Matthew Jukes reviews Von Buhl Riesling Gross Gewachs 2013

Tuesday, 30 September, 2014 by  

Many thanks to Matthew Jukes who, once again, has written a stunning review on the new release Gross Gewachs from our beloved Reichsrat Von Buhl.  In his words;  “All of these wines look stunning already because of their incredible balance, but clearly they will settle and mature beautifully at different paces over the next two to ten years.”  Couldn’t agree more Matthew!  To read the full review, please follow the link to Matthew’s website:

Think GREEN? Think California!!

Wednesday, 28 May, 2014 by  

We are delighted to announce that California State won the Generic Sustainability Award from The Drinks Business for the second year running! 

The Golden State beat off stiff competition from main wine producing regions in the World including New Zealand and Chile, for instance – both very proud of their progress in this field. But it was the breadth and depth of implementation of sustainable practices and the adoption of nature-friendly philosophies which make California’s approach stand out from the crowd.

 

Congratulations to everyone involved.

Matthew Jukes Recommends Von Buhl 2012 Riesling QbA

Wednesday, 30 April, 2014 by  

Many thanks to Matthew Jukes, who once again wrote a beautiful review for a Von Buhl wine: “Von Buhl makes scintillating wines and this dry Riesling shows the magical properties of this awe-inspiring grape off to a tee.  With pinpoint accurate citrus fruit you need to rustle up the Sesame crusted Salmon, Prawn and orange stir fry and marvel at the synergy of this food and wine combination.” Mail on Sunday, 2014.

To find out more about these gorgeous wines, come and meet the Von Buhl team at our LWTF Stand A34 June 2nd – 4th 2014.
