About the Generation Riesling

In 2006, the German Wine Institute (DWI) has established the Generation Riesling (GR). Starting in 2009 when a first GR-website was established, the lively platform for young German wine producers reaches audiences on a global scale. Since then GR has grown into the world's largest community of well educated, internationally experienced and highly ambitious wine professionals up to the age of 35 – bringing together winegrowers, business directors and cellar masters from cooperatives and estate wineries.

GR's members embody the spirit of innovation, quality and engagement that defines the German winegrowing community. Their portfolios of modern wines are winning converts with each pour. While Riesling as Germany's most famous grape holds the prime position in the group's title, the organization proudly represents the entire spectrum of German grape varieties
