Generation Riesling welcomes its 500th member
Schuetz, who in 2009 took over the small, part-time grape-growing business of his father in the Wuerttemberg wine region, is now the 500th member of Generation Riesling. With fresh ideas and the active support of his whole family, the 27-year old has transformed the “Feierabend-Wengerter” (“After-Work Vintners”) operation, which had until then been organized along cooperative lines, into a modern wine estate.
“We are very pleased to welcome Benjamin Schuetz as another excellent ambassador of Generation Riesling”, Monika Reule explained. “No-one represents the modern, relaxed and dynamic Wine Country Germany with more authenticity than the Generation Riesling members”, said the DWI boss.
Generation Riesling will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a large presentation by past and current members for restaurant and wine trade experts in the Palmengarten in Frankfurt on 13 June 2016 (see invitation, pdf)
