In Nuremburg with K&U Hausmesse 2014 – Wein radikal anders

posted on 27 November 2014

Gorgeous, wonderful tasting organised by K&U di Martin Kossler, Dunja Ulbricht  and their team. They’re a modest-sized importer in Nuremburg, very special persons, all of them, and they simply exude that spirit, in their remarkably-warm hospitality and generosity, and in every perfect organizational detail of this event that runs for two days every year. It includes some 70 selected wine producers, hailing from Germany, Austria, France… a very careful selection that ensures that each winery has a distinctive and outstanding wine to offer, but above all unique, representative of its own terroir. The tasting’s participants are wine lovers and wine-knowledgeable private customers, and participation (paid, an only by invitation) was impressive

The location was intriguing–a no-longer-used factory building right in the middle of a permanent exhibition of vintage automobiles. The entire event was lively, and with very high-class catering throughout, plus a final dinner with all the producers. I found it fascinating to be able to taste all those wines–organic, biodynamic, conventional–nor did those labels mean much, with such high-quality, utterly-distinctive wines!

I was delighted to be a K&U selected winery, and I fervently look forward to a lengthy collaboration.

A brief report, with photos of some friends… Oh, I forgot: Nuremburg is beautiful!

We’d like to talk to you a bit about our Riné. Although it has changed over the years, we conceived Cantrina’s white wine--our distinctive blend of Riesling and Chardonnay, and a bit of other white varieties we grow here in our estate vineyards--as one that would evolve and mature with cellaring, offering its best even many years after bottling. We noticed, though, in the few years, that we were often forced to sell Riné too soon, and thus offering our customers a wine that was still inexpressive and therefore not fully appreciated for what it really was.

Profumi di Mosto
We are joining the Profumi di Mosto 2020 edition on October, 11th. Cantrina's wines will be matched with Pietro Freddi's special pizzas, which will be prepared on the spot from his Pizza-Van. This edition will be a bridge between the just-ended summertime and 2021 events. Profumi di Mosto will also host twenty wineries, where rose wines and Valtènesi red wines will be protagonists.
