German Wines in Berlin

Posted by

Berlin is one of the great, historic, tragic, hopeful, and inspiring cities in the world. I recently visited the city for work, but had a bit of time to look around and take in a couple meals. There is probably no more interesting city in Europe and I find myself always contemplating our past and future in Berlin. And, spending as many opportunities as possible trying all the wonderful German (and a couple Austrian) wines we never see in North America. The diversity of German wine is tremendous, with Rieslings that can pair with everything from salad to beef; silky and oily silvaners of great depth, and a surprising range of ever-improving Pinot Noir with a personality unlike anywhere else (fruity, but also very savory). Here are a few snap-shots, and in a testament to the consistent high quality of German wines, all of the wines below were in my view worthy of an “Excellent” rating.
