Minerality

Premium Wine Walk Minerality
In dialogue with German wines,
today: Die Ahr und die Saar (Mosel)
Date: Saturday, 30. September 2023
Topic: Was ist Mineralität im Wein? Kann man das schmecken?

Laach, Altenahrer Eck

Be aware: This event will be held in German.

“The wine is so mineral…” Really? What is that actually? Find out on an exciting premium wine hike through the steep slopes of the Mittelahr or Wein-Oberahr.

I will guide you through ancient Riesling vineyards from Altenahr via Reimerzhoven and Laach to Mayschoss and explain the sensory characteristics of Riesling and Pinot Noir. At the same time, you will learn about the latest wine and sensory research, especially on the subject of minerality.

With a bit of luck, we will experience the grape harvest. The fantastic outdoor enjoyment of late spring is rounded off not only by the special wines but also by the flora and fauna with excellent views or distant vistas.

After the slate soils in the steep slopes, we taste local wines of the Ahr in a vertical. Now minerality and terroir differences become very transparent. This wine tasting is truly unique in the Ahr. Under almost scientific conditions, 6 wines from 6 different places were comparably cultivated and vinified.

The price of €169.00 per person includes:

  • Begrüßungssekt am Bahnhof von Altenahr
  • 2 lagenreine Spätburgunder-Premium-Weine*
  • 4 lagenreine Riesling von der Ahr und der Saar*
  • 6er Ortswein-Probe von der Ahr; 6 Weine = je aus einem anderen Weinort/Ahr*
  • 1 mineral water in 0.5 litre bottles; either still or medium
  • Laugengebäck und feine Tartes

* (All wines are wine samples, all sparkling wines except the welcome sparkling wine are sparkling wine samples, in corresponding quantities) Some of the wines that may be tasted during this tour.
