Curso intensivo de vinos alemanes con Tina Heidelberg/Intensive German Wine Course Presented by Tina Heidelberg


Aunque lo nuestro son los vinos de jerez, siempre es bueno aprender sobre otros vinos y esta vez asistimos a un curso intensivo sobre vinos alemanes.  Lo impartió Tina Heidelberg, sumiller y Formadora Homologada del Vino de Jerez.  Recorrimos la historia, las diferentes zonas vitivinícolas, las variedades de uvas, y lo más difícil para algunos de los que estábamos allí fue la clasificación de los vinos de la VDP (Asociación alemana de vinos de calidad).  Catamos vinos blancos, tintos, sekt (equivalente a nuestro cava), vinos secos, semiseco, dulces, etc.. en fin, una cata muy completa y muy interesante, gracias Tina!.

Entre los asistentes varios Sherry Explorers, Kristell, Sabrina, Sofía, Jose y expertos en vinos y sumillers como Paco, Patricia, Juan Carlos y nuevos amigos que esperamos nos visiten pronto.

Even though our usual focus is on Sherry wines, it is always good to learn about other wines.  So, this time, we attended an intensive course on German wines.  It was presented by Tina Heidelberg,  who is a sommelier and a Certified Sherry Wine Educator.  We reviewed the history of German wines, the various wine production zones, the typical grape varieties, and, the most complex part, the classification of  different wines in accordance with the standards set by the VDP (which is the German Association that assigns categories of quality to these wines).  We tasted white wines, red wines, sekt (which are sparkling wines similar to Spanish cavas), dry wines, semi-sec and sweet wines, etc….  In the end, it was a very complete and very interesting wine-tasting adventure.  Thanks, Tina.

Among those in attendance were various Sherry Explorers, like Kristell, Sabrina, Sofía, and Jose.  In addition, there were wine experts and sommeliers like Paco, Patricia, Juan Carlos.  We also made some new friends which we hope will visit us soon.
