In the beginning, Schlossadler International Wines traveled the European wine country looking for small, family wineries. We had a dream: to create a wine import company that made unique and exclusive wines available directly to the individual. We wanted to share our love of German and Austrian wines with friends and family all over the United States. This dream came true in 1979 with the founding of Schlossadler.


In the time since our early reconnaissance missions, Schlossadler has grown and evolved but has stayed true to the original dream. Schlossadler continues to seek out small estate wineries, boutique, and family-owned vineyards. But now we offer more of a good thing–our intrepid wine consultants offer over 70 international delights to our clients.

Today, we can proudly offer you one of the most extensive selections of German and Austrian wines in the United States.


Each wine is delivered promptly, by the case, into the arms of our happy clients. And each wine has passed rigorous Schlossadler testing: We taste and re-taste and taste again…! We love every wine we sell; we know each vintner personally. We have ambled through many of these vineyards, tasting luscious fruit from the vine. We invite you to taste our international findings. Straight from the vineyard to the glass, they are the next best thing to a trip to Europe!


Schlossadler works hard to develop lifelong friendships with each of our clients. We have a trained, professional staff of wine consultants to assist you in selecting the perfect wine for every occasion. Schlossadler’s wine consultants are guides, offering fun and adventurous ways to our Schlossadler’s world of wines. Our consultants invite clients to share private wine seminars at home, cruise the romantic byways of Southern California harbors while sipping the “nectar of the gods,” or find us pouring glass after glass at gourmet restaurant tastings. They journey from Boston to Honolulu, from Phoenix to Anchorage, in their enthusiastic quest to share the best of regional wines from around the globe.


You too can join the Schlossadler family. We welcome your phone call or e-mail and look forward to making your next glass of wine a wonderfully unique experience.

Born and raised in Germany, Hans moved to the United States in 1984. After seven years of working in fine and not-so-fine dining establishments, he was hired (or let’s say “discovered”) by founder Henry Pauk. In 1995, Hans made Henry an offer he just couldn’t refuse and purchased Schlossadler, Inc. Hans has been working with wines for over 25 years now.
