Owner and winemaker Fred Merwarth, whom Hermann Wiemer transferred ownership of the winery to in 2003, has certainly kept the tradition of high-quality wines intact. In the October 2015 issue of Wine & Spirits, five of Wiemer's wines scored 91 points or higher, helping to cement their spot in the Top 100 this year, with their 2011 Cuvee Brut scoring a stellar 94 points. Congratulations to Fred, Maressa, Oskar and the entire Hermann Wiemer team!
The Sheldrake Point team of Tauck/Madill/Breeden/Weiman add another accolade to their belts, with a 95 point rating in Wine & Spirits magazine this year for their 2014 Wild Ferment Ice Wine Riesling solidifying their spot in the Top 100 this year. Congratulations to the Sheldrake Point team.
