12/30 Mundus Vini

is the name of an academy here in Neustadt/Weinstrasse (=Pfalz) where famous international wine awards are given, lots of seminars being held and more. It is the daughter company of one of Germany's oldest publishing houses. ( for more information. Since a few years they even have a nice restaurant, winebar and lounge, which we always visit when coming to the area. So we did yesterday, middle of the day. I just have to have my glass of von Buhl's Riesling Sekt brut, which tastes so crisp, clear, fine and delicate that it can always stand up against many Champagnes - especially at a price of 8 € per bottle 75 cl.
Besides the perfect flair of the winebar ( - note: not all their wines are on the website!), with a view out over the picturesque market square with the church to the side, the houses' concept makes us happy: Ca 200 different wines from Pfalz, Germany other, Europe and New World can be enjoyed at the place or bought home. Served @ table per bottle will cost 10€ over the list price - no matter if it is a 8€ or 50€ wine. 10€ is the service fee. Easy to understand for every one! And while we are sitting there over sekt, Riesling wine (my husband) and a mediterranean platter (shared), thanking god for being so kind to us and giving us that luxury feeling of being priviliged once again, people come in and buy home some wines as presents and to themselves. We left the place with some Grosse Gewächs from Pfalz, some more Riesling, Sekt, South African wine and headed to the Italian delicatessen-store to shop for some Italian wines to take home to Sweden. Nothing beats buying wine from authentic sources!
