Hanging out with Rheingau Winemakers: Dirk Wuertz, Desiree Eser, Alexander Jakob Jung, Hansi Bausch and Christian Ress in Hattenheim, Rheingau, Germany

Pictures: Hanging out with Rheingau Winemakers at Weingut Balthasar Ress in Hattenheim, Germany

Weingut Balthasar Ress winemaker and social media guru Dirk Wuertz brought together a group of winemakers, bloggers, wine journalists and consultants to brainstorm about where the Rheingau should go in terms of its wines, to eat and drink together and to have fun. We indeed had a productive discussion (see: Rheingau wohin? Diskussionsrunde im Weingut Balthasar Ress) which continued for many days on facebook. And we had fun, a good dinner and lots of excellent wines. The posting uses mainly pictures to convey an impression of a great afternoon and the evening at Weingut Balthasar Ress in Hattenheim in the Rheingau.
