Badischer Landweinmarkt - this is what it is about
more and more winemakers, also in Baden, are marketing and presenting their wines as country wine. They are convinced from their individuality and do not want be limited by the regulations which are limited to mainstream products. They do not want to force their wines into the molds expected by "the wine of certified origin and quality" (Qualitätsweine). Individuality and the character of their wine is key, thus a different understanding of quality - off the beaten track of the conventional rules and regulations. The country wine makers in Baden were and are not allowed to present their wines in established presentations like the yearly wine trade fair in Offenburg. This was the impetus to create a platform to present the country wines in 2017.
DThe 24 participating winemakers, coming from St. Leon to Weil am Rhein, will present about 200 wines.
This is what is important for the participating wine makers:
The vineyard: Qualitative high-grade grapes. This means an (at least) close to nature, extensive and intensive (hand)craft in the vineyard and in the harvest.
The wine cellar: to produce, as much as possible, without manipulation.
Time: wine needs time to become a wine. This is why there are no 2019 wines presented here at the country wine market only wines from the previous years
A list of all participating winemakers is available and summary of all the information (in German) is here in a flyer.
The country wine market will be officially opened by Joschka Fischer our patron.
There will be the possibility to have dinner after the wine tasting, around 20.00 ( 8 pm) with the "remaining wines". This is a "local smoker menu" (a BBQ) from the butchers Brunner & Rüdlin. The number of participants is limited so please reserve before 01 April, 2020, with a prepayment of 81,00 Euros per person.
