The name Rose but would not be allowed under EU wine law. Certain grape varieties are not required. There are different versions for the meaning of the name. Among the most common is that the name of the born in Marbach in Swabia, the poet Frederick of Schiller (1759-1805) was derived.

But that can not be true, since the wine name was used centuries before Schiller's lifetime. Much more, it is probably derived from the iridescent color of the wine. This name may also be used for quality sparkling wine or quality sparkling wine, if these products are made only from wine which may be called "Schillerwein".
