Congrats to Dönnhoff for being one of James Sucklings 2021 top 100 wines. The winery received a 100pt score and ranked a super impressive third place with its 2020 Riesling Nahe Hermannshöhle GG. Judges described it as having “…ravishing, peachy fruit and… compelling, salty finish…”. Cheers!
After a two-year journey, German wine culture has been awarded its certificate for UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. In an official certificate award ceremony that took place in Düsseldorf on November 18th, German viniculture was recognized alongside 19 other forms of cultural expression for its contribution. Unlike tangible heritage which is about architecture and physical sites, recognition is for people and their skills. It’s just one more reason to enjoy a glass of German wine!
Something that’s beautiful about German words is how they describe exactly what they mean. Take the word “Die Weinwanderung”. It translates as something like “wine hiking” – and that’s exactly what wine lovers are doing these days across Germany’s wine regions in a quest for the perfect glass! You don’t have to go as far for a fine bottle of German wine. Just check out our store!
Germany’s cool climate means wines with high acidity which, in turn, means you can lay that Riesling and Spätburgunder down for a while to let its flavors unfurl. In fact, quality German wines are some of the most ageable in the world! If you’re looking to build up your cellar, check out what Germany has to offer across its reds and whites.
German Riesling produces everything from dry Trocken styles to luscious Trockenbeerenauslese with sparkling Sekt also a feature of this fine grape. In celebration, ‘Prost Every Moment’ is underway with Wine Enthusiast’s ’40 Under 40’ winners sharing what Riesling means to them – and the best food to pair it with!
In the mood for modern-French dishes or carvery cuisine? A chic atmosphere or counter-top dining? Japanese fusion, Italian, Indian, homegrown and much more, New Jersey isn’t called the Garden State for nothing – as this “Best 30 Restaurant” list of the year shows. Cheers!
