1986 - Grantschener Salzberg (Württemberg)
1986 Grantschener Salzberg may be the only red wine in my collection of German wine labels. Grantschen is a distict of Weinsberg, about 6 km (4 miles) east of Heilbronn. This may be the only red wine in my collection of German wine labels.
Ursula (Ulla) Traulsen (Prof. Bräuning's daughter) and her husband served this wine at their home in Neumünster. They had a houseful of people and had several wines that evening. All were from Württemberg and were sent by her father. From my notes: They brought both white and red wine from the cellar, but the star was the red wine (surprisingly for Germany, and for my taste), Grantschener Salzberg 1986 Trollinger und Lemberger.
The winegrowers' cooperative label was little changed from 10 years earlier. It still had the slogan "One for all and all for one," and the snooty connoisseur with "Connoisseurs drink Württemberg wine." The red border and red glass indicate red wine.
