The Annual Wines of Germany trade tasting will take place on Tuesday 9th May, from 11am until 5pm at The Hospital Club, London’s top private member’s club for the creative industries.

Following the success of 2015’s G Major and more recently 2016’s G Sharp, this year’s tasting will be called G String, to continue with the music theme (of course). The theme will prevail throughout the event to bring to life the immersive tasting which will be filled to the brim with quirky focus areas, sommelier competitions, expert led seminars, a range of varieties and styles and not forgetting the first chance to taste the Wines of Germany Top 50 2017. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to sample a concise collection of wines from some Germany’s most outstanding producers.

“The Other Grapes of Germany” with Anne Krebiehl MW – Hosted by the VDP
Come and explore Germany's varietal diversity with us: while Riesling and Pinot Noir hold sway, there is a lot more to Germany's 13 wine regions: join us for Großes Gewächs Silvaner, Weissburgunder, Grauburgunder, Lemberger and last but certainly not least Pinot Noir's intriguing sibling Frühburgunder. Learn about the nuanced flavours, regional provenance and supreme single-vineyard expressions of these 'other' German grapes. Let us help you to paint a far more colourful picture of German wine.

Seminar 2 1pm – 2pm

“German wines – coolest wines on earth, but where do we place them on our lists?” with Richard Siddle and guest speakers
