JAMESSUCKLING.COM: THE TOP 25 DRY GERMAN RIESLINGS OF 2016
“… One of the producers who would have been on that list of great wines a generation ago is on this list today. I rated the 1990 Berg Schlossberg Riesling from the Georg Breuer estate in Rüdesheim/Rheingau 90-91 points when I first tasted it from cask back in the late spring of 1991. It was made by Bernhard Breuer who died in 2004. The 2015 of the same wine was made by his daughter Theresa and scores a 97 on today’s hit list. …”

RELEASE 2014 BERG SCHLOSSBERG – ARTIST LABEL KARIN MAMMA ANDERSSON
We are very delighted to annonce that the outstanding swedish artist Karin Mamma Andersson signs responsible for the label of our 2014 Berg Schlossberg.
Karin Mamma Andersson was born in Luleå in 1962 and educated at the Kungliga Konsthögskolan in Stockholm. Her artistic work has amongst others already been shown at the Venice Biennale, the MoMa in New York and the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and is represented by leading galleries worldwide.
Andersson lives and works with her family in Stockholm.
She is married to artist Jockum Nordström who developed the label for our 2004 Berg Schlossberg ten years ago.
Karin Mamma Andersson’s artistic oeuvre is characterized by its almost exclusive and therefore complex commitment to painting: the allusive settings and emotionally charged scenarios Andersson creates in her works ladle from the recourse to a wide arsenal of varying painting techniques. Andersson’s compositions appear dreamlike and at the same time rooted in daily routines.
For the label of our 2014 Berg Schlossberg the artist created a woodcut – a novelty in Andersson’s work. The technique of woodblock printing is a manual cutting resp. printing technique that Mamma Andersson has dealt with since the past year.
When she started developing the label Andersson found an antiquarian book on hunting in the 1930s while researching for another project in parallel. In that book a picture of a “german hare” stroke her eye and she immediately understood that the hare must be the motif for the Schlossberg label: in Andersson’s imagination that hare sits high upon the mountain looking down at the vineyards of Rüdesheim.
