The best glass of wine
Tested quality in a glass – the stamp “Der beste Schoppen” (“The best glass of wine”) helps you to choose a wine and points the way to a good glass of wine. Regional professional associations started this initiative 15 years ago. They award wine producers and restaurateurs with the “Der beste Schoppen” seal of quality. The competition, initiated by the Hotel and Restaurant Association (Hotel- und Gaststättenverband) and supported by Moselle wine advertising and chambers, selects the best pub wines from the Moselle, Saar, Ruwer, and the best pub wines from the wine-growing areas Luxembourg and Lorraine are awarded with the “Terroir Moselle”. Some 250 winemakers and similarly many restaurateurs compete annually with approximately 1200 wines. That, of these, 96 percent have recently received the coveted seal of approval, proves the high quality of the registered pub wines. Wine lovers will feel particularly at home in a “Haus des Besten Schoppen” (“House of the best glass of wine”). Only houses, which have been awarded a prize three years in a row, are allowed to be adorned with this plaque.
