German Wines Offer New Choices For Holidays

Looking for creative choices for your holiday wine? Here are two winning bottles from Germany.

Picking up Cabernet and Chardonnay for your holiday entertaining? It’s time to color outside the lines and dazzle your guests with some lesser-known wines from Germany.

Try setting your table with German wines. For red consider this tasty bottle of Weingut Beurer Trollinger Trocken. Trollinger wines are meant to be enjoyed while they are young and fresh. This bottle is jubilantly fruity yet dry. The wine is certified biodynamic, following the winery’s goals of purity, minerality, liveliness, tension, complexity, and expression. Perfect for poultry and it can be lightly chilled too.

Pinot Blanc is also known as Weissburgunder. This bottle from Weingut Richard Böcking has delicate fruitiness and fresh acidity, Pinot Blanc is an ideal food wine. It opens with minerality and then rounded apricot and pear notes. The grapes for this wine come from the steep hillsides of the Mosel River, where the Böcking family has been making wine since 1624.

The prices for these wines are deliciously affordable. The Pinot Blanc goes for about $18 while the Trollinger retails for about $25.

Full disclosure: These wines were received as marketing samples.
