Deutsches Weininstitut präsentiert Pinot Trio auf der ProWein 2011

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 13:22

Das Deutsche Weininstitut (DWI) wird auf der ProWein 2011 in Düsseldorf unter dem Motto ?Burgunder Hoch Drei – The Pinot Trio? die drei wichtigsten Burgundersorten in den Mittelpunkt seiner Präsentation stellen: Spätburgunder, Grau- und Weißburgunder. Dieses Trio gewinnt sowohl im eigenen Land als auch international zunehmend an Popularität.

Außerdem zählt Deutschland zu den wichtigsten Erzeugerländern dieser Rebsorten weltweit. Mit rund 20.000 Hektar machen sie zusammengenommen ein Fünftel der hiesigen Rebfläche aus.

Dank der unterschiedlichen Terroirs in den 13 deutschen Anbaugebieten erreichen diese Sorten hierzulande eine einzigartige Vielfalt. Davon können sich die Fachbesucher am DWI-Stand auf der ProWein (4G86) überzeugen, wo eine repräsentative Auswahl des Burgunder-Trios zur freien Verkostung bereit steht.

Focus – Georgia targets wine quality to move beyond Russia

Georgias wine producers have upped their quality game in the last four years
Georgia’s wine producers have upped their quality game in the last four years

An over-reliance on one market is always a danger. Georgia’s wine producers found this out only too well, when Russia closed its doors to Georgian wine in 2006. Since then, however, the country has looked to expand wine exports past its eastern neighbour. What was initially a problem has become an opportunity, as Mark Godfrey reports.

Georgia’s wine industry took every opportunity to bask in the limelight earlier this year, when the 2010 International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) Congress was staged in the country’s capital Tbilisi. Opening the congress, held back in June, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili even took the opportunity to describe the country’s win as „freedom wine“, boasting that Russia’s four-year ban on Georgian wine has only improved its quality. Georgian wine companies, he said, had been forced to export to more selective markets. Continue reading „Focus – Georgia targets wine quality to move beyond Russia“

US: Wine exports claw back lost ground

US wine exports recover value, volumes creep up
US wine exports recover value, volumes creep up

The value of US wine exports has rebounded strongly in the first nine months of 2010, according to new figures from the California Wine Institute.

Exports of US-made wine for the nine months to the end of September rose by 25% on the same period of last year, to US$807.7m, said the Wine Institute at the end of last week. The figure shows that exports continued to rebound strongly in the third quarter of 2010 and it puts the sector on-track to recover from a 9.5% drop in the value of exports in 2009.

However, it is unclear how much of the rebound has been driven by the weak US dollar. Export volumes increased at a slower pace for the nine months, up by just 3% to 323m litres, indicating that the sector has yet to make up all of the ground lost in the global economic downturn.

Exports rose by 19% in value to EUR6.26bn (US$8.6bn) and by 16.5% in volume on the same period of last year. “The recovery has been led by spirits, particularly Cognac, vodka and gin, even though wines are showing a solid recovery too,” a spokesman for FEVS told just-drinks today (22 November).
In the same period of 2009, exports fell by 11% in volume and 24% in value versus 2008.

“Initial feedback from the US, our biggest export market, would appear to indicate that consumers remain prudent in their drinks purchases, to a backdrop of continued economic uncertainty,” said the spokesperson.
