The seal for classified producers

The wein.plus classification seal is an instantly recognisable sign of the high standard of quality produced by a winemaker. This classification provides your customers with security and orientation, creating confidence in making a purchase.

The producer classification is a result of the representative wine ratings achieved by a wine estate in the long term at wein.plus tastings. The classification categories range from to (world-class producers). This rating is constantly reviewed by our tasting team in the light of wines tasted currently. Where a producer, whose wine you have in your range, achieves a high level of quality over a number of vintages in the wein.plus wine reviews, you can feel confident in using our easily recognisable seal in your marketing efforts.

The seal can be downloaded, it appears next to each wine of the producer on wein.plus. There you can call up a ZIP file at the top right of the page, reflecting all the seals relevant for this wine and producer. Business Premium Members also receive the seal as a high-quality badge by mail.

The seal for favorite wines

Einer unserer Lieblingsweine
An accolade that is more concerned with emotions than with objective criteria and points rankings is that for "favorite wines".This is not about objectivity or points scores, but rather about our very personal recommendations. Favorite wines are the wines that, in the opinion of the tasting team, have tasted the best, wines they themselves would buy and drink. In this sense, the associated seal is a very special accolade and award. You may also use this seal for advertising the appropriate wines in your range.

Wine seals and the wine certificates

The same applies with respect to our wine seal that we use to point out the quality of the wines in our current tastings. Even though we are known for being more strict and restrictive than many other wine guides: great wines deserve to be praised with a seal!
  • Show in an instantly recognizable form that this producer is recognized for the high quality of his wines!
  • you can immediately let new customers feel that they can feel secure in buying highly regarded wines!
  • Increase sales, as the seal used in conjunction with a shop also attracts more attention!
You can find the seal for downloading purposes together with the appropriate wine in the wine reviews. In the top right corner of the screen you can call up a ZIP file with all seals relevant to the wine and the producer.

Important notice related to the laws on competition and use of names

When using the seals in conjunction with individual wines, please do so only in accordance with the laws applying to competition and the use of protected names applicable in your country. There may be restrictions in terms of designating wines, for example, in terms of § 30 of the German wine regulations German wines may not be marked with the seal in the German wine trade. however, there are no restrictions in Germany on marking wines of non-German origin with the seal. We are not aware of any restrictions for the trade in other European countries, however, we cannot exclude the possibility these may exist. These possible restrictions refer only to the direct labelling or marking of wines, not to the general descriptions of producers on websites or in other forms of information.

Reference: Using the seal of quality increases the likelihood of purchase

"Overall the study has shown that the likelihood of a wine identified by a seal of quality is on average 4.2 per cent higher than it is for products without such an identification. furthermore, consumers are prepared to spend more: on average they will accept a price that is 2.3 per cent higher than that of products without a seal of quality."
