German Wine Queen Visit

German Wine Queens and Princesses are global ambassadors of German wine. Each year, the thirteen Germany wine regions elect their own regional wine queens, who will then compete for the title ‘German Wine Queen’ and ‘German Wine Princess’  the following year. This year, the 72nd German Wine Queen is Eva Lanzerath from Ahr.

德國葡萄酒皇后及公主是德國葡萄酒的全球親善大使。德國的13個葡萄酒產區每年均挑選葡萄酒產區皇后,當他們卸任後,這13位產區皇后便會角逐德國葡萄酒皇后及公主名銜,代表德國到世界各地推廣葡萄酒。今年第72屆德國葡萄酒皇后是來自 Ahr 的 Eva Lanzerath。 

German Wine & Asparagus

White asparagus is a German delicacy and the season is from mid-April to St John’s Day on 24th June. Elegant German wines harmonise perfectly with the delicate aroma of white asparagus. Check out the mouth-watering asparagus recipes here.

German Wine Regions

Germany has 13 wine growing regions, 11 of which are in the southwest corner of the country while the other two are located in former East Germany. Most vineyards are situated along river banks and on hill slopes. All wine regions offer breath-taking landscapes, history, wine culture, hospitality and enjoyment, ideal as tourist destinations.

德國有13個葡萄酒產區,11個座落德國西南部,另外兩個位於前東德。 大多數葡萄園沿河或在山坡種植。所有葡萄酒產區都有嘆為觀止的風景、歷史、葡萄酒文化、款待和娛樂,是理想的旅遊目的地。

 

German wine x Asian cuisines

Asian cuisines are best matched with wines with moderate alcohol levels, soft tannins, crisp acidity and the right amount of residual sugar, all essential characteristics to balance the acidity, sweetness, umami and mix of spices in Asian dishes. Happily, this means that almost every kind of German wine can pair well with Asian cuisines. This perfect pairing is made possible thanks in part to the elegance and freshness of these cool-climate wines.

搭配亞洲料理,最適合的葡萄酒是適中酒精度,柔和單寧,清爽酸度,及適量殘糖。這才能與亞洲料理裡的酸、甜、咸鮮、辣等口味完美和諧配合。德國葡萄酒在清涼氣候種植, 酒體清新優雅是配搭亞洲料理的理想葡萄酒。
