White

This crisp, refreshing Riesling represents both sides of Riesling – dry and fruity – while capturing the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards. 12% ABV, 100% Mosel

This riesling wine is fermented in 3,000-liter, neutral oak casks for 12 months. The result is riesling with rich taste profiles similar to a french Sancerre or Pouilly-Fuissé. A well-balanced dry Riesling from estate vineyards shows the distinctively forceful minerality of red slate soils.

Fragrant white peach, vibrant citrus, and a delightfully creamy texture. Its assertive, refreshing flavors are partnered with subtle oak. Medium-bodies and perfect with our beer batter fish sandwich!

The fruit for the Pinot Blanc is about 40% estate-harvested, primarily from sites not as dominated by limestone as the estate’s best vineyards. The remainder of the fruit is sourced from other local growers who are members of Naturland, a German certification organization for Organic agriculture. The palate is fresh and creamy, laced with a fine minerality that lingers on the back palate with mouthwatering acidity.

100% Pinot Grigio grapes soft pressed that follow a 7-month maturation in steel tanks. This Ramato-style wine is straw-yellow in color, floral in aroma, and is a full-bodied flavor that reveals hints of pear and apple. This neutral wine pairs well with chicken schnitzel, apple-bacon sauerkraut, and naked mashed potato.

Produced in the slightly off-dry “feinherb” style, making it extremely versatile with a broad range of foods, it’s a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine made with grapes from contracted growers throughout the Mosel River valley. Green apples make this a classic Mosel Riesling. Half off bottles of wine on Wednesday or take it to-go at retail pricing.

This dry white wine is light yellow with green hues and lemony aromas with hints of spice and pepper, typical of the Gruner grape. Count Karolyi develops attractive fruit flavors on the palate and a pleasant, refreshing finish.

Between passion and emotion, the origin of winemaking dates back to 1680 within the Sparr family. A marvelous bouquet of flowers and cloves with a touch of spice that subtly envelopes the palate. This well-balanced wine finds dry but supple, exotic lychee and rose petal notes. Makes a glorious match with sausage and spicy sauerkraut.

Intense Aroma, very fruity, mango, and pineapple. Impressive entrance to the palate presents soft, sweet, and harmonic. Balanced acidity, ample. Long finish.

Auslese translates to “selected harvest,” which are grapes that are only hand-picked and their juices pressed from grapes the size of raisins. Snappy flavors like green apple, passionfruit, and orange peel ring true. The palate is impeccable – pure, fresh, and delicate with great depth. Open already, it has great flavor but also a real sense of precision. An irresistible appeal is a perfect pairing for apple strudel and vanilla ice cream.

Bubbles & Rosé

Maison Pierre Sparr follows a 300-year-old tradition of winemaking. A well-balanced sparkling starts with strawberry and raspberry aromas and finishes smooth and dry. 100% Pinot Noir

100% Pinot Noir grapes make up this dry rosé. The 2021 vintage wines exude a wonderful balance of ripe fruit aromas, acidity, and elegant minerality. They already offer great enjoyment to drink now, but will also benefit greatly from cellaring.

 A 100% Chardonnay grape, fresh and elegant strawberry & raspberry start with notes of a citrus finish.

The palate is powerful and voluminous, with a distinct and clear note. It unfolds with initial aromas of luscious red fruit, strawberry, and Morello cherry, leading to dense notes of noble tannins, velvety & silky.

Authentic Brut epitomizes the Canard-Duchene style, where freshness and intensity bring together nobility and nature. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the wine is characterized by fresh fruit aromas jostling with brioche notes. The fruit aromas carry through to the palate and intermingle with pastry notes. Authentic Brut, perfect for every occasion.

Volcker Raumland makes sekt (sparkling wine) for dozens of top German estates. He is a master craftsman who creates a modest 100,000 bottles of methode champenoise sparkling wines each year. All wines are hand-harvested. These are simply the best, most conscientiously made sekts in Germany.

Dr. L Sparkling Riesling is 100% pure Riesling — the crisp, fruity grape that has made German wine famous for centuries. We use the Charmat method, where the second fermentation is done in a pressurized tank to keep the bubbles in the wine. This produces bright, clean, sparkling wines in a more affordable way, which makes it possible to offer this charming bubbler at a very nice everyday price.

Red

Berry fruit forward with an acidic and dry finish. A clean wine that offers cherry and with a hint of tobacco and earthy tones that linger. Pair this wine with our Chicken Schnitzel topped with our apple-cranberry chutney.

A tasty, lighter-bodied Pinot perfect for warmer weather, the Villa Wolf Pinot Noir from Germany. 100% Pinot Noir from Pfalz in southwest Germany directly north of Alsace.

The older vintage on this wine separates it from the other pinots on our shelf because of its bigger body. The result is a luscious German Red Wine that has a soft texture and is very approachable. The fine and persistent tannins will allow this wine to age for another decade! 

50-year-old Cab Franc vines; grapes are hand-harvested. This is a light and fun Cab Franc with fresh berry and herb notes, slightly effervescent with tingly acidity. 

Very nice Bordeaux. The name generation hints at the 4 generations of winemakers. It’s a 45% Merlot & 55% Cabernet Franc blend giving vivid fruit aromas and subtle herbal hints. This fruity wine has good acidity and a light structure. Easy and fresh.

A wine list is incomplete without one Italian Barolo made of 100% Nebbiolo grape. This harmonious, well-structured with elegant tannins and remarkable complexity and balance make it an intense red; a large and composite bouquet of sweet spices, dried flowers, leather, and undergrowth make it great to pair with our cream puffs or seasonal roladen. 

This 100% Grape Tempranillo is an intense ruby red from Rioja, Spain. Aromas of red fruit, including strawberry in good intensity in conjunction with spice, vanilla and oak notes. On the palate,e it is fresh, soft, and balanced, with the fruit well integrated with the notes of oak, vanilla, and light toast.

Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon. Matthew Fritz was founded on a few simple principles. Seek out and source only from top North Coast vineyards. Let the fruit stand on its own through a pure, clean winemaking process.

100% Syrah Rock-n_roll is a barbeque in a bottle. Ripe dark berry fruits like blackberry and juicy plum balance with a spiced clove and slightly smoky finish. Pair this wine with our Der Brau burger!

50% Grenache, 50% Syrah and aged in stone reveal a soft and supple red wine that is easy-going and gives a nice array of red fruits yet earthy notes. This is a medium to light-bodied profile. 

Wonderfully consistent. Fully fruit-forward with a hint of sweetness makes it an easy choice for red wine drinkers. Try this with our St. Moritz Schnitzel- It is an Austrian veal parm!
