Restaurant Maier, Lake Constance

Beverages

Wines from Lake Contance and the surroundings

Dear guests,

We also stand behind our philosophy when it comes to drinks and use superb products from the lake and the surroundings. Our small selection of sparkling and semi-sparkling wines is complemented by apple and pear specialties from Manufaktur Jörg Geiger. Our beers, juices, and spirits come mainly from the Lake Constance region.

We take a new and interesting approach when it comes to wines: along with "SeeWein" (lake wines) from Lake Constance and the surroundings, we offer "BergWein" (mountain wines) from the mountains and hillsides of the entire Alpine region and southern Germany. These wines are spontaneously fermented thus producing an absolutely individual and authentic flavor. We also offer wines from 2 other vineyards with a special connection to Friedrichshafen.

Wine selection

We offer one of the most exciting and best wine lists on Lake Constance. Along with our lake wines, we also offer spontaneously fermented mountain wines and wines from 2 vineyards with a special connection to Friedrichshafen.


Lake wines

Lake Constance is not considered a "big" wine-growing region and therefore does not have any particular reputation among wine connoisseurs. Perhaps one of the reasons is that the "SeeWein" (lake wine) is somewhat of a diva: it does not come to you but gladly welcomes visitors; the vintners around the lake sell most of their wine at their own vineyards, or they sell them to be offered on wine lists at restaurants within 40 km. Also, the microclimate around the lake presents a challenge to vintners and grape growing. A high-altitude location and humidity make it difficult to produce wines with flavor and identity as well as typicality and terroir. We have devoted our wine selection to those dedicated vintners around the lake from three countries or nine "wine-growing states" whose wines rise above the average, i.e. wines that you can truly savor. This "savoring" of wines is somewhat of a fun regional tradition. Our main concern is those wines that present the lake and its exceptional diversity in an especially authentic style. In the first half of our wine list, you will find a well-though-out list of lake wines from prominent vintners as well as dedicated part-time wine growers, whose wines you won't find anywhere else. We will expose you to the fascinating diversity of wines from all shores of the lake. Because our lake is surrounded by mountains and hills in the back country, the second half of our wine list is dedicated to boldly individual wines from the steep slopes, hillsides, or terraces of the surrounding Alpine region and southern Germany.

Mountain wine

Vines that thrive on slopes and hillsides produce wines that taste "different". Not just the cultivation of grapevines but also the location is vital in characterizing style and quality. Here, vines must form deeper roots than on fertile plains. Therefore, these wines have a more intense taste and - because they are traditionally cultivated - a fascinating background character. The modern methods of wine production dominate the style and taste of wines making them commonplace and mundane. Therefore, we are interested in the traditional, "slow" maturation process in the cellar and the elaborate manual labor in the vineyards. Because machines are not used in the vineyards and the vines are not treated with conventional agricultural chemicals, the wines are not "cheap". In the cellar, our vintners do not use enzymes, synthetic yeast, or the usual procedures for fining and stabilization. As in earlier times, they undergo "spontaneous" fermentation by means of naturally existing wild yeast, and the finished wine is then left to ferment for quite some time. This results in a distinctively expressive and original wine. Thus, our wine list offers a deliberately limited selection. Many of our wines come from organically certified cultivation. They all have a much more complex taste than what their "fruity" smell might suggest; they are made from regionally rooted grape varieties, and we hope that they give you as much joy and pleasure with their self-assertive regionality as we had when selecting them. We chose them carefully to complement our cuisine, and we may change them as needed according to season and current food specials. We hope you enjoy your wine experience!
