Many people who are just getting into wine find that a bit of sweetness makes wine both more pleasurable, as well as easier to drink. Finding sweet wines, and being able to determine the sweetness level from the label can be a challenge. One of the best places to start can be with German wines, whose detailed labels offer you all the information you need. On the other hand all that information can also be very intimidating. It’s time to make it a bit easier.

German wine labels include the producer, the vintage, the region the wine is from, the village and if it’s from a specific vineyard that gets mentioned as well. Also included is the level of ripeness of the grapes at harvest. This does not necessarily indicate the sweetness of the finished wines but can certainly help you narrow down your search.
