On November 8, 2016 an exiting blind tasting was hold to select some of the finest classified wines produced by vintners of the VDP in Germany. It was a wonderful experience showing a huge number of top rated wines. In the categories of Pinot Blanc (Weißburgunder), Pinog Gris (Grauburgunder) and Silvaner, one wine was heading each category. For Riesling, the VDP and myself agreed to decide the best wine of each categaorie of wine areas by drawing lots of all wines with at least 93 points or more. The result of this selection will be available for tasting in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge of Muinch during 2017.”

As every year on the last Monday and Tuesday of August, the VDP showed a huge array of over 500 wines from the german Grand Cru vineyards, designated as Grosses Gewächs, in a preview tasting for professionals and the press. The tasting was hold on August 29 and 30, 2016.
As the sheer quantity of wines available was too much for a short tasting session, I focussed on the grape variety Riesling and on the rather classic areas such as Mosel, Saar, Ruwer, Pfalz, Rheingau, Nahe and Mittelrhein. From these wine regions I have tasted all Rieslings available. In addition I also tasted a small selection of Riesling from Rheinhessen. The tasting showed a very high and rather homogenous quality level due to good conditions in 2015 but also applied experience and knowledge of the vintners. A very successful tasting with highly recommendable wines.”
