What is the new VDP.SEKT.STATUT all about? What goals is the VDP pursuing with the offensive? And what can you expect from a sparkling wine with the VDP.SEKT or VDP.SEKT.PRESTIGE® designation? Not because sparkling wine is a trendy topic, no, German sparkling wine producers - the Krugs and Bollingers set the tone in Europe and played a decisive role in the development of sparkling wines. The VDP.Prädikatsweingüter are continuing this tradition and manifesting the production of the highest quality and handcrafted sparkling wines in their ranks with their VDP.SEKT.STATUT. The VDP.SEKT.STATUT also transfers the high quality standards that VDP winegrowers apply to their wines to the production of sparkling wine. Only sparkling wines that meet the strict quality criteria and pass the appropriate tests - similar to the strict regulations of Champagne - may be awarded the VDP sparkling wine seal. Get to know the VDP.SEKT.STATUT and take part in the exclusive masterclass with Caro Maurer MW.
