Wine     Tasting (walk around)     Shopping     Networking    

Andreas is back in town and everyone is SO excited!
A lot of you have met him before, and if you haven’t you know you want to! We will be tasting some brand new wines
from Andreas, as well as new vintages of his classics we all love! Situated vineyards from Mosel and Pfalz Germany, Bender wines are known for outstanding quality. Compelling balance of fruit and acidity. In his work philosophy Bender combines high quality, a sense of good soils and premium grapes, gentle cellar work, old vineyard crafts and new, modern “wine-thinking.”

In his family home, he pulls out wines that he “made for myself” just to see what he could produce. As we taste a 12-year-old late harvest, he recalls some ridiculed him. This is not happening anymore as within a very short period of time he has established himself as one of the most talented and capable “mavericks” of the German wine world. His wines grace the table of Chancellor Angela Merkel, whenever she wants to show her international guests the superb quality German artisanal producers can offer, and they can also be found in Lufthansa’s business class service as well as Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants.
