The Times: German wines are making a comeback
On page two of the december-9th-issue, consumer affairs correspondent Andrew Ellson describes how German wine sales are going "from strength to strength" in the UK.
Soaring sales in upmarket establishments
„German vineyards have established a reputation among connoisseurs and sommeliers for quality, with their wines ageing so well and offering good value“, Ellson states and gives reason for his observation: „At Justerini & Brooks, Germany is the fastest-growing wine region, and as well as this, Marks & Spencer has seen sales of its Palataia Pinot Noir rise 75% year-on-year while sales of its Mineralstein Riesling have doubled over the same period“.
