BRINGING AMAZING WINE FROM HEROIC, SUSTAINABLE SMALL GROWERS FROM AROUND THE WINE WORLD, £5.95 SHIPPING UK WIDE ON WINES
Germany has a long history of winemaking. In the course of their conquests some 2,000 years ago, the Romans – who adopted viticulture from the Greeks and Etruscans – introduced viticulture to the Germanic territories. In the 8th century, Charlemagne regulated viticulture and viniculture as well as wine-related commerce. Monasteries were centre of wine culture, and wine was the drink of the people throughout the Middle Ages.
The 19th century could be seen as a “golden age” of German wine, a time when wines from the Mosel and the Rhine were favourites among royalty and fetched higher prices than even Champagne and Bordeaux. Today, German vintners are introducing innovative ideas to modernize their centuries-old traditions: celebrating iconic varieties like Riesling and the Pinots while experimenting with new grapes, styles and techniques.
