What is the German equivalent of Prosecco?

The German equivalent of Prosecco is a type of sparkling wine called Sekt. While Sekt may not have the same international recognition as Prosecco, it is a popular and widely consumed sparkling wine in Germany. Sekt is made using various grape varietals, including Riesling, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris, and is produced using the traditional method of secondary fermentation in the bottle, similar to Champagne. Sekt can range from dry to sweet and is often enjoyed as an aperitif or paired with German cuisine.
