Name used in Germany and Austria for a wine whose grapes were harvested on 11 November, Martini (Martin's Day). This day is named after Saint Martin of Tours (316-397). Naturally, it is mostly a Beerenauslese or a Trockenbeerenauslese. In Austria, Martiniwein or Martinilese is a designation defined by wine law. It may be used here if the harvest date is noted on the label. Similar wines are Christwein, Dreikönigswein, Leopoldiwein, Nikolowein, Stefaniwein and Weihnachtswein. See also under special wines.
