KARL MARX HELPS !
We support the help, offered by the German Wine Institute (DWI) to the wine maker, who are facing the complete destruction of their vineyards and now struggling for their livelihoods.
Every donation helps to overcome the aftermath of this flood disaster.
So my wife June and me decided to open our private wine treasure chamber
and we offer our last 72 bottle from the 2018 Riesling, Late Harvest, Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr/Moselle. This vintage was strictly limited to 1.500 bottles.
The location “Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr” is one of the worldwide best known site for famous Rieslings. Karl Marx in his London exile, Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson, American President, enjoyed the wine from this location.
From every bottle you buy, we donate 50HK$/bottle direct to the charity account of the DWI in Germany.

The history: Karl Marx (1818-1883), born in the Moselle region, was a vintner, philosopher, socialist revolutionary and despite his socialist ideas, a gourmet and Riesling lover.
