WEINrestaurant Ayler Kupp

WEINrestaurant Ayler Kupp is definitely a restaurant out of the ordinary. The view towards the Ayler Kupp vineyard is stunning, but most importantly the restaurant has been run since 2014 by Jörg and Laura Diekert.

Laura is in the front and Jörg is in the back (kitchen). Before taking over the WEINHotel and WEINrestaurant Ayler Kupp both worked in these positions for several years at Michelin starred restaurants.

Inter alia, Laura was the Deputy Maître d’hôtel at Christian Bau's Victor’s Fine Dining in Perl-Nenning, a 3-star Michelin restaurant.

Since his apprenticeship at Restaurant Sanct Peter in Bad Neuenahr Jörg Dieckert worked exclusively in Michelin-starred restaurants including at Christian Bau's Victor’s Fine Dining in Perl-Nenning and gained his own Michelin star in 2011 as head chef of  Restaurant Ars Vivendi“ of Hotel Jagdhof Glashütte. Since 2014 he heads the kitchen team of WEINrestaurant Ayler Kupp.

You can imagine that food, the wine and the service were exquisite.

Annette Schiller, President of ombiasy PR and WineTours and member of the American Wine Society, led 2 wine tastings - "Renaissance of Terroir in Germany: Back to the Roots" and "Syrah and Shiraz: Is there any Difference, do they Taste the Same?" - at the 2019 Annual Meetings of the American Wine Society. In addition, Annette and Christian Schiller poured a selection of German wines at the Showcase of Wines event during the second evening.

Pictures: Arriving from McLean, Virginia in St. Pete Beach, Florida

The tastings were sponsored by ombiasy WineTours and the wine producers whose wines were presented or their US importers.

The 2019 American Wine Society Annual Meetings took place at St. Pete Beach in Florida, on  Oct. 31 – Nov. 2, 2019.

More than 600 members from all over the USA came to this 3-day event, filled with tastings, seminars and presentations.

A sunset dinner boot cruise took place on Wednesday evening.

Thursday was the day of wine judging. There were full-day courses for those who want to become a certified AWS Wine Judge. This is a 3-year program. Also, the Amateur and Commercial Wine Competitions took place on Thursday.

Friday and Saturday was filled with about 50 wine seminars, led by winery owners, wine educators, and renowned winemakers. The breakfasts, lunches, dinners and after-dinner gatherings provided ample opportunities to network with other AWS members.

Almost all of the pictures in this posting are mine except for a few that I took from facebook accounts of facebook friends.

The American Wine Society

The American Wine Society was founded in 1967 as a non-profit, educational, consumer-oriented organization for those interested in learning more about all aspects of wine. On October 7, 1967, around 200 grape growers, home winemakers, and wine lovers gathered at Dr. Konstantin Frank’s vineyard on Keuka Lake near Hammondsport, NY for the AWS’ initial meeting.

In December of the same year, the thirteen charter members, led by Founder Dr. Konstantin Frank, met to determine the organization structure of AWS and elect officers. Now in its 49th year, the American Wine Society is the largest consumer based wine education organization in North America. Membership is open to anyone interested in wine and over 21 years of age.

Pictures: Going Over the Slide Shows

In the early days, AWS members were located primarily in the eastern part of the country. As the society grew , we established chapters throughout the eastern U.S., then into the south and Midwest, and finally into western states. Today, the American Wine Society has over 5,000 members in 45 states and 120 chapters across the U.S.

Each November the Society hosts a three-day national conference with two full days of nearly 50 educational seminars to choose from. Winery owners, wine educators, and renowned wine makers are selected to present sessions during this national event. In addition, a program educating members to become AWS certified wine judges is conducted on the day preceding the seminars.

Pre-Conference

Annette and I arrived a couple of days before the conference. We checked out the area. In particular we liked Crabby Bill's Seafood and Sola Bistro & Wine Bar in St. Pete Beach. The former is a particularly good place to watch the sun go under. The later is owned and run by Tigran Khachaturyan from Armenia and of course, we had a Armenian wine, co-produced by Paul Hobbs.

Session C-4: Renaissance of Terroir in Germany: Back to the Roots

Presenter: Annette Schiller, Owner, Ombiasy PR & Wine Tours

Abstract: “Location, Location, Location”: That’s the most important requirement for making a good wine. This basic principle was abolished in Germany with the wine law of 1971, when historic vineyard sites were merged. 35,000 single-vineyard sites were reduced to 5,000 big-surfacearea vineyards. In the late 1980’s a movement to return to history started, and the focus shifted back to the “terroir,” the single-vineyard site. This seminar emphasizes the importance of terroir in the German wine landscape. We will explore important single vineyards and will taste 6 wines representing the specific terroir.

9:00 am – 10:15 am Sessions E

Session E-6: Title: Mixed Black Magic

Presenter: Joel Peterson, Owner & Winemaker, Once & Future Wine

Abstract: What is the magic in California’s old vine Zinfandels? Some would argue that it’s the same element that makes these wines uniquely Californian. That element is the “mixed blacks” that support, mold and enhance the flavor and character of Zinfandel. Taken as a whole, the mélange frequently makes a more perfect wine. While there are many grape varieties that have been historically co-planted with Zinfandel, there are three that figure heavily in many old vine Zinfandel plantings. Those three are Carignane,Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet.Have you ever wondered exactly where these grapes came from and exactly what they add to the blend? We will explore those varieties and what each adds to the character of the wine.

Session E-3: Give This (Person) a Cigare!

Presenter: Randall Grahm, President-for-Life, Bonny Doon Vineyard

Abstract: An examination of the stylistic evolution of Le Cigare Volant, a New World homage to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and a very stylized wine (vin d’effort)made by a terroirist at heart. Join Randall Grahm as he pours and discusses four vintages of this iconic Bonny Doon wine from 2005 to 2018.

Session E-4: Syrah and Shiraz: Is there any Difference, do they Taste the Same?

Presenter: Annette Schiller, Owner, Ombiasy PR & Wine Tours

Abstract: It’s not a big surprise that one of the famous wine producers on the northern Rhône calls one of his wines Chevalier de Stérimberg, the name of a Crusader in the 13th century. For a long time it was assumed that this Crusader brought a grape variety from Persia to France. Later this grape was called Syrah, and the name can be traced back to the ancient Persian city of Shiraz. Genetically, Syrah and Shiraz are the same grape, however there is a difference in the finished wines, depending on where they are grown and how they are made. We will explore Syrah and Shiraz by tasting 6 different wines from around the world.

7:30 pm – 10:00 pm Grand Banquet/ Award of Merit: Randall Grahm

During the Grand Banquet, the AWS honored Randall Grahm, founder of Bonny Doon Vineyards, with its Award of Merit. Wine consumers benefit from Grahm’s pioneering efforts with Rhône varieties in California, best captured by red blend Le Cigare Volant. Also, Grahm embraced the Stelvin (screw cap) closure as an alternative to cork. Grahm continues to challenge the conservative wine world, with an ambitious grape breeding program and new Popelouchum Vineyards.

As the oldest and largest organization of wine consumers in the country, the AWS celebrates those whose work and influence has improved wine and wine enjoyment. Officially, the award is
earned “for substantial and meritorious achievement in viticulture, enology, education, journalism or merchandising, that has enhanced wine quality and wine enjoyment.
