Having grown up amidst the myths and legends of the Lorelei valley and the at times comical and pathetic clichés applied to the Rhine, perhaps the most Germanic river of them all, Friedrich Bastian uses a playful blend of wine, music and theatre to describe the road from winemaker to singer and back again in a style that is frank and jocular in equal measure. And so it is – though he could never have imagined it – that today Friedrich Bastian gladly takes to the stage as the “singing winemaker”. Cuvée Surprise is an informal, lively and playfully ironic presentation of the wines of the Middle Rhine, interwoven with a look at the cultural history of this magnificent landscape — introduced to the stage by one of the leading winemakers in this small wine growing region.
Cuvée Surprise is many things – just don’t expect a dry finish!
