Special Feature

The fascinating and unique German wine often I get asked the question, why I’m selling just German wine. The explanation is simple for me: the German winegrowers offer a big variety of grapes, wines and taste and the climate and weather make interesting and exciting German wines with each vintage. Germany is one of the world’s northernmost wine-growing countries. Winegrowing is influenced to the humid climate of the Gulf stream, on the other hand by dry continental climate. Different types of soil, constantly changing weather conditions and different types of wine development rise to many different flavours in a grape variety. Thus, the wine selection is so big, that there is a corresponding variety of wines for every taste, every occasion and for every meal.

Climate and weather pose new challenges for winemakers each year. All of this makes German wine so unique and special. In Germany, there are thirteen recognized wine-growing areas are located mainly in the southwest of Germany. In the individual the: the AHR, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Mittelrhein, Mosel, close, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Saale-Unstrut and Saxony. Saale-Unstrut is the northernmost wine region, the easternmost is Saxony. The southwestern wine-growing regions are affected by the climate of the Gulf stream, the north-eastern areas are determined by the Kontinentalkima. Different hours, different altitudes and different floors give the wines of the various wine-growing regions typical taste characteristics of each grape variety. The largest wine-growing area is Rheinhessen.

The traditional family estate, represented by us courtyard Oswald from Guntersblum/Rheinhessen is my absolute favorite Winery. The winemaker 20 hectares cultivated wine country in very good locations. Traditional grape varieties such as Riesling, Silvaner, Spatburgunder and Dornfelder are complemented by less known or difficult-to-grow varieties, how.B. Gewurztraminer, winner vine or Cabernet Dorio. The wine is deliberately risk of a late harvest to the optimal quality of the grapes reach. Modern as well as traditional wine development methods used for the development, to ensure a most gentle handling of the harvested grapes.
