Best Wine Competition in Germany

Wein-Plus Magazine in Competition for wine by the glass writes that wine competition is underway in Germany. Go there for info in English about the Mosel region competition.

For more information in German (only), see also derbesteschoppen.de, which has divided Germany into the various wine regions for purposes of the competition, not just the Mosel region, but also including Mittelrhein, Rheinhessen, and Pfalz. The Ahr and Pfalz are pictured on the map but not currently clickable.

Wine Connoisseurs Around the World: Please Write to the German Chancellor Now to Tell Her The Politicians Have Gone Too Far with the Planned Monstrous Mosel Bridge

Wine pope Hugh Johnson wrote last year at Decanter.com about the planned monstrous Mosel Bridge to run through the middle of one of the world's greatest wine-growing regions, calling it "a bridge gone too far".

See The Mosel: A bridge too far .

Johnson recommends
that all lovers of wine around the world write to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel to tell her that this planned bridge is a big mistake:
"Every wine lover should stand up and protest. If you agree with me, contact the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel (write to her at angela.merkel@cdu.de), and open a bottle of Urziger, Graacher, Wehlener… you choose."
