Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

My name is Martin Palmer. I come from a wine village in the Nahe wine region of Germany which is located in West Germany one hour South of Frankfurt/Main.

In 2008 and 2009 I attended sommelier and wine school in Hong Kong and on December 6th, 2008 opened Thomas Palmer Fine German Wines (H.K.) Ltd. which is a Boutique German Wine Company that specializes exclusively in the "Einzel Lage" Pinot Noirs and DRY STYLE Rieslings of the Nahe wine region of Germany.

"Einzel Lage" is the German name for the "Best Single Vineyards" in Germany. They are
Germany's Grand Cru vineyards and over hundreds of years have proven to make the highest quality level of wines in Germany.

Why does Thomas Palmer Fine German Wines (H.K.) Ltd. only sell "Einzel Lage" wines and not ordinary German wines?

Because my family actually comes from a German wine village and I want to make sure that only the highest quality level of German wine is represented in Hong Kong. We are sharing our culture with the people of Hong Kong and want to provide them with only the best wines that Germany has to offer - "Einzel Lage". 

Historically over hundreds of years the Pinot Noir grape variety which is named "Spaetburgunder" in German has proven to make the highest quality level of red wines in Germany and the Riesling grape variety has proven to make the highest quality level of white wines. This is why we only have these two "Noble Grape Varieties" in our wine portfolio.

The reason why 95% of our Rieslings are made dry style is because historically the best Rieslings made in Germany were always made this way and they always come from "Einzel Lage" vineyards. 

We are honored to be the exclusive importer and distributor in Hong Kong and Macau of six world famous family owned wine estates all located a few minutes from our village in the Nahe wine region among them is the "2012 German Wine Maker of the Year" - Tesch:

Kruger Rumpf (VDP)
Dr. Crusius (VDP)
Von Racknitz
Toni Jost (VDP)
Ratzenberger (VDP)

Three times per year I return to the Nahe region to visit our six wine makers and to taste their different wines. After I have selected the wines which I feel pair best with the different cuisine styles found in Hong Kong and Macau they are shipped via air conditioned transport (14 Celsius) to my cliante controlled wine cellar in Hong Kong (14 Celsius - 75% Humidity)

It would be a pleasure to provide you with wine recommendations for any occasion and to host a private "Einzel Lage" German wine tasting for your next fine wine dinner, celebration or corporate event.

I am at your service at anytime and Thank You for your interest in the "Einzel Lage" Pinot Noirs and dry style Rieslings of my home region of Germany - Nahe. 

In Vino Veritas,

Martin Palmer
