Click on the above link to see the film about Riesling I shot this summer and fall in New York, Berlin and the Rheingau. I may be no Stanley Kubrick, no Quentin Tarantino or Frederico Fellini, but with the help of editor Klaus Lüttmer in Berlin I managed to reate 14 minutes that give an idea of what the global Riesling phenomenon is all about. Particular thanks are due to Paul Grieco of Terroir & Hearth in New York (pictured above) the ex-German wine queen Annika Strebel (don’t worry, nobody will think you were naked), Michigan Riesling star winemaker Sean O’Keefe (invisible, but without that closing shot it would more boring), and the amazing Lez Zeppelin (girlz will be girlz!). By the way, my editor Klaus Lüttmer (sene below) also makes a great Frühburgunder red wine in East Germany’s Saale-Unstrut region, but more about that another time. ENJOY!
