It is an accolade for the country wine makers of Baden and the participating country wine makers: Jancis Robinson, one of the most influential and known persons in the world of wine, has accepted the patronage of this 3rd annual event. She is known as the "Grand Dame" of wine critic. This wine journalist writes and moderates for renowned media; she has written and published books that have become standard works of reference when it comes to the subject of wine. "I look forward to being the patron of the country wine market in Baden, 2019" the 68-year-old sais, "and am convinced that the highest priority of the participating wine makers is to create the best wine for the today's generation of wine lovers. Like other uncompromising, in pursuit of quality and inspired wine makers from other European regions, they are not prepared to be creatively limited by unsuitable bureaucratic regulations. I particularly look forward to expand my knowledge of the exciting specialties of wine region of Baden."
Her acceptance is a big stroke if luck for organizer and co-initiator, Hanspeter Ziereinsen, and also a confirmation:" there is practically no greater recognition of our work than this. I would have said that is crazy had someone professed this 2 years ago" said the wine maker from Efringen-Kirchen.
An additional highlight for the country wine makers is the participation of Stephan Reinhardt, one of the most renown German wine journalists: The first German to taste, rate and write for Robert Parker's "Wine Advocate" was Reinhardt in April 2014. This is one of the most influential publications in the world of wine. Under the framework of the so-called Masterclass, Reinhardt will expand the insight under the theme "The variety of terroir in country wines from Baden" (subject to an extra charge and with prior registration).
19 free country winemakers will be presenting approximately 120 wines at the third self-organized annual event on Friday April 26, 2019, from 14.00 to 19.00 (2 to 7 pm) at Landhotel Alte Post, Posthalterweg 79379, Müllheim.
The time period of this event has expanded to 5 hours so that visitors and the wine makers can get into a deeper conversation in a relaxed and even better atmosphere. All wine makers are present in person and look forward to stimulating discussions.
