Who & Why

Find out who we are and why we do this: About us

1997 was a great vintage, but also a hot one. Not all Nebbiolo have held up well.

For a perfect long evening, you just need awesome wines.

We have from Juris 2007 Pinot Noir different vineyards and a 2016 Barolo Cannubi.

Certainly, there are more great Blaufränkisch in Austria than in Würtemberg, where the grape variety is called Lemberger. But there are more and more. In previous vintages, Schnaitmann's Fellbacher Lämmler was almost always the best Lemberger, but the other winemakers have caught up. Compared to top Spätburgunder from Germany, Lembergers are still a bargain for the quality.

There is a Brunello Cerretalto and Barolo from the great 2016 and 2019 vintages. The new Barolo vintages have such perfect tannins that they can be drunk with pleasure even young.

Besides Saffredi, we have top Riesling from Peter-Jakob Kühn and Robert Weil.

Riesling, White Rioja and Fortified are degustated this time.

Today we taste a Belle Epoque as well as Nebbiolo from the 2019 vintage.

There are Freisa and Verduno Perlaverga.

After the vacation, we return to old habits and taste great wines.

This time we have Switzerland, Rhone and Piedmont.

Wines are from Alphone Mellot, Francois Villard, Charles Joguet, Bartolo Mascarello and Conterno-Fantino.

We have a young Pinot Noir and a mature Barbaresco Riserva.

Château de Retout is a real price tip.

Sauvignon Blanc from Von Winning and Silvaner from Klaus Keller.

We have Roederer Cristal, a Spanish Orange wine, an awesome Pinot Noir and a Burgundy.

Today there are 3 different top Barolo from 3 different vintages.

Today we have some bottle that I brought back from Italy in May.

The Chardonnay Bussiador, together with Gaia & Rey, is one of the best Chardonnays in Italy. We have it this time, together with an Arneis Spumante.

It is boring to always drink only German wines with the top grape varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir. Therefore, this time we have Silvaner and Weissburgunder (=Pinot Blanc).

For a birthday, you have to open great wines.

Timorasso is a white grape variety in Piedmont and in great demand right now. There is a lot of information on the website timorasso.de. We taste the top wine from Roagna.

We also taste the first Barolo from the 2019 vintage.

We have Elio Grasso vs. Alain Voge.

We have Barolo from Giovanni Canonica and Vietti.

This is a perfect pirate for any Cornas tasting.

This time we have wines from the Rhone, Tuscany, Palatinate and Würtemberg.

This time it is Deiss, Vietti, a semi-sweet from Georgia und a sweet Madiran.

A friend donated two interesting bottles.

Today we have 3 great Chardonnay from California and Burgundy.

Today's wines are Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Pieropan Soave and Chardonnay from Piedmont.

There is Riesling and wines from France - Bordeaux and Rhone.

If you're looking for a modern Pinot Noir, this is it.

We just returned from a fantastic wine trip from Bordeaux, organized by Armin Diel (www.armindiel.com). Therefore, we have immediately tasted a wine from the travel program, Château Canon-La-Gaffeliere. And also Chardonnays from Bernhard Koch, which are among the top German Chardonnays. Weingut Bernhard Koch from the Palatinate is not so well known, but makes sensational Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which belong to the top of Germany and are also very durable.

Two of the best sparklings from Germany and a truly great Pinot Noir - also from Germany.

The new Kistler Chardonnays 2020 from the mailing list just arrived.  Both wines can be drunk now. But cellaring will reward more complexity and finesse.

We have two 1964 wines, a Barolo and a Bordeaux, as well as the 1994 Orion Old Vines and a fantastic sweet wine experience.

2011 was the first year we imported Kistler via the mailing list.

Once again, brilliant wines from California and additionally a Mosel Spätlese.

We had the opportunity to taste some wines at a consignment.

Today we have Rheinhessen and Rheingau - Klaus Keller with his best white-labeled Riesling and Weingut Krone with two excellent Pinot Noir.

Hildegard seems to be a Chardonnay, but it is not. As a comparison, a great Chardonnay from Aubert.

Garage de Papa is perhaps the best wine from Israel at the moment. Bernhard Koch makes fantastic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Palatinate, but is not yet as well known despite the high quality.

This time: the top sparkling wine from Raumland, two Sauvignon Blanc from the New World and a Cote Rotie from Guigal.

Actually, the 2021 Riesling vintage is still far too young, but a potential rating can already be given.

The wine of the evening was the 1967 Monte Real Blanco Reserva Semidulce, but we also had a great Champagne and three great reds.

There are ripe Dom Perignon, Karl Erbes and Chapoutier. We still don't know why Karl Erbes hasn't sold out long ago, given its quality and value for money.

We deal with a great Riesling and two red wines that, tasted blind, taste like the Northern Rhone.

This time we have a mature Champagne, a very good Bordeaux and a sensational Barolo.

This time there are La Spinetta and Gaja.

It is time again to open some high quality sample bottles.

Let's have a long evening with wines from different countries.
