Germany has a long and renowned wine-making tradition that goes back to the Roman era. 

At court, the aristocracy and the bourgeoisie would drink German Riesling and it was observed that if you drank a bottle of ‘Hoch’ (Rheingau wine from Hochheim), you didn’t have to see the doctor. 

And recently, at the English auction houses Sotheby’s and Christie’s, Liebfraumilch wine outperformed the Premier Cru Bordeaux.

Popular among connoisseurs
Since the 1960s, when the world reconciled with Germany after the two world wars, its wine has been handed another chance to play a significant role in the world markets. 

Over the past 50 years, the quality of German wine has distinctly improved and the country’s wines are now considered among world’s best.

The demand for German wines has also increased dramatically and is enjoyed by connoisseurs in the best restaurants worldwide.

A perfect match for Asian
The recent culinary trends inspired by non-European cuisines have turned German Riesling into a hit. 

Asian food complements a good Riesling so well you can almost hear its urging – the two are a perfect match on any dining table.

Whether it is the SouthEast Asian country’s spicy food or light vegetable meals, Riesling goes well with both. 

And when it is produced by the best vintners, it is also one of the wines with the longest longetivity.
