BERLIN. 420 German  diplomats and their guests all over the world will be able to toast themselves with new wines in the future.  After an open invitation to tender, a total of 420 wines were put forward for pre-selection, from which the DWI selected the best 59 wines in a blind tasting, which were made available for the final tasting in Berlin. This year's range of wines includes four sparkling wines, 15 white wines, four red wines and two rosés, as well as two non-alcoholic varieties for the first time. They come from ten different German wine-growing regions and reflect the diversity of flavours in Germany very well.</p

<p>The DWI has been supporting the Federal Foreign Office in the selection of wines for many years. It also advises employees in the foreign missions worldwide on specific wine issues and offers an annual wine seminar as part of the attaché training programme.


<p>Among the selected wines is the 2021 Chardonnay from Winzerzhof Stahl in Franconia, whose restaurant recently received a Michelin star for the first time.

Winemaker and head chef Christian Stahl is delighted with this news. "My team and I are very proud that we are able to represent the Franconian wine region with our sparkling wine worldwide," says the businessman.
