We broke new ground with the PiWi tasting last year - at the suggestion of our Swiss Falstaff colleagues Benjamin Herzog and Dominik Vombach. "There's an incredible amount going on there," said the two of them at last year's editorial meeting when they announced that they would be holding such a competition in Switzerland. Thanks to the success of the PiWi tasting last year, our ambition was awakened again this year: Because we too are getting more and better wines from Cabernet blanc, Souvignier gris and Regent on the table. And of course those with completely different names and sometimes even with breed numbers. Time to take stock!

Are called dry wines from any fungus-resistant varieties (white, rosé, red) and all currently available vintages. Cuvées between PiWis and European varieties are permitted if the PiWi share in the cuvée is at least 75 percent. Wines from all types of aging, from stainless steel to classic wooden barrels to half-pieces, tonneau and barriques, are tasted and assessed at both trophies. Likewise, mash fermentations.

We'll talk about the results of the Trophy and the winners in the magazine 5/2021 report from Falstaff Germany (publication date: 14 July 2021). As usual, all results will also be integrated into the freely accessible wine database www.falstaff.com.
