Prost is a new project by Importer, The German Wine Collection. Prost, the German word for Cheers, is sourced from respected growers highlighting a representation of location, origin character, and with sustainability in mind. Prost features a feinherb style Riesling from the Mosel, Dry Riesling from Rheinhessen, and Pinot Noir from the Pfalz. Wine for every occasion, but mainly to share and “Prost” with friends and family.
This sunny and relatively dry region served for many years as a German tourist mecca and was associated with low cost, cheerful wines. But since the 1980s, it has gained a reputation as one of Germany’s more innovative regions, which has led to increased international demand.
Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
