German taste

posted on 20 November 2016
I’ve just returned from the annual K&U tasting days in Nuremberg; it is always a delight to be there as a wine producer. Martin, Chistopher, Dunia and their entire staff were fantastic, and there was the usual large group of customer-tasters. The most enjoyable part was being able to exchange opinions on wine with producer-friends from France, Austria and Germany, all in a relaxing context of laughter and enjoyment. On the way back, I stopped in Munich to see Claudia and Patrick, long-time customers of mine. Their news is that this year they moved their restaurant, The Spice Bazaar, from Gräfelfing to the centre of Munich, near the Theatre. The new venue is wonderful—spacious and well-furnished, thanks to the artistic tounch of Claudia, who is also chef, with partner David. The theme is Asian, but minimalist, very classy and similar in spirit to northern Europe. The dishes are utterly delicious and well-spiced, and the wine list, designed by Patrick, is very selective. He is quite professional, but even more, he is truly passionate about wine. Those were wonderful days, just like being on a vacation, especially since I had along with me Elena, a dear friend from childhood.The Spice Bazaar“. Belle giornate, è come essere in vacanza soprattutto quando sono accompagnata dalla mia cara amica di infanzia Elena.

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.

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.
