ProWein: Germany's best rosés 2022 awarded


On May 15th The German Wine Institute (DWI) honored the best rosés at the international trade fair ProWein in Düsseldorf, Germany. An expert jury that included Masters of Wine had chosen the finalists of this competition.

Three winners in the respective categories "rosé wine" and "rosé sparkling wine" were selected from over 160 samples submitted from all 13 German wine-growing regions.

Rosé Sparkling Wine Winners

The jury chose the 2014 Rosé Prestige brut from the Reichsrat von Buhl winery in Deidesheim, Palatinate, as the best sparkling wine. The 2018 Pinot Rosé brut from the Franz Keller winery in Oberbergen in Baden came in second. Third place went to Franken to the Juliusspital winery in Würzburg for its 2019 Rosé brut.

The 2021 Cabernet Franc Rosé dry from the Bergdolt Reif & Nett winery in Duttweiler in the Palatinate won the rosé wines. He was followed by the 2021 Pinot Noir Rosé dry from Weingut & Privatkellerei Bimmerle from Renchen in Baden. The third-placed rosé wine, a 2021 Pinot Noir rosé dry, comes from the Jacob Schneider winery in Niederhausen an der Nahe.

Enormous Boost in Quality

The jurors emphasized that German rosé wines and sparkling wines have experienced an enormous boost in quality in recent years and that they need not shy away from international competition.

After the laudations by the jury members Caro Mauer MW and Thomas Curtius MW as well as the German Wine Queen Sina Erdrich and DWI Managing Director Monika Reule, the competition winners were honored with a certificate and a trophy.

In this context, the DWI boss thanked the award winners for their consistent pursuit of quality and congratulated them on their success. "The award-winning wines and sparkling wines make a significant contribution to further enhancing the image of German rosés at home and abroad," explained Reule.

The jury selected ten rosé wines and sparkling wines each, which are available for open tasting at the DWI-ProWein stand in Hall 1 (E120).
