Winery of the Year 2012 – The German Champions

In the last week of September three of my favourite German wineries were honoured by the Wine & Spirits Magazine, and included in the top 100 list of the best wineries of the world in 2012.

The three wineries are the following:

1. Dr. Loosen, Bernkastel, Mosel
The winery has been in the Loosen family for more than 200 years. Ernst Loosen took over in 1988, and, as they say, the rest is history. Dr. Loosen is maybe one of the best known German vintners in the international wine scene. I was so happy when Barrique, my local wine shop in Healesville, Victoria was carrying Dr. Loosen wines.

Address:
Winery Dr. Loosen,
St. Johannishof
54470 Bernkastel, Mosel

2. C. von Schubert, Mertesdorf, Ruwer, Mosel
This winery has also a long tradition. The “Grünhaus”, as the estate is also known, was already mentioned in ancient documents in 966 when it belonged to the Benedictine monastery of Saint Maximin in Trier.

Carl von Schubert, the current owner-operator, belongs to the fifth generation of the von Schubert family. The estate produces outstanding wines and was awarded many national and international prices. I tasted some of the Maximin Grünhäuser 2011 vintage dry Riesling wines during our summer vacation

3. Robert Weil, Kiedrich, Rheingau
The winery was set-up in 1875. The founder was the university professor Robert Weil who taught German at the Sorbonne in Paris. The Franco-Prussian war of 1870/71 forced him to return to his native Germany. He settled down in Kiedrich, Rheingau and extended his vineyards and laid the foundation for today’s estate. In 2010 I found some bottles of the Robert Weil 2008 vintage in a Bangkok wine shop. Delicious.

  1. This design is steller! You obviously know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you
    had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  2. Again, in shops and showrooms, there always remains a danger for robbery even in broad daylight so the installation of covert devices will help you to get video footage which will help to catch the culprits and making your loss minimum.These devices also serve as surveillance cameras in big hotels, hospitals etc has many rooms in it without anyones prior knowledge and this will help you to know your staff better and improve your companys quality of service by getting rid of lazy staff members. So you need to implement procedures to follow up on complaints and make sure that the nuts and bolts set out in the DMCA, and in any trademark compliance plan you devise, are followed.By no means is this an exhaustive list of how to do due diligence review of a company’s financial documents. There are shoes for women that are meant for walking or strolling. I am thinking of buying this stock for my own portfolio and letting it sit for a few years as this brand is transformed back to its previous glory.Coe will be responsible for sales promotion, consumer advertising, store and graphic design, market research and direct marketing.
