About the event

In times when you can’t visit the winery, we’re bringing the winery to you!

To celebrate the St Andrews Alumni weekend and the launch of the German association’s new website, join us for an evening of exclusive virtual wine tasting and a sneak-peek behind the curtains of the prestigious VDP.WEINGUT AUGUST ESER.

Winemaker Dodo Freiherr zu Knyphausen (non-graduating Alumnus 2001) will guide us through the tasting and shed some light onto the realities and myths of his viticultural profession. You’ll not only get the chance to try some outstanding wine, but will also be informed of corresponding food choices prior to the event, so that nothing may stand in the way of a 360-degree taste adventure.

If you would like to participate, please sign-up by clicking the RSVP button here!

To enjoy the full experience, please also order your set of wine (here: at the latest by Sunday, April 11th (Germany) or Thursday, April 8th (rest of Europe). Of course, you may order as much as you like and, governmental guidelines permitting, you can invite a friend or family member to join you for this exciting evening.

We are very much looking forward to this event and hope that many of you will be able to join.


Located in the Rheingau—the heart of the Riesling—the 10th generation winery is run by Dodo and his wife Désirée. They cultivate roughly 11 hectares of prime viticultural land throughout the region and produce around 100,000 bottles of Riesling and Pinot Noir per year. The winery has been a member of the VDP.association since 1971.
