Germany’s vintners offer younew discoveries: During many events in Germany and abroad the members of “Generation Riesling” project the impression of being young, innovative and open-minded. They are representative of a well-educated, internationally oriented and ambitious younger generation of vintners assuming responsibility within the German wine industry.
The German Wine Institute initiated the concept in order to provide younger members of the wine scene– the age limit is 35 years – a national and international platform. It is important to know that this cooperation does not exclude other traditional varieties like Silvaner, Pinot or Lemberger.
