The 31st podcast episode centers the esteemed Künster Winery from the Rheingau wine region of Germany. Gunter Künstler lavishly showed me a line of his Pinot Noirs from 1999 till the barrel sample of 2019. It was one in a lifetime experience, and proved to me the ageability and complexity of the Rheingau Pinot Noirs. You can also hear the origin history of this elegant grape variety in Rheingau and how it started in Assmanshausen. Mr. Künstler has also revealed his favourite wines and the rainbow effect, discussed different wine glasses, told his opinion about biodynamics and copper usage, and shared some tips on how wineries could prepare for climate change. Gunter Künstler is a well of knowledge with German precision and professionalism. It’s not only a memorable chat but a valuable course for any wine lovers as well.
