PSA Rieslingfeier 2019

#1 Post by Robert Dentice » November 28th, 2018, 3:46 am

As in years past I thought I would start a thread on Rieslingfeier 2019 as the tickets sell out fast.

The growers have been posted and tickets go on sale mid-December. Some new ones this year and three Austrian producers.

My favorite wine week of the year!

Was going to make a post until I realized I'd be out of town. Why on a holiday weekend? [soap.gif]

Getting very excited for Rieslingfeier!!

I went back and listened to this interview with Klaus Peter Keller from 2013 when I think he was in NYC for Rieslingfeier.

I hear there are still some tickets available for the Gränd Tasting in the day.

Who is going???

I wonder if anyone has decided to attend because of the list of somms posted on the website?

https://rieslingfeier.com/sommeliers

I mean, does anyone care which somm will be drinking 1/8th of your bottle before the wine hits your table for the gala dinner?

Well they do all donate their time for free and it is a non profit event. I think the purpose is to give them and their respective restaurants some free PR. I have to say of that of all of these La Paulee type wine events this one is by far the best.

Get on a plane and find out :)

I've got tickets to the VIP tasting session. I'm still mulling over the gala dinner. I've been to the dinner once, and it is spectacular. Well worth the gratuitous wine extracted by the sommeliers. :-)

I will see you at the VIP tasting. Just knowing what I am bringing and that both Keller and Egon Müller will be there amongst many other great producers I would say GO to the Gala!

See you all at the VIP tasting.

Will be good to have Klaus Peter Keller and Julian Haart there this year. Sorry not to have the Schaefers and Webers.

We're one week away folks!

Is anyone aware of any offline events or other dinners, tastings, or other unofficial events? I know places like Chambers and Flat-Iron have previously had riesling producers in during this week to pour some of their wines and I've heard of offline dinners being held in previous years.

Let me know if you all are doing anything. Looking forward to optimizing this week.

Flatiron is doing a dinner with Alzinger on Thursday at Loring Place. Convive is planning a dinner with Donnhoff the following Thursday at Manhatta.

I’ll be at the big show on Saturday night. Come say hi if you are there!

Looks like these events are just missing the snow and sleet forecast for late Saturday.

The Gala dinner still has tickets available. Hmmm.

Luckily most, if not all, of the winemakers are in town.

Jochen Beurer is doing an in store tasting at Chambers on Friday. I can't recommend these wines highly enough. Try his reds as well as the whites.

I found it very table-specific.
I went last year and this was NOT my experience. Lots of moving around and trading bottles with other tables. I even managed to taste a bottle Robert brought and his table was far from mine. The food was quite good too. I sat next to Johannes Selbach who told me the food was signicantly better than before (new chef). By the way, sitting with Johannes is a ton of fun.

To be clear, I was referring to my Reboule experience, NOT Rieslingfeier.

I’m likely not attending the dinner due to the wishes of my better half anyway [snort.gif]

Your dinner last night looked fabulous. How were the MCs and Alzingers? (I have bottles of three of those MCs still.)

Everything show well. The 89 Auslese Scheurebe was stunning. The 95 Alzinger from a tough year was also great I forgot to note the vineyard. Austrian wines just age so well.

Egon Muller at Ko on deck for tonight!!!

I am very excited! The theme is on / off vintages comparisons with age. Obviously all Egon Muller wines going back to at least the 80s and maybe older.

Thread bump! Since I didn't attend this year, notes on the morning tasting, first impressions of 2017 vintage would be appreciated, thanks. I have bought the Selbach Ur-Alte Reben '17, but haven't opened any.

I will try to put some notes together. I visited Germany this and like 2017 a lot and this was confirmed at the tasting, especially dry wines.

The 2017 wines from Austria blew me away especially Alzinger.

Egon Muller mentioned this weekend that broadly speaking, 2015 is likely the best (or right at the top) modern-era vintage and 2017 is pretty close behind. He mentioned that when declaring the great vintages however, it is difficult to be decisive until about 15-20 ish years because they do need some time. As an aside, he also recommended drinking 2016 early as they are open and should remain so.

The 2017’s I had were impressive but then again the 2017 Keller Pettenthal Auction was there and it blew my mind with both an expressive nose and complexity unlike most young wines... so my data got skewed.

As you know, 2017 was a small crop so I think it is safe to say go get ‘em if you want ‘em.
