German Champions The multiple faces of Riesling with Caro Maurer MW & Richard Bampfield MW
German Rieslings are world champions – unique in quality and style. The credit for regaining their outstanding reputation belongs to VDP. VDP is the oldest national association of premium wine estates worldwide, encompassing about 200 German wineries committed to terroir-driven viticulture. Unlike conventional German wine law, VDP has re-established a vineyard classification comparable to the Burgundian approach and based on quality of vineyard site.
