In addition, the German Wine Route has given the name Weinstraße to the region surrounding the route and to the administrative district (Kreis) of Südliche Weinstraße. Local municipalities sometimes add "an der Weinstraße" to their names.

Weinstraße is also the name of a medieval trading route in Hesse. The name does not refer to wine but to the Hessian for "Wagenstraße" ("cart" or "wagon road," Hessian: We-in, Wän, or Wäng = Wagen).
