Cellar In a Snap - Germany




Zoom Meeting
Montreal, Québec

German wines are truly special. Alex Pflüger and Gerd Stepp, our two star winemakers from the Pfalz region, will join us online to talk about their exceptional wines and their work.

Alex Pflüger
farms 30 hectares of vines in and around Bad Dürkheim in the Pfalz region. His father was a pioneer of organic farming in Germany. Alex has gone a step further. Driven by a desire to make wines in harmony with nature, he practices biodynamic viticulture and is Demeter certified.

Gerd Stepp was raised in the family vineyard in Pfalz spending his childhood helping his parents work the vines and pick grapes at harvest time. No wonder he grew up to become a winemaker. Before taking over the reins of the family winery, Gerd made wines in many places around the world – some of them quite unusual such as Namibia and Zimbabwe – and he continues to make wine each year in Argentina.

Les vins allemands sont vraiment spéciaux. Alex Pflüger et Gerd Stepp, nos deux vignerons vedettes de la région du Palatinat nous rejoindront en ligne pour parler de leurs vins exceptionnels et de leur travail.

Alex Pflüger exploite 30 hectares de vignes à Bad Dürkheim et dans ses environs, dans le Palatinat. Son père était un pionnier de l’agriculture biologique en Allemagne. Alex a décidé d’en faire encore plus. Animé par le désir de produire des vins en harmonie avec la nature, il pratique la viticulture biodynamique et détient une certification Demeter.

Gerd Stepp a grandi dans le vignoble familial dans le Palatinat et a passé son enfance à aider ses parents à cultiver les vignes et à cueillir les raisins lors des vendanges. Pas étonnant alors qu’il soit devenu vigneron. Avant de reprendre l’exploitation viticole familiale, Gerd a produit des vins dans de nombreuses régions du monde, dont certaines assez inhabituelles comme la Namibie et le Zimbabwe, et il continue à produire du vin chaque année en Argentine.
