PIWI - wines on the red carpet: 189 winemakers and 443 wines in the spotlight at PIWI Wine Award

Freiburg (Breisgau) / Großräschen (Lausitz), November 2021 -

The country needs new vines, but how do they taste and what is the quality? The young association PIWI Germany e. V. had not only called on its members, but also on all PIWI winegrowers in Germany to participate in the international PIWI wine award, known as the PIWI Wine Award since 2021.

With 170 award-winning wines, Germany is the most strongly represented wine country at the autumn tasting 2021. The variety of flavors at PIWIs is great and arouses curiosity about the 2020 vintage of the very different wine-growing regions of Germany from south to north, from west to east. Was evaluated after PAR®-System (*). The medals large gold, gold or silver in connection with the points is on the one hand a valuable orientation for the consumer. After all, he can draw conclusions about the quality of the new varieties, which are mostly unknown to him, by evaluating them. The knowledge of wine consumers regarding the "quality pyramid" is not always applicable to PIWI wines, especially for wines from new vineyards that are not located in one of the 13 specific wine-growing areas, the term quality wine may not be labeled and there are also no regional wine awards.

Fungal-resistant grape varieties (PIWI grape varieties) in the extreme downy mildew year 2021

19.08.2021

Im Rahmen des Projektes VITIFIT lud die Naturland Fachberatung gemeinsam mit Weingütern zu drei Infoveranstaltungen zum Thema „Welche Leistungsfähigkeit haben pilzwiderstandsfähige Rebsorten (PIWI-Rebsorten) im Extremjahr 2021“ ein. Die Infoveranstaltungen richteten sich an interessierte Winzer*innen in der jeweiligen Region. Die erste Infoveranstaltung fand beim Weingut Roth im fränkischen Anbaugebiet statt, gefolgt von einer zweiten Veranstaltung beim Weingut Seck in Rheinhessen. Abgeschlossen wurde die Veranstaltungsreihe im Weingut Andreas Dilger direkt in Freiburg. Die Veranstaltungsorte wurden bewusst in verschiedene Anbauregionen gelegt, um einerseits die aktuelle Situation bzgl. der Peronospora-Infektionsentwicklung in den jeweiligen Anbauregionen direkt in Rebanlagen anschauen zu können und andererseits möglichst vielen Winzer*innen in unterschiedlichen Regionen die Möglichkeit zur Teilnahme anzubieten.

Priener Weinberg: newly planted and blessed

The fruit and horticultural association Prien and the surrounding area has its own vineyard again.
... Christian Steinbichler, who, together with Gisela Wüstinger and Markus Pfeuffer, took over the main organization of the new planting, reminded us that the harvests in the previous vineyard years have been completely different. “The first planting was done with the intensive varieties Silvaner
and Müller-Thurgau, which also meant a high level of pesticide use. This time we are going a different way with the varieties Johanniter, Solaris and Bianca (white) as well as Nero (red) and other varieties. We selected these fungus-resistant varieties in close cooperation with experts and with the PIWI International association ”.

Falstaff - PIWI Trophy 2021 - Results

First PIWI vineyard in Chiemgau

ChristianEingießen-Sylvia-Christian GesamtansichtGartenbauverein von Prien am Chiemsee pflanzt PIWI in St. Salvator

Auf dem Weinberg in St. Salvator sprießen seit einigen Wochen rund 100 Rebstöcke einer ganz besonderen Züchtung. In einer mehrstündigen Aktion pflanzten Mitglieder des Gartenbauvereins Prien und Umgebung pilzwiderstandsfähige PIWI-Rebsorten.

Solaris, Johanniter, Nero und Bianca heißen die Reben, die auf Initiative von Gisela Wüstinger in St. Salvator gepflanzt wurden. In Reih und Glied stehen die Rebstöcke seit Mitte Mai dank der Arbeit einer Handvoll Freiwilliger des Gartenbauvereins (GBV). Vor Jahren hatte der Verein an diesem Hang schon einmal einen Weinberg angelegt. „Massiver Mehltaubefall machte jedoch eine Rodung erforderlich“, ruft Christian Steinbichler, Baumwart des GBV, in Erinnerung und hofft durch die pilzresistenten Sorten jetzt auf einen ansehnlichen Ertrag.
