German red wines of the year 2020 chosen / Weingut Rings awarded "Collection of the Year 2020”

The best German red wines were honoured today at a virtual awards ceremony for Meininger's Red Wine Award 2020.

The VDP.winery Rings from Freinsheim (Pfalz) is awarded with the "Collection of the Year 2020" at Meininger’s Red Wine Award. After the winery was already able to impress with its red wine collection in 2018, the red wines of brothers Steffen and Andreas Rings impress again this year. 

Christian Wolf, Director Degustation of Meininger’s Red Wine Award: "We are convinced that the quality of Pinot Noir has once again improved significantly. This is also shown by the results of this year's competition. Top producers, and we know more and more of them in Germany, manage to present absolute highlights and prime examples of Pinot Noir with great sensitivity even in challenging years. This year, however, I would like to point out that German red wine is not only Pinot Noir. Well-known grape varieties such as Portugieser, Frühburgunder or St. Laurent have shown that variety can be something beautiful. International varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah have also developed incredibly well. I believe that we can expect a lot more here in the future".

All award-winning German red wines are now available on the following pages.
