Schloss Johannisberg and the story of Riesling

Three hundred years ago this year, a far-sighted noble decided to plant a vineyard with just one grape – Riesling. It was a decision that changed wine history. Ilka Lindemann has the story.

Anne Krebiehl MW: Why German wine has an exciting future

Last night Anne Krebiehl MW won the prestigious International Wine Book of the Year award for The Wines of Germany at the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers Awards, her definitive and much-needed book on German wine. Here we re-run an interview she did with The Buyer when the book was launched. To buy a copy there is a hot link at the end of the feature.

Ergebnisse der Riesling Auktion 2020

There's nothing quite like the pleasure of sipping a fine Scotch whisky, for those whose tastes run to such indulgences. But how can you be sure that you're paying for the real deal and not some cheap counterfeit? Good news: physicists at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have figured out how to test the authenticity of bottles of fine Scotch whisky using laser light, without ever having to open the bottles. They described their work in a recent paper published in the journal Analytical Methods.

Gut Hermannsberg Shows A New Face For German Rieslings

Gut Hermannsberg Shows A New Face For German Rieslings

The respect for great German Rieslings has long been higher than sales of this classic varietal. Once, such wines were distinguished by their degree of sweetness, but the worldwide preference for dry wines blunted the appeal of German Rieslings, whose producers re-formulated many of their wines to be “trocken,” dry in an attempt to win back wine drinkers. Germany still makes superb sweet wines, but the future of Rieslings is in the hands of German’s young winemakers at small estates like Gut Hermannsberg in the Name region. The winery dates back to 1902 as a Royal Prussian Domaine, but today winemaker Kasten Peter makes dry Rieslings, noting, “Dogmatism isn't our thing.” I interviewed the winery’s CEO Achin Kirchner about the current state of Rieslings.

Germany's changing vineyards

In a recent post, I discussed Australia's changing vineyards, as an example of a New World wine-producing area that has changed considerably since 1960, in terms of both vineyard area and grape varietal composition. [Note: one late part of that post has since been modified, due to an error in calculations.] In this second part of the series, I look at Germany, as an example of an old-established vineyard area.

Mosel Fine Wines nieuwsbrief 54

Zie: nieuwsbrief Moezel wijnen

2019 is een geweldig jaar. De GG-s worden massaal tegen schappelijke prijzen in de markt gezet.
De wijnboeren en boerinnen hebben het moeilijk.
De consumenten drinken nu in coronatijd ca 8% meer wijn maar dat maakt het verlies van het wegvallen van de horeca niet goed.

THE NEW MAGNETISM OF ALT MOSEL

They’re untethered. Free to make wine any way, anywhere they want.

They chose the Mosel. A region defined by staggering slopes and daunting hand work, a reputation for conventional farming, a signature grape famous for being a tough sell, and a surfeit of villages and vineyards whose lifeblood had seemed to be ebbing away.

MÜLLER-THURGAU: A SHOULDER FOR GERMANY TO CRY ON

“Nothing very good has ever been made of Müller-Thurgau,” said the German wine webinar moderator, armed with the same parade of stale clichés and tired narratives. Perhaps it was the irritating circumstances of quarantine coupled with my then standard cranky mood or maybe it was simply the ridiculousness of the statement. But that outright lie was one I could no longer let stand.
