Traditional German Gluhwein

People enjoying hot German Gluhwein at Winter Wonderland

Traditional German Gluhwein is very similar to British Mulled Wine, spiced red wine, served hot, brewed after centuries-old recipes. Wine was first recorded as spiced and heated up in the First Century in Rome. From there the mulled wine developed over Europe. The Romans traded and spread this popular drink all over the countries. Europeans prepare it usually from red wine, for instance, a merlot. One heats the wine carefully up and spices it with cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, aniseed and citrus. There exists also a variation of white Gluhwein in the French Alsace area and in parts of Switzerland.


The German word for Gluhwein is Glühwein, glühen translates to glow, simply because it makes your cheeks glowing. Without a doubt, traditional Gluhwein roots deeply rooted in German culture. Gluhwein is well known all over Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland. You will get a perfect and easy to make winter delight – your favourite drink in winter. It can be prepared as a non-alcoholic version with apple, grape or red berry juices as well.
