The German Wine Society finally returned to Old Europe restaurant for the The New Germany – Red, Dry, Sparkling event. It was an awesome event with great food and great wine to accompany it! Below is a small excerpt of the event:
Annette presented 3 red wines, 1 Sekt (sparkling wine) and 6 dry and 1 “halbtrocken” white wines from 10 out of the 13 wine regions in Germany.To read the full recap of the event please follow the link to Christian Schiller’s excellent wine blog!
The tasting also included 2 Grosse Lage/ Grand Cru GG wines. Germany is increasingly becoming known as a serious red wine producer; Germany is the #3 producer world-wide of Pinot-Noir (= Spätburguder).
Germans have always been obsessed with sparkling wines: 1 out of 4 sparklers produced in the world is consumed in Germany; and Germany is home to the second largest sparkling wine producer world-wide.
