The German Wine Society (Washington DC Chapter) organized a Sparkling Wines of the World tasting on March 25th, 2017 that was graciously hosted at the home of Christian and Annette Schiller. GWS Secretary Joseph Aguiar was the event coordinator and along with Annette Schiller led the evening tasting. Below is a small excerpt of the event:
Sekt is made in all German wine regions, both in the méthode traditionnelle and charmat method. There are three groups of Sekt makers: (i) large and (ii) smaller Sekt houses, who only make Sekt and (iii) winemakers, who make predominantly wine, but complement their wine selection by a few Sekts. The Sekts produced by large Sekt estates tend to be in the demy-sweet and sweet range, while the Sekts of smaller estates and the wine makers are mostly in the brut and extra brut range.To read the full recap of the event please follow the link to Christian Schiller’s excellent wine blog!
