Almost 20 years ago, Klaus Bellinghausen decided to bring his favorite German wines directly to wine lovers in the U.S. Working with family-owned vineyards in the world’s premier wine-growing areas, he developed standards for all natural King Frosch Wines.
All King Frosch German-produced wines are crafted under Germany’s strict wine making laws, ensuring that there are no artificial colors or additives (apart from the required sulfites, which are much lower than used in other countries). In fact, King Frosch Wines are known by our customers as the “no-headache” wines. We have over 3,000 customers that purchase direct from us online and we are respected for our quality and consistency.
Today King Frosch offers over 50 varietals. If you are looking for all natural wines, you need to learn about King Frosch Wines. Recently published in the California Business Journal, to read the full article on King Frosch All Natural Wines, click here.

Tired of wine headaches? Switch to all natural wines and you may put an end to them. Are you familiar with this story?
It’s Friday night, and you open a bottle of your favorite red wine. What a fantastic way to start the weekend! But after your second glass, you feel nauseous and your face is flushed. It’s that dreaded red wine headache again and the night ends early. But you are not alone—a reported 75% of wine drinkers know the feeling.
For many, red wine headaches are regular occurrences. The alcohol content in the wine is usually not the culprit. You may have searched for preventative solutions, such as drinking a lot of water or taking anti-histamines, but nothing helps. There is hope! But before you cork your bottles and put them back on the rack, here are three reasons why natural wines may be your ticket to a better weekend.
Natural wines contain less of the “stuff” that causes headaches
The cause of your wine headache is most likely histamine intolerance, or when your body has an allergic reaction to this pesky compound. However, not all wines contain high levels of histamines. The most effective way to avoid wine headaches is choosing to drink wines with low histamine levels. King Frosch’s wines have the lowest histamine levels in the world—they come from a country that recommends histamine levels remain at less that 2mg/liter . Other wines can have levels as high as 8mg/liter. The way King Frosch wines are crafted, many in stainless steel tanks, also help maintain lower levels of histamines. In fact, many of our customers refer to the King Frosch as “The No Headache Wine” for that very reason.
2. Natural wines taste fresher than wines with artificial ingredients.
Cheap wines are infamous for being warm on the throat, and feeling as though they’re fighting their way down to your stomach. Why? If you’re paying less than $10 per bottle, you are pretty much guaranteed that your wine was made using artificial taste and/or color enhancers in order to simulate the taste of best-selling, more expensive wines. But even expensive wines can be mass produced with low-quality grapes that need a little artificial help. It’s also not unusual for wine companies to add sugar to increase the alcohol content, which is another trick used to hide flaws. This can be done legally or illegally, according to the wine laws of the country in which the wine is produced. Natural wine companies, on the other hand, respect the wine-making process and work with the grapes from a specific region, from a specific varietal. Rather than adding sugar and artificial colors, King Frosch emphasizes the importance of naturally perfecting our wines during every step of the wine-making process. King Frosch Wines are crafted according to strict German wine laws, which prevent and forbid certain additives for certain quality levels. The result is a wonderful finished product–a perfect balance between fruit and acidity–unlike companies that rush their wine making process and rely heavily on adding artificial ingredients.
3. Natural Wines have nothing to hide.
In the United States and other countries, wine companies don’t have to disclose certain ingredients on their labels, such as the type of food coloring used, how much unnatural sugar was added to the wine, or whether chips of toasted oak are used to flavor the wine. However, when you drink an all natural wine, you don’t have to worry about consuming Mega Purple concentrate or Red No.3, and you certainly don’t have have to consider the authenticity of the flavors that you are tasting. So are you ready to try a delicious, all-natural wine? King Frosch is always looking out for your best wine-related interests. You will find our all natural wines here.
King Frosch just received word that three of our wines were 2016 award winners at the 8th annual Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.
This year’s evaluations were conducted over the final weekend in January by a team of 19 prominent winemakers. And the King Frosch Award Winning Wines are:
BEST of SHOW Dessert Wine: King Frosch 2015 Noble Sweet Riesling Auslese, which is also known as #8B on our website. It was also awarded a special Platinum Award. This means it received a point score on the 100 scale. The score it received was 95 points!
SILVER AWARD WINNER: King Frosch’s 2014 Dry Dornfelder received the Silver Award. This isn’t surprising! One of our best-selling red wines, this is the second Silver Medal it has received. This delicious, earthy dry red wine offers a full mouth experience with a clean finish. Light tannins, peppery finish. It’s also a rare dry red in the U.S., as the Dornfelder varietal is grown in limited quantities and not many are exported. This German estate wine is a winner. And remember, all King Frosch All Natural wines have no artificial coloring, or taste enhancers and they have the lowest levels of sulfites possible, which makes for clean, enjoyable drinking.
Love wines, hate headaches? If you love wines but are getting tired of over-oaked Chardonnays and big reds with too much alcohol and a harsh finish, you should try King Frosch All Natural Wines. The wines you drink should make you feel good, not give you a headache or be hard to swallow. Fresh, young, fun, yet old world at the same time, the King Frosch line of All Natural wines is converting wine, cocktail and beer drinkers into wine lovers. These wines are not pretentious or snobby. They are just as likely to appeal to a “big red” wine drinker who never drinks white wine, as they are to white wine drinkers who are tired of oak, oak and more oak. Most importantly, many of our customers say they don’t get headaches when they enjoy our wines.
