German Pinot Noir – comes of age

Irish Times Spatburgunder 7 June 2014

In cooperation with several other importers we organised a tasting of German Pinot Noir in May 2014. We anticipated some interest and were really pleased to see such a great crowd. The seminar was set for 20 people but we couldn’t turn anyone away and twice as many attended the seminar with more getting a chance to try the 25 wines on tasting. Thanks to Anne Krebiehl @AnneInVino for some great insights into German Pinot. If you would like to explore more these are just some of the wines we have available
