Try a different German wine: delicious wines from unusual grapes

Yes, riesling is delicious but there are many other exciting wines in Germany too. If you venture a little bit off the beaten tracks of the well-known grapes you can find many other excellent wines at great prices. Silvaner, weissburgunder (pinot blanc), grauburgunder (pinot gris) and spätburgunder (pinot noir) are just a few examples.

We have made a selection and give you our recommendations of some of the best wines from Germany, in a recent tasting, made from these “unusual” grape varieties. Carl-Erik Kanne, one of our reporters in Stockholm, gives you top pick of wines from a tasting arranged by the German Wine Institute on BKWine Magazine: The other Germany: great wines from unusual German grapes.
