Hear @elenapanta's story in her own words on the latest episode of @leviopenswine's podcast, I'll Drink to That.

2013 German Vintage Report  By Evan Spingarn, German Brand Manager at DBW I just attended the VDP Mainzer Weinborse (the annual tasting in Mainz, Germany of the top 200 growers in the country) and made a few key visits to winemakers in the Rheingau, Rheinhessen and Nahe.
