True masterpieces on the podium

The winners of the world`s biggest Riesling competition have been chosen. Almost 2,400 Rieslings from 14 countrys, three continents and a total of 27 wine-growing regions were tasted and rated at this year`s Best of Riesling competition by a jury of more than 100 experts. The competition is held under the patronage of the Rhineland-Palatinate`s ministry for wine-growing (Weinbauministerium) and has cemented its position as the world`s greatest international Riesling competition in an impressive way.

`Rieslings from all over the world showcased their full potential at Best of Riesling. We are really delighted that so many wineries from all over the world once again submitted their best wines to the competition  this year and gave us the opportunity to taste and rate them. The results once again testify, to the fact that there is a large number of wine growers in Germany and worldwide who have perfected the art of creating true masterpieces from the Riesling grape variety`, summarises Christoph Meininger, publisher and competition organiser.

The winners and the top 100 wines in this year`s competition are featured in the July issue of Meiningers Weinwelt. All prize-winning Rieslings can now be found on MEININGER ONLINE at
