(NM) This blogpost is written in English. Why (?), you might ask. Because these words are dedicated to one of the great winemakers of the United States of America. And he is a American native speaker – obviously.
His name is Bob Bertheau. He is running as „Head Winemaker“ at Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville, Washington State. We had our first „business meeting“ (although as a wine blogger, my business differenciates pretty much from his) at the ProWein 2017. For sure, I was well aware of the quality output at Chateau Ste. Michelle, but I did not expect such a cool dude as the mastermind behind the largest winery of the whole state of Washington. As a fun fact, Chateau St. Michelles Estate Riesling is by volume the largest Riesling brand in the world! Putting the amount of produced bottles next to the year-in year-out quality of this wine, this is pretty amazing. Speaking of amazing wines. Next to the Chateau Ste. Michelle classics, like the joint venture with Ernie Loosen Riesling „Eroica“, I also tasted Bobs latest outcomes: The Ethos Reserve Cabernet and Chardonnay, two stunning and very elegant wines and the Tenet Wines „The Pundit Syrah“, a crosser between old world and new world Syrah interpretation. These wines really caught my attention. Please check them out here. Weiterlesen
