About
Stefan's Wine and Christmas Paradise Stefan opened his shop, in St. Goar in the middle of the World heritage `Mittelrhein`, over 20 years ago. He is offering delecius Wines and Brandys made from his family. The first and still the most famous Brandy Stefan's family is producing is the peach Brandy. Made out of red peaches which are growing in the vineyards. Whenever you are entering the shop you will be offered a taste of it.: Be careful this Brandy make costumers return from all over the world. Today the variety of Stefan's Brandys got much bigger. The Menu offers something for every taste: from the famous peach Brandy to Blackberry Brandy, from different chocolate Brandys to winter apple brandy even a whisky or a cognac. And not to forget the Queen of the German wines 'Eiswein'. You will find this seldom wine as well in Stefan's shop. Eiswein must be produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. The sugar and other dissolved solids do not freeze, but the water does, allowing a more concentrated grape. With Eiswein, the freezing happens before the fermentation, not afterwards. Only healthy grapes keep in good shape until the opportunity arises for an Eiswein harvest, which in extreme cases can occur after the New Year, on a northern hemisphere calendar. This gives Eiswein its characteristic refreshing sweetness balanced by high acidity. Eiswein production is risky (the frost may not come at all before the grapes rot or are otherwise lost) and requires the availability of a large enough labor force to pick the whole crop within a few hours, at a moment's notice, on the first morning that is cold enough. This results in relatively small amounts of Eiswein being made world-wide, making Eiswein generally quite expensive. You have some time in St. Goar come in and enjoy a free wine and Brandy tasting. Or enjoy your time browsing through the Christmas shop. You are visiting St. Goar with a group, no problem give a call and we set up a tasting with some snacks for you. Or what do you think of a free tasting at your home? And don't worry when your bottles get empty you can always order online and we ship it directly to your home. And of course we will reimburse your shipping as well when you order online.

Excellent wine shop in St. Goar
Sep 2021
We have visited Stefan’s shop twice now. The first was in 2018 with a river tour group. The second time was Sept. 6, 2021 on our own. Stefan has the best wine and brandy in the Rhineland if not all of Germany and we will return on every visit to Germany in the future. We love visiting with him and tasting all of the superior wine and brandy he offers. A unexpected gem on the Rhine. So if you are touring the river and the local castles be sure to stop there and meet our friend Stefan and his wine paradise.

Thank goodness he was open!

We began visiting Stefan's in 2004 and have made a special effort to return there during each trip to Germany - 10 trips since 2004 since our son was stationed there for 9 years.

We recently returned (July 11, 2021) from a trip to Italy and Germany. Our original plans included only Italy since it was one of the few countries open to US travelers when we planned to depart. We spent months planning our trip, but Germany opened only THREE days before our trip was to start. Previous plans were tossed and new plans made just so we could visit Stefan's! We simply cannot go to Germany without a visit to see him and taste his wonderful brandies and wines.

This year has proved challenging so when we arrived at his store only to find it closed, we were devastated! However, he pulled up soon after we arrived and greeted us like old friends. He opened the store for us and we had a delightful time visiting and tasting!

We mentioned that we planned to go up the hill to explore Rheinfels Castle, but he informed us that the bus wasn't running due to Co-vid 19. Being the very kind man that he is, he offered to put all of us (5) in his van and run us up the mountain to the castle...he even called ahead to make sure a restaurant was open so we could grab a bite to eat while the grandchildren explored the castle.

You simply cannot wrong with a visit to Stefan's! We changed our entire travel plans of 18 days in Italy and Germany just to ensure a visit with him and his store!

Loved our visit. All of the wine Stefan recommended for sampling was amazing! He was very helpful with shipping to the states. Also a great selection of clocks and gifts. This is a must visit if you’re in the area.

What a great impression! Stefan has a great business and is very welcoming to any and all who wish to come inside his store. He is knowledgeable about his product and has the best ice wine and brandy I’ve ever tasted! This is a must stop! You won’t regret it.

One of the best places to visit in Germany!
Nov 2020 • Friends
I was stationed in Germany 15 years ago, and a friend of mine brought me to Stefan's Wine Paradise. Life has taken me to many places, but I have never forgotten what a wonderful experience Stefan provides for his customers, and it is one of my most favorite memories from Germany. Every brandy I've tasted was so good! 2020 has brought a lot of chaos, but I got to place my first international order with him today, and I can't wait to taste them all again! If you are anywhere near St Goar, make the effort to stop by his shop! You won't regret it.

I was told by a friend to check this place out and I’m so glad I did!

Everyone was friendly, they let you try whatever brandy or Eis wein you’d like.

What’s more is they were extremely welcoming to our children who are 3 and 5.

I had come about 20 minutes ahead of the kids and my husband and was prepared to leave when my kids got there, but Stefan welcomed everyone and had kids wein for them and allowed them to help themselves to the snacks on hand.

This place is a must see!

Excellent products, excellent service!
Aug 2020
The entire experience was excellent. Stefan was a very kind and knowledgeable salesman and the products are of very high quality. He was quick to offer his recommendations based on our tastes and was fun to talk to. Overall, visiting Stefan's Weinparadies is something I would highly recommend if you are a fan of liquors and brandies.

The chocolate, cherry and peach brandy are a must to buy. Stefan has an array of Brandys and wines. The ice wine is a must try. I sampled the brandy’s and wines with a trip and I would do this again.

THE BEST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD!!!!
Aug 2019
The owner was such a delight and so friendly . I was able to go upstairs to go and look through all the chrismas ornaments and other Christmas stuff. I was able to purchase handmade German Christmas ornaments as well a couple of cuckoo clocks personalize and great wines . Which he shipped to my home and he took care of that personally and he even emailed me . I highly recommend Stefan's wine paradise to everyone "he's the best in all Europe".
