“Germany`s top dry wines are perhaps the biggest single group of quality wines under-appreciated in Britain.”
“At a London tasting presented by World Wine Agencies (Bath) Ltd the four von Buhl GG wines of 2010 were shown with the 2009 equivalents, an exciting and total contrast.”
“What also emerged from this Harrods tasting of von Buhl was the exciting quality of the sweet Riesling wines from this 2010 vintage.”
“Extraordinary, a privilege to taste.”

We are happy to announce the great news that Silverado Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 has once again been awarded 4 stars & highly recommended by Decanter (February 2011 edition) scoring higher than some of their much more expensive and well known neighbours such as Schafer, Far Niente and Cakebread!
Many thanks once again to Jancis Robinson, who listed a Von Buhl wine for the second time in this series, which features her top choice of wines for 2010.
This time was the turn of our Forster Ungeheuer Riesling Auslese 2009, described by Jancis as “a particularly open young Auslese that is truly expressive of its provenance: grapefruit syrup plus terroir and great zest”. Read more
World Wine Agencies present a Winery from
Washington State’s Hall of Winemaking Fame
This year Bill Powers was the latest winemaker to be crowned by peers as “2010 Legend of Washington Wine”. The award, which is judged on contribution to historical and lasting significance to the community and wine industry, is judged by an industry-based committee, with nominations in from both colleagues in the winemaking industry and the public alike. This accolade follows Bill’s recent “lifetime achievement” award for his work on sustainable and organic farming.
We are particularly proud about this award, which is judged by winemakers and vinegrowers from the Mendoza region. This means that La Chamiza Martin Alsina 2007 was chosen as the best Mendoza Malbec by our own winemaking peers.
Mr Robert Parker awarded the 2007 Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon 92 Points recently and described it as “a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power”. This times nicely with our release of limited edition magnums, which will be available exclusively to World Wine Agencies’ customers from this month onwards.
