Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries

We are thrilled to share that Wine & Spirits Magazine has named THREE of our portfolio producers – Fritz Haag, J. Christopher and Wittmann – to their Top 100 Wineries list!

Fritz Haag, in Germany’s Mosel valley, produces graceful, well-refined Rieslings that cover the full style spectrum (dry to lusciously sweet) and are rated as impressive examples of the finest wines the Mosel region has to offer. Their estate vineyards are recognized as true pearls of the Mosel and were treasured even by Napoleon. Learn More About Fritz Haag

J. Christopher, in Oregon’s Willamette valley, produces handcrafted wines in small lots that are sourced from some of area’s best vineyards. Their Pinot Noirs, Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays, Rosés and new GG (dry, grand cru) Riesling showcase Old-World style and a patient, unhurried approach to winemaking. Learn More About J. Christopher

Wittmann, in Germany’s Rheinhessen region, pioneered the full-bodied, well-balanced style of dry wine for which the region has become known. In addition to Riesling, they produce Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, all with tension, depth and intensity, but at the same time fresh and elegant. Learn More About Wittmann
