Sekt is a name for sparkling wines that are usually made in Germany.
Within Germany it is synonym with Qualitätsschaumwein, which means
sparkling wine of higher quality.

In the past German wine law distinguished 3 wine qualifications,
comparable to those for non-sparkling wines:

* Sparkling wine
* Qualitätsschaumwein (quality sparkling wine) or Sekt
* Prädikatssekt (today forbidden)

On 20 February 1975 the European Court of Justice decided that the name
/Sekt/ may also used for sparkling wines produced in countries other
than Germany. Since 1967 the term /Prädikatssekt/ is not allowed anymore.

Regulations for German Sekt

German Sekt has to have a minimum of 10 % alcohol. The pressure within
the bottle has to be 3.5 bar. Where carbonation was artificially added
to the wine, this has to be declared on the label. German Sekt is aged
for a minimum of 9 months. Quality sparkling wines may not contain more
than 185 mg sulphuric acid per 100 ml. The label of
German Sekt has to state an official identification number. It may show
the grape variety , year of harvest and area of origin, if
the proportion of these grapes is at least 75 %. It may also show the
term Flaschengärung (bottle fermentation), if the Sekt was stored on the
yeast for at least 6 months.

Deutscher Qualitätsschaumwein bestimmter Anbaugebiete (b.A.), or German
quality sparkling wine from specific areas, has to be produced from
100 % wines from one of the 13 German wine growing areas.

Sekt made in Germany is mostly produced by the Charmat method. Riesling
wines are often used and well suited for the production of Sekt. The
last dosage defines the taste of the Sekt. It is regulated by German law
and stipulates for example the amount of sugar that may be added for
Sekts that are extra brut (extra dry), brut (dry), and mild (sweet). For
Vintage Sekt 85 % of the wines used in production have to be from the
stated year.
Sekt from other Countries

Other sparkling wines called Sekt include Krimsekt from Crimea, Austrian
Sekt and Bohemia Sekt.
