The Römerfamilie company – supplier of promotional products – is known for its four “family members” – wellness, lifestyle, drinks and the culinary delights of Römer Präsente. Company founder Jürgen Römer has long passed his entire business on to the next generation in the person of his son Sebastian. However, he still runs the Römerhof winery from which Römerfamilie emerged. Together with his brother Walter, an excellent oenologist, his aim is to produce the best Rieslings.

The Römer brothers are now well on the way to achieving this goal – at one of the most important wine competitions in the world, the “Mundus Vini”, which took place for the 26th time in February of this year. 268 wine experts from 54 countries tasted and rated the wines in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse in Rhineland-Palatinate. Riesling naturally played a major role.

The Römerhof winery had registered four Rieslings of its premium “NECTO” line from 2017 and 2018. All four were awarded gold and the NECTO I (dry) from 2017 was actually rewarded “Great Gold” and was voted the best Riesling. The two NECTO Rieslings from 2017 also competed in the Berlin Wine Trophy where they were also awarded Berlin Gold. Another proof of the great quality of the Moselle Rieslings and the high quality of the winery in Traben-Trarbach. Naturally the brothers Jürgen and Walter Römer are also very happy. “This is a sensational result and gratification for our tireless quest for quality. At the same time, an immense aspiration not to slacken and to constantly reach new levels of quality. But it also shows how fantastic the Riesling grape variety can develop if allowed to mature.”

At the most important wine fair in the world, the Pro Wein in Düsseldorf, the award ceremony was scheduled to take place with a large audience. Unfortunately, like so many other events, it has also fallen victim to the Corona virus. When, where and how the award ceremony will be rescheduled is not yet clear. The two brothers also continue to give Römer Präsente advice on the wine selection for the gift sets. All wines are carefully tasted and selected from a wide choice. Contact: www.roemerwein.de
