Every time I try one of the wines produced by Villa Huesgen on the banks of the Mosel river in Germany I am captivated by their crisp, clear, character. Their website tells us that they believe in Origin. Tradition. Home. Family. Wine Culture.

In this podcast (a bit 'warbly' due to the Zoom connection) owner and winemaker Adolph Huesgen guides us through his extraordinary vineyards where aspect and steep  slopes of slate are unique and extreme within the world of wine. He gives us a glimpse into what drives his family to produce such brilliant wines. 'To enjoy means to show attitude. It is the aim of VILLA HUESGEN to satisfy the taste of our clients ... To enjoy means to take one‘s time, for each other and together. Everything that has to do with great wines needs time. And we take the time to create culinary experiences'.

This is where Riesling shines as the one of the most incredible grapes in the world. It also shows that terroir really does make a difference and that when a family, such as the Huesgens, really listens to the land the results are quite brilliant.

While all restaurants in Ireland were closed until recently many reopened only to have to close again! We should remember that many of these, including the wonderful Monty's of Kathmandu, are family businesses. They are often small and brilliant and need our support more than ever. This is a very, very difficult time for restaurants across Ireland. Keep Safe and Keep well. 

Kevin Ecock's WinePod is brought to us with the assistance of the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu - an excellent place to host events and celebrations. One day, hopefully soon, this will once again be available to us all.
