Cult wine

Popular but imprecise designation for a wine of outstanding quality. It has no meaning in terms of wine law and there are also no generally valid criteria regarding origin, wine type or vinification. A common feature is that such wines were produced especially in the beginning contrary to existing regulations (grape varieties, winemaking methods, etc.) and were therefore declassified (e.g. country wine). They are often produced in only small quantities using elaborate methods and are very expensive. A term with similar meaning is garage wine (boutique wine). Examples without any claim to completeness are:
