German Winemakers Return to Troy

We hosted the German Winemakers back in March and we were thrilled to learn that our world-traveling winemaking friends were looking to make a return trip to Troy. Without hesitation, we accepted the offer.

Their previous visit marked one of our favorite events of last year.

On Wednesday, September 11 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Lucas Confectionery will once again host German winemakers representing the five classic wine growing regions of their country.


When it comes to world-class wine, most Americans think California, France or Italy first. The German Winemakers Summit will prove that Germany rivals all others in aromatic, ultra-refreshing white wine production.

During the event, each winemaker will present sample wine selections from their estate, paired with artisanal cheese selected by the Confectionery staff.

The following winemakers are scheduled to attend:

Derek Vinnicombe (representing three estates from the Mosel, Pflaz, and Saar regions):

  • Fitz Ritter Sekt and Gewvstraminer
  • Fischer Okfener Bockstein Kabinett
  • Schneider Patterburg Spatlese

  • Dr Thanisch Bernkateler Badstube Riesling Kabinett
  • Dr Thanisch Spatlese Trocken Riesling

  • Dr Heyden Oppenheimer Riesling Kabinett
  • Dr Heyden Sacktrager Rieslng Spatlese
