In the Plane: Germanwings from Belgrade to Cologne (September 2009)

Germanwings is a no-thrills low-cost carrier, which belongs to the Lufthansa group. They offered three wines, all in 0,187 liters bottles (i.e. a quarter of a normal bottle) and each for Euro 4,--. A Prosecco, a red South African Wine and a white German wine. I chose the latter. It was a good choice.

2008 Weisser Burgunder, QbA trocken, Rheinhessen
Krug’scher Hof, Gau Odernheim

Krug’scher Hof is owned and managed by the winemaker couple Regina and Klaus Menger-Krug, who also own and operate the Motzenbecker estate in the Pfalz; the sparkling Menger Krug wines from there are well know.

The Krug’scher Hof Weisser Burgunder is an excellent "Gutswein", with 11.5 percent alcohol, which I enjoyed very much flying over Serbia, Hungary, Austria and Germany. It had a nice acidity and was fresh on the palate.
