Freisamer is a white German wine grape variety grown primarily in the Baden region with some plantings in eastern Switzerland. The variety was created in 1916 by Karl Müller at the Staatliches Weinbauinstitut in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany by crossing Pinot Gris and Silvaner. The purpose of the crossing was to find an improved variety similar to Pinot Gris.

Freisamer is primarily used to make full bodied sweet wines.

In 2008, there were only 4 hectares (9.9 acres) of Freisamer plantations in Germany, most of which were in Baden.
