the perfect place to start exploring the world of German wine. #ProstEveryMoment
