Getting behind Grosse Gewächse

German specialists, ABS Wine Agencies and Howard Ripley, on promoting Grosse Gewächse

01 Oct 2014 | By Anne Krebiehl MW

The annual release of the Grosse Gewächse in September is a firm feature in the German wine calendar. Slowly, this important release date is also gaining UK currency. Grosse Gewächse are dry single-vineyard wines produced to a strict quality code by VDP members (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter). The VDP is Germany’s largest and most important grouping of quality producers whose private vineyard classification recognises exceptional, historic single sites as Grosse Lagen.
