VDP. Die Prädikatsweingüter
A masterclass in VDP wines: the association which brings together Germany’s most prestigious and high quality winegrowers. We will have the chance to compare Rieslings from different terroirs and regions, and of younger and older vintages; we will discover the Spätburgunder of Ahr and Franken, with their impressive style and minerality, and widely considered “rivals” to Burgundy. There will also be a notable Classic Method sparkling wine as an opener, and an inimitable Spätlese dessert wine to close proceedings. The tastings will be directed by Nicoletta Dicova, Italian ambassador for VDP
