HAMMERWEIN 2018 from the Winegrower of the Year

For the fifth time in the manor house: the choice of HAMMERWEIN
For the fifth time in the manor house: the choice of HAMMERWEIN

Every year in spring the Kurtz Ersa HAMMERWEIN is awarded. In 2018 there was a small anniversary to celebrate – the event in the “Schwarzer Bock” took place for the fifth time. As a prelude, Museum Director Viktoria Rawinski reported “On the construction and expansion of the iron hammer – a brief excursion into the forge´s beginnings in criminal history”. Afterwards Kristin Langmann, Franconian Wine Queen 2016, told about her reign as wine ambassador. Few would have suspected that their office took them to Austria and France – and even to Japan, China and South Korea. At the wine tasting afterwards, the Uffenheim woman proved her extensive knowledge of Franconian wines: with expert opinions on the six nominated wines and the corresponding menu, she gave an entertaining tour of the event and, after evaluating the voting results, announced the winner and thus Kurtz Ersa HAMMERWEIN 2018: 2016 Escherndorfer Lump, Scheurebe, late harvest. That this choice proves good taste is also proven by the award of the Escherndorf winery (Horst and Sandra Sauer) by Gault & Millau as “Winemaker of the Year 2018”. Cheers!
