As the cold nights draw in, nothing beats a hot glass of spiced wine by the fire. German Glühwein is a delicious blend of red wine and spices, very similar to mulled wine. Red wine is infused with a unique blend of spices and fruit like cinnamon, cloves, oranges, lemons and then a dash of sugar is added - it's Christmas in a glass! Schmitt Söhne is a family owned winer. Their Glühwein is ready to drink, requiring only gentle heating before serving to achieve a cheerful warm glow and bonhomie. It is really popular drink in winter in Bavaria around the festive Christmas period, the combination of wine and spices ensures a warm and cheerful experience when shopping or out walking and is traditionally served with iced ginger biscuits.
Over 200 years ago the Schmitt ancestors settled in the small village of Longuich, located along the Mosel River, and began managing vineyards and producing wine.
