05/10/2017

Five key members of the UK wine trade met at 'The Sampler' in South Kensington to seek out this year’s "Wines of Germany Top 50", whittling down hundreds of entries.


A panel of experts tasted through each wine blind, selecting the top wines over a number of different categories. Find the results in the april issue of Harper's wine magazine (Top50 pdf download).

This year’s panel includes:

Roger Jones (Owner, Harrow at Little Bedwyn),
James Comyn (Trade Sales Director, Howard Ripley),
Christina Schneider (Sommelier, Somsaa Restaurant),
Jane Parkinson (Freelance wine writer and TV personality),
Beth Willard (Buyer, Direct Wines).

Top 50 aims to place the best Wines of Germany in front of UK consumers and members of the trade and press inspiring the nation to discover what Germany has to offer today. The competition allows wineries from all over Germany, including those who are currently still seeking UK representation, to enter their wines.
