Blindprobe 2005er Spätburgunder vom Kaiserstuhl incl. Piraten

Hier an dieser Stelle zuerst noch einmal meine Gratulation an die Sieger des diesjährigen Vinum Rotweinpreises! Und genau zu diesem Anlass gab es am Donnerstag den 8. Oktober eine große Blinddegustation im Weingut Freiherr von Gleichenstein. Tage zuvor sammelte Johannes fleißig die besten 2005er Spätburgunder der einzelnen Betriebe ein.

Cebit Riesling Twitter Live Tasting Follow Up from Patrick Johner on Vimeo.

This is a follow up Video from the Cebit Twitter Live Wine Tasting Event held on 7th March 2009 in Hannover. Here I am 3 days later tasting and commenting the wines once again.

I would like to thank Matthias Metze from Viva-Vino for organizing the whole event.
Marlene Duffy from Bottleplot.com for her great moderation.
My four collegues Thomas Lippert, Dirk Würtz Martin Bercher and Manfred Schmidt for their wonderful wines.

And Götz for telling me not to talk with such a broad Kaiserstuhl accent into the camera 😉 PS: My Twitterlovesong is beeing rehearsed

Wine without Borders

WINE WITHOUT BORDERS is the new blog created by the Specialty Wine Retailers Association, for which Tom Wark from the Fermentation Blog acts as Executive Director.

Sending wine from one US State to the other is pretty restricted.

Importing wines to the US means that the Importer needs a Distributor in each state to be able to send wine into that state.

Also we have had private clients asking for our wines in the US. Or asking if we could send a wine to a private person in the USA. Well we could, but the wine would never arrive.
