Sekt

Sekt is the German sparkling wine. The majority of Sekt is made by the Charmat method with the remaining premium Sekt being made according to the méthode traditionnelle.
Cheap sparkling wine made with CO2 injection must not be named Sekt, but rather Schaumwein (German for sparkling wine, literally "foam wine"), semi-sparkling wine is named Perlwein.

Around 90 percent of Sekt is made at least partially from imported wines from France. Sekt labeled as Deutscher Sekt is made exclusively from German grapes from one of the 13 quality wine regions in Germany.
