This is a creamy, elegant soup. I first had Red Wine Soup several years ago in Wurzberg at the Ratskeller. I found this recipe in a German cookbook and it is the closest I could come to imitating their recipe. You can use white wine, if you wish.


  1. Beat egg with cream and sugar.
  2. Add water and wine to egg mixture.
  3. Heat to gentle simmer. Ladle into serving bowl and top with 1 a dollop of creme fraiche. Serve immediately.
