A new Riesling Fellow
On 29th January our Chairman Hew Blair was honoured to have the title of Riesling Fellow bestowed upon him by Wines of Germany. Only three new fellows were admitted to this very select group, in recognition of a life spent promoting (and loving) German Riesling in all its various forms.
Hew’s first foray into German wine happened in 1972 travelling out to the Rheingau for 18 months work at a winery. Something evidently made quite an impression as 43 years later Hew’s love for Riesling burns as brightly as ever. In the intervening years his dedication to this most noble of grape varieties has seen the Justerinis list bloom into one of the greatest Riesling offerings around.
Today, to mark the occasion, Hew has selected a dream team of his favourite wines from our current stocks. All wines are available for immediate delivery and enjoyable now, or as is Riesling’s particular skill, for many years to come.
