For our next event, we welcome once more David Martin of Citadel Trading Corporation. David will be reacquainting us with three venerable estates that have lacked a strong sponsor in our area for quite a while: Schloss Vollrads in the Rheingau, Frederick Wilhelm Gymnasium in the Mosel, and Franz Keller in Baden, and adding the Bischofliche Weinguter and Markus Molitor, two more classical Mosel estates. Viticulture of Riesling began at Schloss Vollrads 800 years ago, and almost 500 years ago at Friedrich Wilhelm Gymnasium. Both estates are rich in history and produce iconic wines that are benchmarks in their growing districts. The Bischofliche Weinguter was formed in 1966 by the merger of three iconic estates: the Bischofliches Konvikt, established in 1840, the Bischofliches Priesterseminar, established in 1773, and the Hohe Domkirche, established in 1851. Weingut Markus Molitor acquired a property built as a winery at the end of the 19th century in 1984. The estate completed extensive renovations from 2009 – 2012, and won an award for architecture in 2013. The estate produces wine from virtually every top site in the Mosel. With German red wines rising in prominence and rose season just around the corner (we hope!) we will sample the Pinot Noir rose of Franz Keller. These fine estate wines will be bookended by an exceptional sparkling wine to start and an excellent value ice wine to conclude. Please plan to join us for what will be a terrific event. The wines to be poured are:
“Relax” sparkling wine
2016 Franz Keller Pinot Noir Rose
2014 Schloss Vollrads Riesling Kabinett Medium Dry
2015 Bischofliche Weinguter Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett

The tasting will be held at the award winning Caffe Aldo Lamberti in Cherry Hill, NJ.

From Philadelphia and points West, take the Ben Franklin Bridge, and exit from one of the two left lanes. Follow signs to
Routes 30 – 130; stay in one of the two left lanes. Two miles East of the Bridge, the highway divides at the top of a ramp. Bear left, towards Routes 38& 70. At the bottom of the ramp, move over one (or two) lanes to your right, to stay on Route 70 East. Go straight for three miles; 1/4 mile before you come to the restaurant, you will see a sign for Grove Street. Lamberti’s is on your right on Route 70 at the Grove Street turn. (Traffic is normally light on 70 East from the Bridge to Grove St., and the normal ride is 7 minutes.)
From NJ or points South, take Route 295 North to Route 561, Haddonfield/Gibbsboro, and turn left towards Haddonfield.
Follow 561 until it ends, at Kress Liquors. The road will fork to your left; stay in the right lane and bear left onto Potter Street.
Follow Potter to the light at Kings Highway, then jog across onto Grove Street. Stay on Grove Street through Haddonfield, and across the bridge over Cooper River. As you are approaching the intersection of Grove Street and Route 70, right before 70 you will see a sign on your left for Commerce Bank. Turn left into the bank parking lot, and continue straight past the bank into the back parking lot at Lamberti’s.
