About the Lagen Cup:
The Lagen Cup (part of the Berlin Wine Cups) is an independent wine competition which was launched by Berlin-based sommelier Serhat Aktas in 2018. As the name suggests, it is all about German Lagen wines.
Divided into white and red, the Lagen Cup is organised twice a year. A jury of 10, consisting of sommeliers, wine journalists and wine merchants, taste the wines blind and rate them according to the internationally accepted 100-point scheme.
The results are published on the official website www.berlinerweincups.de.
