Down to Earth Wines - GERMANY! (Huge list! Donors get free shipping!)

#1 Post by Todd F r e n c h » January 27th, 2013, 8:28 am

Robert Panzer of Down To Earth Wines has a gigantic list for us. The Donors may have snagged some of the early deals, so inventory might be limited, as this was one of the available offers for early ordering.

What are the best ways to start BerserkerDay with early am posting (early for Pacific time, folks, particularly when you were up until 2 am drinking and dancing [drinkers.gif] ? Coffee...bubbles...and RIESLING! The breakfast trio, right freakin' there, baby.


With any orders or questions, feel free to PM Robert Panzer; I will respond as quickly as possible. I can also be reached on my cell: (302)753-7553.

FREE SHIPPING ON MIX AND MATCH 12BTL CASES FOR DONORS. (admin note: if you can't fill a case, 1) you are lame, and 2) wait for the other offers he's putting up, you'll see there is NO problem putting a case together, trust me - likely several)

Or his cell is posted.

'11 is about the most immediately drinkable (read as quaffable) vintage in memory. All of mine will likely disappear in short order.

I also received mine today. Incredible service, indeed, not to mention the selection and prices. Yeah, I'll be doing business with Panzer again. [cheers.gif]

Did you guys get a tracking number at all? I requested one a couple of times but guessing either it's not available or Rob is just too busy ;)

Mine was at the house waiting for me today. Exceptional packing job and bottles look awesome. Will be very hard to keep my hands of the GGs.

I got a tracking # when I asked for it. Then again again, I bought some good Eyetalian wine and not just German. [stirthepothal.gif]

I asked Robert Panzer to put together a case of wines of his choosing. I only gave him very general guidelines...mix of Trocken, Spatlesen and GG from non-mainstream producers.

Every bleeping wine has been fantastic and interesting.

I recommend you have Robert "take you for a tour". champagne.gif

I did the same, only I'm not a baller, so I bought only a half case.

I recently asked Rob for a sampler of 6 to introduce me to the varietal - turns out I prefer Trocken. If he offers the 2011 Wagner-Stempel Siefersheimer Riesling Vom Porphyr Trocken again, I recommend it! Here's my note from CT:

7/29/2013 - I wrote: (Edit)

I think this is bottle 4 from a mixed riesling purchase that I ordered from Down to Earth wines. The previous wines have all been solid but I was starting to think Riesling is just not for me. Then Ann pulled this bottle out tonight and poured it for me blind. The wine had a good chill on it and despite the cool temp is pretty expressive. Aromas of strong citrus and minerality. On the palate, intense lemon citrus, apricot, tangerine, stoney minerals, some salinity and mouth watering acidity. Delicious. We killed the bottle and wanted more. Hands down the best Riesling we've had. Ok, we've probably only had a couple dozen before but this was excellent.
