Alexander Laible won Best Wine collection of the year by Feinschmecker Wine Award 2017
For the first time ever, the award went to a winemaker from Baden.
Alex commented: “This award is like the Oscar’s in Hollywood and I am deeply honoured as this means more than being knighted.”
He previously won ‘New Young Winemaker of the Year’ in 2010 and ‘Best Discovery’
The ceremony took place in the Relais & Chateau Schloss Bensberg, accompanied by Michelin starred chefs such as, Joachim Wissler and Christian Jürgens.
Iris and her team are extremely delighted about this award, albeit not surprised. Iris commented:
“We absolutely adore his wines and the clarity and elegance of his collection. We just need brave Sommeliers who will list something unknown in the UK, but a superstar in Germany!”

Grauerburgunder trocken “Alte Reben”
Weißburgunder trocken “SL”
Riesling trocken “Alte Reben”
Riesling trocken “Kalkmergel”
