  1. Dear Darren, “16 German winemakers to watch” – and None of them from Franconia. What about the famous Franconian VDP-vintners, who produce wonderful Riesling (and in fact, not less wonderful Silvaner? Please, I’m waiting for the next article: “16 German winemakers to buy”.

    Not only Franken but Rheinhessen as well as notable young Franken wine makers like Andi Weigand and Rhiehessen rising starts like Lisa Bunn and Juliane Eller have all been missed nbnot to mention a whole rnage of new wine guns in Baden, there are a whole lot more than just 15 qwe should be watching as this is a generational up swing for German wines and wine making.

  4. Leigh W Dryden says:

    My apologies as both Lisa and Juliane are here which is great to see, missed these when scrolling through the insight- great to see as these two are personal favourites and we are about to launch both of their wines in Australia in September so I will keep you posted to see how we go with presneting this new and exciting face of German wine. Cheers Leigh

    Hi Darren,
    Great Selection of fantastic very motivated young winemakers. I like the fact that most of them learned their craft from iconic KP Keller. His winery and his dinners are for sure a good place to be as a young winemaker to experience great wine and not only Reisling!
    Good Luck to everybody of them and hope to see a few more of them at Londons Indepedents!
    Best,
