As every year, we released a "Vade-Mecum" with detailed tasting notes and all relevant information to this upcoming Auction on Sep 15. Here some further information.
The Bernkasteler Ring has been holding an annual Auction almost every year since its creation in 1899.
At these auction events, member Estates offer some of their finest casks of wine on sale. Except for some mature rarities, auction wines are different from the ones sold via regular channels. These are typically made from particularly privileged parts of a vineyard, from very old vines or from particularly ruthless grape selections.
Auction wines often form a pinnacle of Mosel Riesling. Most of our greatest Mosel wine memories have nearly all come from auction wines (for those Estates that are members).
You can learn more about these Auctions, auction wines and how to participate in this Introduction to the Annual Trier Wine Auctions.
The 2016 edition of the Bernkasteler Ring Auction will take place on September 15, 2016. At this occasion, member Estates will offer some special bottlings of dry Riesling, off-dry Riesling as well as Kabinett, Spätlese and Auslese from the great 2015 vintage.
In addition, a whole series of makers will bring mature Riesling from the 2000s and 1990s at this year’s Auction. This will include some rarities such as the great 2001er Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doktorberg TBA.
Ever since we started, we have been publishing a detailed “Vade-Mecum" to the Bernkasteler Ring Auction with detailed tasting notes of the wines on offer as well as all relevant information for attending and / or bidding ahead of the Auction.
