Very Old and Rare German Wine

Friday, July 12, 2002

We have tried very old and rare German wines.  Some date back 1930's. The wines have been bought at different wineries  within the last 20-30 years to be stored in Pieroth's cellar. Please take a look at the picture left and see how clear they were. These wines were kept in extremely good condition. They were selected and brought up by Kevin, the Cellar Master.
