Weingut Dr. Loosen: It’s always a very special event to go out with the team and harvest icewine ­čśŐ❄️. We are grateful that we were able to finally finish the great harvest of 2021 yesterday morning with this highlight.

Press Release, German Wine Institute, 12/22/2021

The Johanneshof winery in Bad Kreuznach-Bosenheim was the first to be able to harvest icewine this winter season 2021. According to the owner Martin Korrell, Riesling grapes could be harvested at temperatures of minus eight degrees in the "Bad Kreuznacher Paradise" site.

Weingut D├Ânnhoff: This morning we had the chance to #harvest #Eiswein ❄️ in our #BR├ťCKE #vinyard. Perfect conditions and super healthy #grapes and of course we used the old #basketpress to get the best quality. What an outstanding finish to the wine year 2021 ­čśŐ­čĹĆ

Harvesting icewine in early morning hours

Korrell from the Nahe region thus fulfills the legal requirements for ice wine harvesting, which requires temperatures of below -7 degrees Celsius. In very early morning hours of december 21st around 20 harvest workers collected the frozen grapes with a must weight of 142 degrees Oechsle. This unit of measurement indicates the must weight of the sugar content and other dissolved substances in the grape juice.

Weingut Maximin Gr├╝nhaus: This morning we were able to harvest Ice Wine.With the first sunrise at freezing -8°C we harvested beautiful and frozen grapes with a team of helping hands. It is the first Ice Wine since 2016 what makes us even more happy.

Can‘t wait to taste it.

Mosel vintners brought in highly aromatic frozen grapes

In the Mosel region, among others in Erden (zip code 54492), employees of the Dr. Hermann estate (photo) harvested icewine (sites: Erdener Herrenberg and L├Âsnicher F├Ârsterlay). Frozen grapes could also be brought in in Leiwen (Alexander Loersch winery and Werner winery) and Longuich (Christopher Jung hiliday winery). In addition, vintners in the Mosel-towns Selbach-Oster and Zeltingen as well as W├╝rtzberg/Serrig are so fortunate to process frozen, highly aromatic grapes.

Winemaker in Franken also pleased about successful icewine harvest

Furthermore, the Meinzinger winery in Frickenhausen in the wine-growing region of Franken was also pleased about a successful harvest of the frozen ice wine grapes: At -8 degrees Celsius, ice wine grapes with a must weight of 148 degrees Oechsle - a total of approx. 200 liters - "That is a very rare thing for us," says Philipp Meintzinger. The winery was able to bring in the last ice wine in 2016.

Derek Vinnicombe: EISWEIN also in the Rheingau.... harvested 22 December, a memorable day, the day of solstice, the longest night is over, and cold enough even in these days of climate change. Climate change has also given us too much heat and too much flooding this year. A Riesling EISWEIN born in the Winkeler Gutenberg vineyard of the Allendorf families, not quite close to Bethlehem. The Three Wise Men? Ulrich Allendorf, Josef & Max Sch├Ânleber.

152 estates in Rhineland-Palatinate signed up for ice wine harvest

For this winter, some 152 estates in Rhineland-Palatinate have registered a total area of ​​around 107 hectares for a possible ice wine harvest, as the Chamber of Agriculture announced. In the previous year there were only 93 farms with a total of 72 hectares.

For vintners, icewine harvest is always associated with risk and high physical effort during freezing cold temperatures. In the 2019 vintage, vintners in Rhineland-Palatinate waited in vain for frost. If it is not cold enough, it means a total loss for the winemaker due to the law. For an icewine harvest, the grapes must be frozen through. This requires at least minus seven degrees Celsius for several hours. The overripe grapes are picked and pressed while frozen. Ice wine is particularly sweet because a large part of the water remains in the frozen fruit and the sugar content is very high.

Dear wine friends, wherever you are on this planet, I wish you a wonderful holiday and all the best for the next year - 5 ombiasy wine tours in 2022

Picture: Annette and Christian Schiller at the Christmas Market 2021 in Frankfurt, Germany

Dear wine friends,

Wherever you are on this planet, I wish you a wonderful holiday and all the best for the next year 2022!

This year and the previous year have put a lot of strain on all of us. The unprecedented pandemic put everyone’s life more or less in a turmoil and travel on hold. I hope that each of you is safe and sound and that we all have a positive outlook on the year 2022. Finally there is light on the horizon due to medical research that gives us some tools to better hem in our risk of contracting Covid-19 and to manage the pandemic.

I am planning 5 wine tours in 2022. There will be no tours in the spring. I start in early June, keeping my fingers crossed that the omicron wave will have ceased by then and that low-risk traveling will be possible. 

I did not set prices yet. Inflation is on the rise. My initial contact with the hotels unfortunately proved that fact and gas prices are jumping up which makes transportation costs volatile. I will observe the situation at the start of the year and will publish the tour fees at the end of January.

Attached please find the tour schedule.

I wish you a peaceful last week of the year, and a delightful New Year’s Eve celebration with your family, friends, and loved ones - and most of all, that you and yours stay healthy! 

Very much looking forward to enjoying your company at some of the tours in Europe in 2022!

Best
Annette

Ho, Ho, Ho - German Wine Society (Washington DC Chapter) Christmas Party at the Cosmos Club in Washington DC Downtown, USA/ Germany





Pictures: Ho, Ho, Ho - German Wine Society (Washington DC Chapter) Christmas Party at the Cosmos Club in Washington DC Downtown, USA/ Germany

The 2021 German Wine Society (Washington DC) Christmas Party took place on December 18, 2021 at the Cosmos Club in Washington DC downtow. 35 German wine lovers attended, down from 45 guests at the last Christmas Party. This was due to covid although we had strict safety rules in place. 

Astrid Jakobs de Pádua, Minister Counselor, Food and Agriculture, represented the Germany Embassy in Washington DC.

Cosmos Club

The Cosmos Club, founded in 1878, is a private social club for men and women distinguished in science, literature and the arts, a learned profession or public service. Members come from virtually every profession that has anything to do with scholarship, creative genius or intellectual distinction.

Among its members have been three Presidents, two Vice Presidents, a dozen Supreme Court justices, 36 Nobel Prize winners, 61 Pulitzer Prize winners and 55 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Club offers an impressive array of programs for every member interest: international affairs, science, the arts, and economics—to name a few.

The elegant Clubhouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated as a District of Columbia Landmark.

Invitation

Ho, Ho, Ho, German Wine Society Members and Friends of German Wines, it’s nearly time to hang the stockings and dream of delicious German wine!  Registration is open just one more week for our grand holiday event, and though most places are already reserved, we have several still open.  If you’ve already signed up, that’s great and there’s nothing more you need to do - but if you haven’t registered and would still like to come, please go on on our website or send your check now.  While we had a fun holiday gathering on Zoom last year choosing our own wines and stayed safe during the pandemic, at last we can gather in person again in Washington, D.C. and partake of the same wines together amidst all the elegance of Embassy Row, with the same policies we have used for our other in-person events this past summer and fall.

Pictures: Reception

So, please plan to attend the GWS Holiday paired dinner at the Cosmos Club, Saturday, December 18, 2021 starting at 7 pm, with registration and service of welcoming sekt and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:30 pm.  We are very fortunate to have access to this elegant and festive venue again this year, marking our return after our last event there in December 2019.   This has become possible because the Cosmos Club is now requiring vaccination against covid-19 for all staff, members and guests in the mansion. Proof of vaccination is now mandatory at Cosmos - please remember to bring your document.

The paired dinner includes a variety of eight wines (mainly German, with one Austrian), among them high-pr├Ądikat selections, and a three-course meal preceded by hors d’oeuvres.   In addition, there will be entertainment - holiday piano music, and an opportunity to sing some German and other traditional songs together!   This year, we are offering a choice of four different entrees with different prices, more options than ever before - be sure to register for the one you want, and if there are multiple people on your order, register separately for each different entree choice.

Location:  The address for our holiday dinner is 2021 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008, just a few blocks from Dupont Circle.   Metro is near (Dupont Circle Red Line) and parking is available to the rear of the club.   The stunning venue is, as in past years, the wood-paneled Members Dining Room on the 2nd floor in this landmark building.  Perfect for a special holiday wine event with family and friends!

Verband Deutscher Pr├Ądikatsweing├╝ter (VDP): Theresa Olkus takes over from Hilke Nagel as General Manager, Germany

Picture: Hilke Nagel and Theresa Olkus (Foto: VDP/Peter Bender)

The Verband Deutscher Pr├Ądikatsweing├╝ter (VDP) is the association of about 200 German elite winemakers. Hilke Nagel, who has been heading the association for many years, will step down at the end of 2021 and hand over to Theresa Olkus, the current Deputy Managing Director. Steffen Christman of Weingut Christman in the Pfalz will remain President of the VDP.

Theresa Olkus has a Masters of Art of the University of Hohenheim (2019) in "Kommunikatswissenschaft und Medienforschung"/ Communication Studies and Media Research.


Picture: Theresa Olkus (Photo: Julian Wedel)

The VDP

The VDP is the world’s oldest association of wine estates in the world. In fact, it is the only one of its kind worldwide. No other country has a national organization of the top wine makers of the entire country.

In 1910, four regional wine-growers’ associations joined forces to form the Verband Deutscher Naturweinversteigerer (i.e. estates that sold their “natural” [unchaptalized] wines at auction). These organizations – from the Rheingau and Rheinhessen, founded in 1897 and 1900, respectively, and their counterparts in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer and Pfalz regions, bth founded in 1908 – were the forerunners of today’s VDP. At this time, fine German wines enjoyed a heyday. They were among the most expensive wines, on the tables of imperial houses as well as leading hotels and restaurants.

Throughout the past century, the quality-driven goals and strict standards of the VDP have played no small part in shaping the viticultural and winemaking practices in Germany. With their stringent statutes and their establishment of a German vineyard classification, the 200 members of the VDP have served as role models and justifiably can be viewed as the vanguard of the nation’s producers of top-quality wines.

VDP leitet Generationswechsel ein - Hilke Nagel ├╝bergibt ab 1.1.2022 an Nachfolgerin Theresa Olkus

Seit seiner Gr├╝ndung im Jahr 1910 wird dem Verband Deutscher Pr├Ądikatsweing├╝ter (VDP) eine Vorreiterrolle in der deutschen und internationalen Weinwelt zugeschrieben. 111 Jahre sp├Ąter beweist der Verband einmal mehr, dass dies nicht nur f├╝r den Aufbau strenger Qualit├Ątskriterien und einer starken Marke, sondern auch f├╝r die F├Ârderung des Nachfolge-Generation gilt. F├╝r die Mitglieder des Verbandes geh├Ârt die gleitende ├ťbergabe des Weinguts an den Nachwuchs der Winzerinnen und Winzer seit Jahrzehnten zum nat├╝rlichen Betriebslauf. Gleiches leitet der VDP nun f├╝r seine Bundesgesch├Ąftsstelle ein. Ab dem 1. Januar 2022 ├╝bergibt die langj├Ąhrige Gesch├Ąftsf├╝hrerin und VDP-Frontfrau Hilke Nagel ihre T├Ątigkeit an ihre Nachfolgerin Theresa Olkus.

„Aus unserer eigenen Erfahrung in den Weing├╝tern wissen wir, wie wichtig eine vertrauensvolle ├ťbergabe des Betriebes ist. Als Verband leben wir von einer starken Gemeinschaft und dem Zusammenwirken von neuen Ideen und langj├Ąhrigen Erfahrungen. Hilke Nagel hat mit ihrem unerm├╝dlichen Engagement und ihrer ideenreichen, offenen Pers├Ânlichkeit den VDP dank ihrer wertvollen Arbeit ├╝ber Jahre hinweg gepr├Ągt. Sie hat einen herausragenden Anteil an seinem heutigen Stellenwert und wird uns weiterhin unterst├╝tzen. Mit Theresa Olkus haben wir das gro├če Gl├╝ck eine Nachfolgerin gefunden zu haben, die sich in k├╝rzester Zeit bestens eingearbeitet hat, dabei viele neue Akzente setzt und perfekt zu uns passt”, verk├╝ndet VDP.Pr├Ąsident Steffen Christmann die Neuigkeiten aus dem VDP.
