Weltachs Winery of Grosskarlbach, Germany, is making its initial, public presentation of its wines at the prestigious US Alcohol Trade Tasting (USATT) Exhibition and Alcohol Beverage Importers & Distributors Conference (ABID), on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 15th and 16th, 2018, at the Metropolitan Pavillion, in New York City.

Weltachs Winery is a newcomer to North America despite its century-old tradition as a producer of well-made, popular wines from the Pfalz region of Germany, the nation’s warmest wine-growing area. In addition to its domestic and European sales, Weltachs also celebrates a decade of commercial presence in China, Japan and Singapore. These markets account for approximately 75% of Weltachs’ production capacity amounting to circa four million bottles annually.

Weltachs’ first wine shipments to the United States arrived here about six months ago. Initial sales began this past winter with encouraging results. Exhibiting on its own, Weltachs’ attendance at the USATT/ABID is a major milestone demonstrating a solid commitment to the American market. As such, Weltachs will be joining more than 90 international exhibitors presenting wines, craft beers, spirits and industry-related services at the USATT.

On hand will be more than 30 distribution companies and importers intent on sampling new products for inclusion in their sales programs as well as countless retailers, sommeliers, restaurateurs, caterers and beverage trade journalists.

"This is a very exciting moment for us," says Dirk Maeuerer, Weltachs’ owner and general manager. "We are extremely fortunate to be able to place and sell four of our most popular wines in the United States only a few months after our arrival late last year.

We now present our wines to a wider public of wine experts, journalists, buyers and other trade specialists at one of America’s most important events for small and medium-sized producers."

With the warm weather upon us, we are proud to show our Rosé made from the versatile Portugieser grape; likewise our crisp Riesling with mild acidity, and the hearty, rich, full-flavored Dornfelder red wine, a terrific choice for grilled meats and barbeque which are now as popular in Germany as in America."

Represented in the United States by Liquid Projects, LLC, of Brooklyn, New York, Weltachs has quickly acquired distribution in New England, the Mid-Atlantic States, and is also present in the Mid- and Far West.

According to Lars Dahlhaus, Liquid Projects’ co-founder and managing partner, Weltachs’ presence in New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia, as well as in Michigan and Nevada, mandates Weltachs reaching out to a broader professional base by actively participatinging in the vital New York show and conference.

"Weltachs wines are solid, well-made, designed to appeal to a broad base of people who enjoy good wine at reasonable everyday prices. Our bottles cost about $10, well within normal consumers’ budgets for wines to be enjoyed every day," says Dahlhaus.

"When it comes to value, Weltachs is unique: the wines are impressively good, tasty, and work well with a wide variety of foods as well as on their own. They show low acidity, soft tannins, good fruit and refreshing mouth-feel. Weltachs has proven itself for well over a century at home in Germany both in its own back-yard, the famous Palatine wine-growing area, home to Germany’s famous Wine Route as well as Germany- wide," Dahlhaus avers.

Weltachs owns its own vineyards in and around Grosskarlbach but works extensively with more than 150 trusted area vineyards. Most of these growers have worked with Weltachs for at least 20 years and they can be relied upon to fulfill Weltachs’ stringent, exact standards for fruit quality and fully-ripened, healthy grapes. Despite its large-scale production, Weltachs remains a family-owned, mid-szed company, embedded in an ancient community, with commitment to traditional German winemaking and cultural values.
