Sekt is the German word for “sparkling wine” or “champagne”. While it is very similar in appearance and method of production, the grapes used to make sekt are totally different. In contrast to Champagne, only one red grape is used. This explains the softer finish of sekt.

Base wines for Sekt are judged on acidity, not sugar levels as is normally the case. Hence, they are often harvested before the normal harvest, since the sugar content rises much in the last couple of weeks.
