The week in pictures


Wines of Germany also hosted its annual GSharp trade tasting this week at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden. The event showcased 200 wines from more than 10 German regions, highlighting once again the remarkably the high quality of Germany’s wine output.


Visitors had the chance to taste the Top 50 Wines of Germany 2016 and meet 25 of Germany’s most dynamic winemakers. An ‘RnP’ bar also provided samples of some of the UK’s favourite German Reislings and Pinot Noir.

There was even a DJ…


A highlight of the GSharp event was the ‘GSharpen the Senses’ seminar, hosted by philosopher and taste expert Professor Barry C Smith and German wine expert Ann Krebiehl MW.

As well as giving attendees the chance to try some excellent German wines (Shelter Baden Pinot Noir 2013; Lubentiushof Gäns Mosel Kabinett Riesling 2014 and Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese Riesling 2009 were standouts), the seminar discussed topics such as the importance of the trigeminal nerve in sparkling wine tasting and the effect of listening to Tubular Bells on the perception of a wine’s acidity.
