Restaurant Riz in Frankfurt – stilvoll, weinig und lecker!

Welcome to the Riz!

Spontan sind wir am Samstagabend ins Riz eingekehrt, ein Frankfurter Wein-Restaurant fast direkt gegenüber vom Goehtehaus, unweit vom nächsten Wein-Restaurant, der Heimat. Glück hatten wir, dass gerade noch 2 Plätze frei waren in dem geschmackvoll-gemütlichen Lokal im Fifties Look, denn viel Gutes wird erzählt, vor allem seitdem im Sommer letzten Jahres Milan Seidenfaden in der Küche das Kommando übernommen hat. Letzterer ist in Frankfurt kein unbekannter: In mehreren Restaurants dieser Stadt hat er schon gewirkt, der Höhepunkt seines Schaffens war bisher mit Sicherheit das Erkochen eines Michelin-Sterns im Restaurant Francais.

2010 Great Growths presented at Kloster Eberbach – a wild vintage!

Just a day after that VDP wine auction for the Rheingau region, I returned to Kloster Eberbach for the big public presentation of 2010 Great Growth wines of all VDP member estates. Since I missed previous opportunities to taste these wines, I was more than happy to attend this brilliant event.

The 2010 vintage didn’t have an easy start as numerous media already condemned it as a sour (white) wine vintage at a time when harvest wasn’t even fully brought in. And it’s true that for many of the estate’s basic Rieslings, qualities are rather heterogenous. For the Great Growths however, I read more and more opinons that are highly praising this new vintage, even putting it above last year’s great success. Read the rest of this entry »

VDP Jahrgangspräsentation der Regionen Ahr, Nahe und Rheinhessen (Rheingoldhalle Mainz)


Immer wieder gibt es vom VDP diese tollen Jahrgangspräsentationen. Immer wieder ist es schön die Weine von vielen Weingüter direkt vergleichen zu können und mit den Machern ins Gespräch zu kommen. Bei dieser vielversprechenden Präsentation ging es um die 3 Regionen Ahr, Nahe und Rheinhessen und es gab viele gute Weine. Hier nun ein paar von meinen Eindrücken. Abseits meiner Notizen gab es aber natürlich auch noch viele leckeren Weine. Read the rest of this entry »

Storyboard of a Wine Evening


We started with this very well made Rheingau Sekt Edition M by Stefan Breuer. Dry but still lots of Riesling fruit and a rather coarse but refreshing mousseux.

Grosse Gewächse 2006 – Welcome to Riesling Paradise

Not much time to take pictures, everyone was already leaving Paradise at that point…

This really was like a walk through paradise. At the VDP Grosse Gewächse Tour I had the pleasure to attend, I was able to taste some of the most acclaimed Rieslings from Nahe Rheinhessen and Pfalz. Ok technically seen, Rheingau and Mosel which are also big compartments of Riesling Paradise were left out, but I have to admit that it would have been too many wines in the end, and I felt lucky enough with 42 top-estates that were represented.
