The seal for classified producers

The classification seal from wein.plus provides immediately recognisable proof of the high standard of a wine producer's work. This classification gives your customers orientation and security and creates trust for their purchases.

The producer classification is based on the representative wine ratings that a winery has achieved over the long term in the wein.plus tastings. It ranges from to (world-class producers). This rating is constantly reviewed by our tasting team based on the wines currently being tasted. If a producer whose wines you have in your range has demonstrated a high level of quality over several vintages at wein.plus, you can use our eye-catching seal for your marketing.

You can download the seal for any of the producer's wines at wein.plus. There you can download a ZIP file with all the seals for the wine and producer at the top right. Business Premium members also receive the seal as a high-quality badge by post.

The seal for favourite wines

The "Favourite Wines"award is less focused on objectivity and more on emotions.

This is not about objectivity and points, but about our very personal recommendations. Favourite wines are those that taste best to the tasting team and that they would buy and drink themselves. The associated seal is therefore a very special honour. These seals can also be used to advertise the corresponding wines.

Wine seals and wine certificates

The same applies to our wine seal, which we use to recognise the quality of the wines from our current tastings. Because even if we are considered to be stricter and more restrictive than many other wine guides: Great wines deserve a seal!

  • Show immediately recognisable: This company produces recognised high-quality wines!
  • Give new customers immediate reassurance and a high reputation!
  • Increase sales, because the label also attracts more attention in the wine shop!

You can download the seal from the corresponding wine in the wine guide. There you can download a ZIP file with all the seals for the wine and producer at the top right.

Important note on labelling and competition law

When labelling wines, please only use the seals in accordance with country-specific labelling and competition law. There may be restrictions on the labelling of wines; for example, according to § 30 of the Wine Ordinance, German wines may not be labelled with the seal in the German trade. There are no restrictions for non-German wines in the German trade. We are not aware of any restrictions for trade in other European countries, but we cannot rule them out. These possible restrictions only affect the direct labelling of wines, but not the general description of producers on Webpages or in other information.
