Qualitätswein mit Prädikat (QmP)

Translated as “quality wine with specific attributes,” this is the top level of German wines. In the traditional German system, QmP wines prominently display a ripeness level on the wine label (from kabinett up to trockenbeerenauslese) and a sweetness level, from dry (trocken) to extremely sweet. Unlike QbA wines, QmP wines may not be chaptalized. QmP wines must be produced from allowed grape varieties in one of the 39 subregions (bereich) of one of the 13 wine-growing regions, although it is the region rather than the subregion which is mandatory information on the label.
