Qualitat mit Pradikat (QmP): German quality classification meaning "quality with distinction" and includes Germany’s best wines. QmP is divided into six classes of ascending ripeness at harvest: kabinett, spätlese, auslese, beerenauslese, eiswein and trockenbeerenauslese. Sugar is never added to these wines.
Qualitätswein Bestimmter Anbaugebiete (QbA): German quality classification meaning "quality wine from designated cultivation areas." Producers may add sugar to these wines when grapes don’t meet the minimum levels of natural ripeness at harvest time. Usually a producer's basic level wine, inexpensive and meant for everyday drinking, though there are some exceptions.
